The original fried chicken sandwich (photo from Bakesale Betty).
East Bay folks have been eagerly anticipating the second location of ~BAKESALE BETTY~ opening in Oakland’s Uptown (it’s just across from Luka’s Taproom). Yup, now you’ll have two places to get your fried chicken or brisket or egg salad sandwich fix. And of course the kickass baked goods. If all goes well, the second location from owners Alison Barakat and her partner and husband, Michael Camp, will open this Thursday for a trial run. And depending on how things go, it will stay open the next day, or close for more tweaking. What this all means is follow their Facebook page for updates before you head over, with your heart pinned on a lemon bar.
As for the space, it will be a similar format to the original: no seats, just ironing boards outside, and hours (to start) are Wed-Sun 7am-3pm. But since there’s a larger kitchen area, there’s talk down the road about some expanded offerings, like wedding cakes or ice cream, and maybe even opening on first Fridays for Oakland Art Murmur, or at least later hours. Stand by. 2228 Broadway at W. Grand.
