The Inner Richmond is about to get another bakery, this time in the form of ~PRETTY PLEASE BAKESHOP~ on 3rd Avenue. The shop is a brick-and-mortar location for pastry chef Alison Okabayashi’s pastries and special event cakes. She previously did special orders exclusively through Two for Two Cakes, but the new venture will feature not only big special event cakes, but also smaller ones for birthdays and other celebrations. There will also be small pastry items like cookies, cupcakes, and her signature retro-style desserts, like cream puffs, Rice Krispies treats, housemade Oreos and Twinkies, and snowballs. She will not be serving coffee because she shares a building with a coffee shop where you can go fetch a cup before heading over to sample the goodies. Opening is tentatively set for the first week of August. 291 3rd Ave. at Clement, 415-347-3733.
