Former Theo Chocolates head chocolatier Autumn Martin tells Seattle Times' Rebekah Denn that she will open a bricks and mortar shop for her Hot Cakes business on suddenly very hot Ballard Avenue. The site was previously home to Gifted, a gift shop. Martin envisions the Ballard Hot Cakes as an "evening dessert space." A rep for Martin tells us that she chose Ballard, having lived in the hood for for ten years and liked the vibe of Ballard Avenue. Look for a May debut for the dessert shop.
