Fat Angel - new bakery in Fairfax

Mick Ruthven | Jun 3, 2006 05:46 PM

I was in Fairfax today and saw that the new Fat Angel bakery was open, so of course I had to go in and try something. I sampled a piece of a chocolate thing that I liked a lot and asked what it was, then got one, a Chocolate Voodoo. It's basically a brownie with a soft center (not cream filled, just soft moist pastry), great chocolate flavor, and cherries. It really works, and is now up there at the top of my list of favorite chocolate things. It make me want to try everything they have. The owner worked at Bovine bakery in Pt. Reyes Station and this is her first bakery of her own. Now it's up to the rest of you to tell us how the rest of the things are!

Their location has been occupied by terminally mediocre bakeries for a long time so this is a welcome change.
