Bake For You

bake for you cookiesA quick heads up: Bake For You is planning to take over the former All Good Bakers space at 540 Delaware Ave in Albany -- the DelSo (Delaware South) area that also includes The Cheese Traveler, Mingle, and Nicole's.

Bake For You has been operating out of a small kitchen near Albany's Washington Park for the last few years, selling at the Delmar Farmers' Market and producing baked goods for local businesses. It's become known for its interesting cookies -- including locally-themed varieties such as the DelSo cookie.

Owner Linda Kindlon tells us she'll be using the 540 space to sell a range of sweets, coffee and tea, as well as cards and other gift items. The opening target date is November 12. Kindlon said she's excited back in the neighborhood where she grew up.

This is fantastic news! Best of luck, Linda! Can't wait to stop in for some treats.

That's exciting news! Love the cookies!

I am eagerly awaiting having a bakery in the neighborhood again!! Can't wait!!

Good luck, LK and BFY!

I'm soooo.. excited for this..

however, given my lack of control re: cheese and chocolate and cookies, I think I'm going to have to walk to the DelSo from now on... and maybe loop the block a few times.

This is fantastic news. I now have a great idea for Christmas gifts for my mother-in-law: DelSo Cookies! :)
