Sites and Bites

This week for Sites and Bites we’re venturing across the Bay Bridge to Oakland! My friend Maia had introduced to a few hot spots there this summer and I thought it would be fun to share a couple with you today. We’re hitting up an incredibly well curated home goods store called Atomic Garden and then an amazing delicious eatery called Bakesale Betty. 

Atomic Garden is one of these incredible shops that you feel like you could spend all day in, dreaming up your imaginary home filled with white Scandinavian furniture and toddlers with good table manners. These incredibly crafted home goods, kitchenware, linens, clothing, and paper products of beautiful simplicity are so dreamy!

Their products are sourced from all over the world, hand crafted in small production and supporting local artisans. I could spend hours there handling each piece. Their timeless style is just impeccable. This is the kind of place that could do series damage to my bank account! It’s virtually impossible to go in and not come out with something beautiful and unique to take home.

Keep reading to hear about the amazing deliciousness at Bakesale Betty!

A couple miles away is an Oakland institution of Bakesale Betty which, as you can see on the menu above, only sells these incredible fried chicken sandwiches and a couple treats. That’s it!

I love it when a restaurant focuses on making one thing perfect, and Bakesale Betty absolutely nailed it with that friend chicken sandwich! It comes with this yummy spicy cabbage, jalapeno slaw, and the fried chicken is the best I’ve ever had. Hands down!

Everyone eats outside on these fun vintage ironing boards! My sweet fashion contributor Ashley joined me this week and was totally down for all my annoying photo opts. She’s the best!

bakesale betty sometimes offers an amazing banana bread, summertime strawberry shortcake, and super hearty take home frozen chicken pot pies! As much as i love to bake and cook, i am a sucker for their oatmeal raisin cookies and the banana bread!

This looks amazing? That store, the sandwich! I’m craving fried chicken now…

That fried chicken sandwich looks to-die-for!! Now my breakfast just doesn’t measure up!

I poped into atomic garden after our quick meet up.. I am in Love with all their kitchen goodies! I got an awesome classic flour sifter and a few other fun things. still need to hit up bake sale betty though. There is always something new and awesome to try in Oaktown!
