VISIT THEM TODAY AT THE PROCTOR FARMERS MARKET >>>
Do you miss Tacoma's beloved Upper Crust Bistro & Bakery? I know I do. After losing the lease on their former brick and mortar location on North 21st in July 2011, fans have been wondering about the future of the bakery and café.
I caught up with co-owner Leo Nichols at the Proctor Farmers Market, where they now sell their baked goods and pizza every Saturday. Nichols informed me that he and co-owner Loren Robinson are still looking for the perfect space to relocate, but that for now they're baking out of the commercial kitchen at Burning Cupcakes.
Look for their moist, flaky scones in a variety of flavors, including raspberry, blackberry, lemon-ginger, bacon cheddar, jalapeño mozzarella and my favorite, sun-dried tomato basil.
Drop by their booth for lunch and grab a slice of their regular pepperoni or cheese pizza, or the flavor of the day, such as artichoke heart, sun-dried tomato and feta.
Sweet treats like chocolate croissants and various cookies fly off the tables each weekend. Their donuts come in inventive flavors such as coconut cream, mango peach orange, toasted coconut and blackberry.
While the lovable chef statue that once stood outside of their bakery might have to remain a memory for now, I'm thrilled to still be able to fulfill my weekly scone fix. You can find Upper Crust Bistro & Bakery at your local farmers market this season: Proctor (Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.), 6th Avenue, South Tacoma, and Broadway starting in early May, as well as possibly Lakewood.

Banff National Park is a breath of fresh air. A small mountain town with world class facilities...
