Cupcake bakery opens on Kitsap Way

cupcakesThe cupcake craze is supposed to be over, right?

Baker Trisha O’Meara isn’t buying it.

“People always say that,” she said. “Then they come in and eat cupcakes.”

O’Meara just opened her cupcake shop, Goody Cottage, in a little house in Kitsap Lake Junction, across the street from the Red Apple grocery store. She transplanted the business from Southern California, where she first started selling cupcakes out of a converted ice cream van.

O’Meara bakes cupcakes in a few dozen different flavors, and whips up batches of Parisian macarons (not to be confused with macaroons), gourmet cookies, breakfast muffins, and tres leches cakes served in Ball jars.

She plans to keep store hours Tuesday through Saturday at 6715 Kitsap Way. Orders can be placed seven days a week for curbside pickup.

Goody Cottage can be reached at 760-672-6405, and found on Facebook and on Yelp.

Motel 6 will leave the light on for Bremerton


Bremerton’s old Dunes Motel will reopen this fall as West Sound’s first Motel 6.

A Motel 6 spokesperson said to expect a grand opening in October.

The Dunes Motel had fallen into foreclosure, eventually closing in late 2013, at a time when other Bremerton hotels were experiencing an upswing.

DVR Investment, LLC., of Tuckwila bought the 11th Street property from Whidbey Island Bank for $780,000 in October 2013, according to county documents. The building underwent an overhaul this year.

The 64-room Dunes, built in 1978, was one of several motels providing budget rooms along the Kitsap Way corridor.

Verizon Wireless retailer opens on Kitsap Way

blog.verizonA GoWireless Verizon store is open in the Kitsap Way building once occupied by Blockbuster.

The new retail outlet opened Thursday next to QFC. A grand opening will likely be held in February.

The new 3,000-square-foot Kitsap Way store is positioned to draw in traffic from the busy thoroughfare. There is also a GoWireless outlet on Wheaton Way, near Fred Meyer.

“We’re always growing, always expanding,” said manager Katie Mantey.

The store will carry a full lineup of phones, tablets and other devices. Live displays should be up and running soon. Customers can sign up for home services at the branch.

The Blockbuster video store closed two years ago.

Clarification made: This is a GoWireless store, a Verizon retailer.
