For those who do not live on Long Island, or have never visited, Tates Bake Shop in the Hamptons alone is worth the trip!! The buttery, crunchy cookies that come out of this amazing bakery can make anyones day 100x better and the best part about the bakery is they sell much much more than just cookies…

About Tate’s Bake Shop:

Kathleen King, founder and owner of Tate’s Bake Shop, began baking when she was just eleven years old, selling small batches of her crisp, buttery chocolate chip cookies off of a fold-out card table on North Sea Farm, her parents’ Long Island farmstead.

In 1980, when she was only 21, Kathleen rented a space her mother spotted and opened her first bake shop. She developed a full line of traditional American baked goods, perfecting every recipe herself and baking each dessert from scratch. Named after her father, Tate’s Bake Shop is the result of Kathleen’s love of baking and keen eye for quality.

Voted the Best Bakery in the Hamptons for many years, Tate’s Bake Shop is a destination for locals and tourists alike. Kathleen’s personality is in every inch of the store, from the fresh flowers to the carved wooden tables. “People feel very comfortable coming here,” Kathleen says, “and that’s part of the experience of coming to Tate’s Bake Shop. It just goes with chocolate chip cookies and apple pie.” With a community of loyal customers and lines that stretch out the door, Tate’s Bake Shop is, as the New York Times noted, “worth putting miles on the odometer.”

From cookies and pies to gluten-free products, Tate’s is the bakery to beat! My absolute favorite Tate’s creation is the Butterscotch Pecan Cookies – they are literally to die for!!!! I often have to forcefully stop myself from eating an entire bag… and thats why its no surprise that I wrote my “exercise is the devil” post lol! These scrumptious cookies with a hint of maple are worth every single sinful bite…


Have you ever had the pleasure of tasting a Tate’s product?? Share your story!!

    They look delicious! I love cookies…. I’ve never been to the Hamptons with living all the way across the country and all, and I don’t think I’ll go anytime soon… but let me know if they decide to sell their stuff online! 😀

  9. It seems that every post I come across tonight is food-related and now I’m craving some serious deserts and pecan butterscotch cookies would do just fine!
