Fabulous Brat Packer ~Molly Ringwald~ was at Shakewell last week, visiting her friend, co-owner Tim Nugent. Apparently, the two became friends when Nugent was executive pastry chef at the Sir Francis Drake and Ringwald was staying there. She was in town for a performance at Yoshi’s, and then stopped by the next day for coffee, pastries, and to say hello. A veritable breakfast club, we’d say. She even posted a photo on Twitter, looking even better than pretty in her classic trench and sunglasses.
