Specialty’s is a chain cafe/bakery with multiple locations throughout the Bay Area.  For some strange reason, most places where I’ve worked before had Specialty’s close by.  I was introduced to Specialty’s at Genentech when I was started out as an admin and had to help order food for meetings.  I quickly learned the menu, what people liked, what to order, and what not to order.

Specialty’s is known for its cookies and baked goods; hence, the bakery part of its name.  They even have a Cookie Radar to advertise which of its locations has just finished baking a fresh batch of cookies.  I’ll sometimes bring home a half-dozen cookies as a treat for the girls.  It’s also known for their sandwiches; hence, the cafe part of its name.  The two particular ones that were selected most when I was taking orders was The Chairman (Turkey/Swiss/Avocado) and the now-discontinued Heifer (ginormous amount of Roast Beef inside cheese bread with horseradish easily enough for 2 people).

But what I love Specialty’s for the most is……..the Wild Blueberry Coffee Cake.  It’s absolutely scrumptious breakfast food!  Cinnamon streusel, icing, and wild blueberries on top of a fluffy coffee cake makes a great way to start the day for a sweet tooth like me.  They also have coffee cake in flavors that vary depending on what store you frequent like cranberry, apple, and peach on top, etc.
