Summer Kitchen + Bake Shop
  2944 College Ave./Ashby Ave., Claremont, (510) 981-0538.  L-D daily; $$.  No reservations.  Mimicking an old-fashioned cottage with touches such as a screen door and ceiling fan, this small counter-order spot knows how to make a sandwich.  A favorite is the apple-smoked bacon with avocado, piquillo pepper, arugula, and housemade mayo. The hefty fried chicken consists of a flat slice of crispy fried chicken breast, coleslaw, mustard sauce, and housemade sweet pickles.  Salads include watermelon with feta and sherry vinaigrette, curried chicken, and both cauliflower and beet.  Burgers and pizza are also available.  Cupcakes and marble cake make a nice dessert, and Ici is just next door for ice cream.  Heftier dinners become available at 4 p.m.
