I had heard a couple of weeks back that West Coast Whoopies in Calimesa had closed.
I held off writing anything until after I had a chance to check it out for myself.
Lo and behold, after a recent tour of the Yucaipa Adobe, I drove over to Calimesa to find a giant “for lease” sign in the spot formerly occupied by West Coast Whoopies.
However, the Web site for West Coast Whoopies is still alive and kicking.
I remember from our visit last year that Queen Whoopie Maker Alisa Evans had her fingers in lots of pies, so to speak, and at the time, they had just started a separate facility somewhere in Yucaipa.
So, the retail bakery may be gone, but I’d like to believe the Whoopie pies (and cakes and breads and more) live on!
