In a rickety house on University Way that goes by the name of Fat Ducks, you’ll find a woman who’s constantly baking up a storm. The house is decorated with Christmas garland and duck knick-knacks, and there are always trays of cookies cooling on couches (where customers would otherwise be able to sit). Needless to say, the pastries here would definitely be the first to sell out at a school bake sale. There are cold cut sandwiches served here, too - but don’t leave without a peanut butter death bar and a black and white cookie.
