I just ordered a bunch of Ada's cookie boxes to deliver to friends for the holidays. They are amazing! Highly recommend if you're looking for last minute gifts that support a great cause.

Please consider a last minute donation to either Ada's directly or to the City of Palo Alto's business recovery fund. These are tax deductible. You can donate to the Palo Alto Business Relief fund here Web Link
