New Bakesale Betty location in Downtown Oakland
Soft open today. At 9am, they had 4 kinds of cookies - choc chip w/ and w/o nuts, molasses and oatmeal. One pie - rhubarb orange ($4 slice and $25 for the whole?) 3 scones - apricot/almond, ginger/pear and lemon/raisin.
I think the prices are not set yet, but I got 2 cookies and 3 scones for $6.75 (and they threw in an extra scone so a great deal!)
They'll start selling their fried chicken sandwiches at 10am today.
No iron boards or chairs out yet, so you'll have to bring back to the office to eat.

The irony boards are out there now for lunch.
Line was about half a block deep at 1PM. Same annoying yuppies in line. Same mediocre fried chicken and bland slaw. They had already run out of egg salad.
Got a free molasses cookie.
I wish Bakesale Betty the greatest success. I was among their biggest boosters when they first opened. Somewhere along the line the chicken got dryer and the slaw milder.
I guess I've moved on.

I've noticed the slaw getting milder but it might not be their doing, discussion here about milder jalapenos: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/702855
I had a FC salad the other day and thought it had cut bell peppers, not jalapenos. Any way, thanks for the report, I guess I'll have to let the lines die down before going to uptown. Lunch crowd-wise, they are in a prime location.
Cindy, the site's autolinking has added a place link to the original location of Bakesale Betty, which you probably didn't want to do. You should see a blue "remove" button that you can click to make it disappear. Now everyone has the ability to add new restaurants to the Restaurants and Bars database, so you can enter the new location when you have a chance. Thanks.
