R.I.P. West Coast Whoopies?

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!
