Tate’s Bake Shop founder and baker, Kathleen King, started baking cookies when she was eleven, and she’s never stopped. By high school, she was already perfecting her signature thin, crisp, buttery and caramel tasting chocolate chip cookies. And at 20, she opened her first bakery. Since then Tate’s has developed multiple lines of baked goods, including chewy varieties, as well as cakes, bars, muffins, pies, scones and breads.
I see Tate’s not only in gourmet groceries but also in many of the bodegas and delis in the City, and I can never resist picking up a bag of cookies. For snack, afternoon tea or picnic, Tate’s is always a hit.
