Blogger and cookbook author Fanny Lam has opened a bakeshop storefront right off Commercial Drive. Previously her signature shortbread cookies, tarts, cheesecakes, and more were only available by private order or at farmers’ markets, so this marks a great chance to get the goods on the spot – and in the same spot.
