Social Talk about town logo

A local home baker took to social media this week asking if there were any bakery items currently not available in our area that locals love. Those with a sweet tooth jumped into the conversation wanting the following items more readily available: princess cake with marzipan, vegan and gluten-free desserts (nonspecific), scuffins (half muffin, half scone), beehive cakes, napoleons, cannoli and a good old-fashioned rum cake. 

You may be able to find some of these sweet treats at a new bakery that recently opened in Antioch. Cambell’s Bakery and Café, located at 211 G Street in Antioch, had its soft opening on June 30. According to the bakery’s Facebook page, guests can find a variety of gourmet cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pies, specialty coffee drinks and smoothies.  

If the talk about sweets has you hungry, DoorDash is a new food delivery option available in East County that delivers meals directly to your doorstep. On-demand delivery is new to many consumers, so some people may not know how DoorDash works. Customers find their favorite restaurant using the DoorDash app, pay for the price of their food and any local taxes, plus a delivery fee, an optional Dasher tip and a service fee. Many people have been posting their positive experiences about the service. One person wrote, “I use DoorDash about once a week, and really like it. My food always comes hot, fresh and right on time – sometimes even earlier than expected!”  Another person posted, “I love DoorDash, when I’m really busy and I don’t want to stop to cook or go out to get food; it is a lifesaver.”

If you need to work off some sweets you may want to try your hand at bocce ball. The City of Brentwood Parks and Recreation posted about a new co-ed bocce ball league for adults. Leagues will meet at Veteran’s Park, Wednesdays, Aug. 8 – Sept. 26, with games scheduled between 6 to 9 p.m. A minimum of four players on the roster, with their signatures, must be submitted at the parks and recreation office, 35 Oak St., along with league fees ($135/team). Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and eight teams is the max for the league, so sign up soon. A registration packet can be found online at https://bit.ly/2zo5Y8I.
