Tate's Bake Shop Takes Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Award
May 07, 2012 | East End Eats
Southampton staple Tate's Bake Shop was recently awarded best chocolate chip cookies in America by Consumer Reports. Over the past 12 years, the thin, crisp chocolate chip cookies, as well as other sweets from founder/owner Kathleen King and team, have garnered a loyal following. Oprah's a fan and come summer, seasoned Hamptonites and tourists alike pack the storybook Victorian bake shop for a taste.
The confections have deep roots in the area—Kathleen King first made chocolate chip cookies at age 11 to sell at her family's farm stand, not far out of town from where Tate's stands today. In addition to their famous chocolate chip cookies, Tate's also sells a variety of other cookies, as well as cakes, pies, muffins, brownies, and even gluten-free baked goods. The brand even offers sweets available for purchase online, and King has authored a cookbook, Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook. We can't wait to see what's in store this summer, and sink our teeth into the award-winning cookies. 43 N. Sea Rd., Southampton, 283-9830
