A report by Dana Eastland: The transition of Bernal’s Sandbox Bakery to ~PINKIE’S BAKERY~ that we reported in June is now complete. To recap, Sandbox owner Mutsumi Takehara sold the bakery on Cortland to Cheryl Storms and Chris Beerman, co-owners of Pinkie’s. Their original location in SoMa is still open, and now the Bernal spot allows them to offer even more of their artisanal breads, pastries, and cakes.
They are currently providing bread to many restaurants around town, including the Parker House rolls at 4505 Meats, burger buns at Starbelly, and rolls at New England Lobster Co., and will be able to take on even more clients. Beginning next week, Bernal residents can find Pinkie’s signature pastries at the new location, including their cake slices (whole cakes available by special order), doughnuts, signature pastries (hello, bacon brioche), and whoopie pies.
In addition to their sweet goods, the new location will be offering an all-new menu of sandwiches, all served on Pinkie’s breads, of course. Because they’ll be using the Bernal location’s kitchen in addition to the SoMa one, you’ll now be seeing Pinkie’s pastries at Ritual and Equator coffee shops too. Hours are Mon-Fri 6am-3pm and Sat-Sun 7am-3pm. 833 Cortland Ave. at Gates, 415-642-8580.
