What IS that little blue shop on Main Street inPoint Arena? Franny’s Cup & Saucer was opened in April of 2006 by Frances (Franny) Burkey and her mom, Barbara Burkey. Barbara was an experienced, life-long professional baker, and Franny was a sort-of experienced professional baker. Barbara and Franny first began working together in 1992 when Barbara and her husband Doug (Franny’s dad) opened the Tomales bakery and found that Franny was an excellent source of cheap labor. In 1997 they moved to Point Arena and Doug and Barbara opened the Point Arena Bakery, where Franny worked on and off throughout high school and beyond. After the bakery closed its doors in 2004, Barbara and Franny found themselves craving an outlet into which to funnel their love of food, monkeys, and knick-knacks. Hence, Franny’s Cup & Saucer was born! Franny’s offers an endless melange of baked goods,both sweet and savory,for breakfast, lunch and of course, dessert, all made at the bakery every morning. Franny’s also offers monthly brunches throughout the spring and summer, as well as birthday cakes and wedding cakes by special order.
