Port Washington’s cupcake-and-more emporium, Get Baked, has spawned a second location in Rockville Centre. According to partners Sandy Blane and Sean Basdavanos, the new store, which opened Oct. 14, has three times the space of the original, and that has allowed them to bring in a wider range of products. In addition to the cupcakes and snow balls (mounds of finely shaved ice drenched in flavored syrups) there are more baked goods and gelato from Baci, the fine gelateria in Williston Park.
A big part of the fun at Get Baked is taking a stool at the bar and chatting with the “bartender” as to which confection you'd like and what to chase it with: glass-bottled milk, coffee, tea, egg cream, hot chocolate. There's also a comfortable seating area for more intimate cupcake encounters.
Get Baked is at 19 S. Park Ave., Rockville Centre, 516-280-4704, and at 16 Main St., Port Washington, 516-439-4155.
