"Granny" Yakavetta

Cookie-Baking Grandmother


“Granny” Yakkavetta is known for baking the best cookies in Tacoma. Lines have been known to form around the block at her North Tacoma Bakery when she fires the oven up.

She has mastered the art of the Chocolate Chip Cookie, and is known for her huge variety of same. Her top seller is her Chocolate Chip & Bacon cookie (made with local bacon from the butcher shop next door), followed closely by her S’More cookie.

Despite occasional food shortages, she seems to nearly always have enough raw materials to keep the oven going, and she always greets customers with a cheery Russian-accented, “I’ll be with you in a moment, Dearie.”
