Rockenwagner Bakery - fair or questionable??

Sasha | Apr 4, 200601:02 PM

I've been buying brioche from their stand at the Sunday SM farmers market for awhile now, at $1 per bun. I went the the newly opened store on Washington this Sunday and they charged me $2 per for the same buns.

I know that Starbucks in the airport is more pricey than Starbucks on the street, and that City Bakery in Brentwood is more expensive than the same in NYC. But I feel like there are legitimate reasons for the price differential there. At R bakery, I couldn't help but feel that I was subsidizing the costs of opening their new branch.

What do you think? And let's not talk about whether $2 is a fair price for the brioche - that's not the point. The point is the discrepancy.

Btw, when I brought the FM price to the attention of the person behind the counter, she simply shrugged, as if she didn't know and didn't care to know.
