Bakesale Betty - It's all true!

Because of great reports from this board, I decided to drive from SF to Oakland today to try Bakesale Betty. It all looked so good, I wanted to try one of everything. There were 3 kinds of scones (I got the raisin), got a pecan shortbread cookie, and the fried chicken sandwich. I was eying the strawberry shortcake but decided I'd try it another time. They had many cases of beautiful aromatic peaches that they were making up for pie. I decided to get 2 slices to go; they said they'd bring it to me as soon as the pies had cooled off a bit.
While I ate some of the sandwich, an employee came to me with the shortcake, saying it was on the house; I was amazed. (Glad I'd brought a cooler with blue ice so that I could bring most of it home.)
When I went to get the slices of pie, the owner handed me a whole pie in a box and said it was for me -- that that's how she promotes her business. I have never before seen such generosity. Everything was wonderful!!
