Tate's Bake Shop

Kathleen King was destined to be a baker. She started selling small batches of her popular chocolate chip cookies at her Long Island family farmstead when she was only 11! Ten years later, she ended up opening her first shop in Southampton that ran for a strong 20 years. A nasty legal scuffle with business partners over this shop led King to start a direct competitor called Tate's Bake Shop in 2001, named after her dad. New Yorkers regularly make a pilgrimage to Southampton for Tate's famous chocolate chip cookies  – now, everyone around the country can indulge in them. Anytime.
