The Towne Bakery (townebakery.com) is now open at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. I'm not quite sure how to differentiate this new shop from the other bakeries at the center, but it appears to be more of a cupcake store (that also sells meat pies, cheesecake and more.) I guess now you can start at Einstein Bros. for a fresh bagel, run to Starbucks for a coffee or Chuao for hot chocolate, get cookies in Ralphs, a french pastry in Champagne Bakery, rustic bread in Baker & Olive, and a cupcake in the Towne Bakery. You can then catch your breath by the fountain, before running down to the Village Mill Bakery for some fresh bread and donuts. Phew! I think we need to replace Barnes & Nobel with a health club, because I've gained 20 lbs just walking down the mall!
