The story behind Tate’s has become the stuff of legend: Kathleen King started baking cookies to sell at her family’s farm stand when she was just eleven-years-old, opened her first bake shop at twenty, then rebranded to Tate’s (her father’s nickname) at forty; today, you’ll find her baked goods in stores throughout the country. But the only Tate’s Bake Shop is in King’s hometown of Southhampton, and it is the real deal. Cookies are the obligatory purchase, but Tate’s also does brownies, blondies, even gluten-free goodies. You can order cakes, too.
