Red velvet cupcake

Just stopped by Pinisi a few nights ago – one of my favourite bakeries in town. Andy bounded out of the kitchen with exciting news, “I’m opening a second location!”


Pinisi has been one of my favourite bakeries since I moved to the city – remember my first few posts here and here?

“Sexy cocoa fluff” cupcakes

Andy took Greg and I south a few blocks to his new location, set to open in just under two weeks. It’s slightly bigger than the original Pinisi on 4th Street, but everything from the lighting to the cake stands and wall colours are distinctively Andy. What I found most impressive was that he did everything himself! Painting the walls, stripping the floors…a to z. Now that’s a labour of love :)

Cassava squares

The new location on 1st Avenue (near Houston) will have the same menu as 4th street, only there’s more room for lounging around. And there will be wifi!

Summer juices!

Oh! And do stop by for his new line of coollld juices for summer: “Cranberry Orange Blood”, “Orange Blackjack”, and “Fresh Limeade.” Refreshing to say the least.

Andy and I :)

Congrats, Andy! Will be back with reports on the new place ^_^

Happy Wednesday!

    Hi Kathy,Grats to Andy! I hope, hope, hope that it’s not too much of a good thing and he’s stretched thin. I’d go broke if I lived near one of his stores…The juices look great! What kind of cookie is that pictured? Is it crispy, airy, or soft? It looks good! I’ve been craving boro from Bunmeido lately – those huge cake-like cookies made with molasses. – Cassaendra

    Hey Cassaendra!It was the first time I’ve had such a cookie – very, very light and a little flaky. Sugar dusted…think shortbread meets palmiers, gone extra light! Oooo I miss Bunmeido’s boro too – it’s been so long since I’ve had one…you’ve induced a craving, heheheh :)Hey Melissa!The juices are fantastic – especially on a really hot day ^_^ Hey Ulla!Thank you!! :D

    I have been following your blog for a while now. Great pics! If your ever back on this side of the world(Hawaii), check out Sam Choy’s at Nimitz. We have over 12 different macarons, and expanding,(I know how partial you are to macarons) from haupia, pina-colada, mango, lilikoi(made with the fresh pulp of a lilikoi), and your classic flavors. Also, a whole array of European and American cookies, truffles, bonbons, and so on……………Hopefully, I’m still here when you get back(^__^)

    I went there for the first time a few days ago, and that Red velvet cake is Epic! Truly godly, moist, and a red that is almost fluorescent just makes it all the better. Your pictures are amazing as always and I am wondering if you have ever had their hamentashen? They looked very innocent in the window but delicious. ~GG

    I have seriously gained weight from indulging at Pinisi. I’m a sucker for the crumb tops and the pumpkin bread pudding was out of sight that was in the winter. Great place, so tasty. Thanks for highlighting it. It it wasn’t for I would not be carrying around these 5 extra pounds….LOL
