I believe that yogurt shops and cup cake bakeries are taking over the Bay Area. Just in my neck of the woods alone, I have counted three cupcakes shops due to open this weekend and two more yogurt shops under construction. I have been a frozen yogurt addict since last summer when Fraiche opened their doors in downtown Palo Alto. I even have the T-shirt to prove my love for Fraiche! Since Fraiche's success, many other shops have popped up around town. Here is my latest yogurt shop update for my neighborhood: Culture Frozen Yogurt is set to open in a few weeks on California Avenue. The shop will be run by two wonderful women, that happen to be local Moms. The Stanford mall now has a Tutti Frutti being built where the old Palm store used to be. (What does that say about Silicon Valley?)
Now on to cupcakes... Sprinkles is supposed to be opening in the Stanford mall as well. They have already opened shops in San Francisco. Local cupcake favorite, Kara's is supposedly opening this weekend in the Town and Country shopping center. Bebe cakes is also due to open in Palo Alto this fall. Unlike the medfly invasion, this latest Bay Area invasion does not require spraying. Let me know what is popping up in your neighborhood!
