About a Bite Bakery will replace Blush nightclub on K Street with its first downtown location.
The Gold-River based bakery will open a storefront next to Downtown and Vine, which already carried a selection About a Bite's gift boxes and desserts. Its original location is mostly just a commercial bakery where customers can pick up pre-ordered treats.
A phone message left on Tuesday evening seeking more information was not immediately returned.
When I visited the new location at lunch on Tuesday, it looks like renovation on the space had just begun and it will be months before About a Bite joins Estelle's, Ambrosia and Vampire Penguin as places to get your sweets fix on K street.
Here's how the bakery describes its offerings:
At About a Bite Bakery, we offer three uniquely delicious product lines…Bites, Bars, and Between 2 Cookies.
Are you wondering, “What is a Bite“? Well a bite is a unique cross between cookie and candy…and best of all it’s covered in quality couverture chocolate!
Our Bars are comprised of tasty layers of complimentary ingredients portioned into bite sized treats. What can you put Between 2 Cookies? You name it and we’ve tried it! We start with two delicious freshly baked cookies in a wide variety of flavors and fill them with luscious creme, gooey caramel, or rich chocolate…what could be better?

Containers to give West Sacramento project a lift - If all goes to plan, Federico Cohan sees local eateries built from shipping containers losing their novelty status and becoming a regular part of the Sacramento restaurant scene. Cohan recently announced a mixed-use development project in West Sacramento, in a lot adjacent to Broderick Roadhouse. It would encompass 15,000 square feet of retail and office space. The three-story project developed by Cohan and his Luxe Urban Life company would use a series of 320-square-foot shipping containers as the basis for the building. His team of partners in the project include Chris Jarosz, co-owner of Broderick Roadhouse. Midtown Sacramento is already home to two businesses built with shipping containers: Der Biergarten and Federalist Public House & Beer Garden. But Cohan wants to haul this concept much farther down the road. Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
