It may not be fancy, but they do require the basics when you decide to come calling, like clothes. Yup, you heard me. You do need to wear clothing when you come. As a frequent patron of Ted’s Bakery, I must say that I do appreciate this sign. I had to stand in line one day, and in front of me was a teeny surfer girl, who just came from the beach, standing there in her bikini. It was a small bikini. A very small bikini. Not nearly enough to cover her hiney.
Hiney aside, this is what Ted’s Bakery is well known for, their pies! You can find them in almost all the local grocery stores, but those are just the basics. If you want a plethora of choices, you need to drive down to the source of all this pie madness. On this day, I went with Strawberry Cream, Pineapple Cheese (as in cheesecake), and the classic Chocolate Mac Nut (that’s macadamia nut). During Thanksgiving, they have an awesome Pumpkin Cream Pie.
This is where it all goes down. These doughnuts are the best in the world. Truly. Second to none. And yes, I’ve had many a doughnuts. My hips are proof of that. These are melt-in-your-mouth good doughnuts! (Sluuuuuurp) Sorry, that was my drool.
Anyone who’s anyone on the North Shore pays Ted’s Bakery a visit. They leave their mark. Pro-surfers and the like. These surf boards are up high above the pies. Ted was smart to do that, because I don’t know if he would appreciate me as much leaving my mark. Maybe if I brought my own surfboard.
