I love it when fate steps in and redirects where I "think" I should be. For example, this morning I was to meet my bro-in-law, Vic, at Batch BakeShop in the Spokane's West-Central neighborhood. It turns out that Batch isn't open on Mondays, so we headed to the next closest option, a cafe called Indaba. While entering Indaba's door we noticed a small sign featuring Batch baked goodies. Double tall lattes, chocolate scones, and a ham and cheese croissant decorated our wood slab table. While the friendly baristas at Indaba informed us about the coffee options, the owner of Batch, Mika Maloney made her delivery of cookies, scones, muffins, and other heavenly treats. Batch BakeShop uses Northwest grown flours, real butter, and nothing artificial. Batch's website is a visual treat. I finished my breakfast with a Guatamalan double espresso, making this mornings foray an amazing way to begin the week. Batch BakeShop also sends out tweets such as: Batch Bakeshop @BATCHbakeshop. Nov 21 Brown butter sage & white cheddar biscuits about to go into the oven! Get here.
2023 W Dean. Open Tuesday-Friday 7am to 4pm. With Batch and Indaba in the same neighborhood, it's good food adventuring. Here is Indaba's FaceBook.
