Whenever we are traveling and are in the area near "coffee break" time, we head downtown to Essencia Artisan Bakery. Their desserts are so good. We like their cinnamon rolls.

The pastries here are to die for-- try the rhubarb croissant, you won't be disappointed!!! The coffee was good but a little too cool- I like very hot coffee. Service was polite and fast and the locals seem to love this place!!!

An unexpected find in Yakima - an authentic artisan bakery with every sweet meat you can possibly want to eat, including croissants, biscotti, macaroons, and pastries. Fresh baked breads and lattes, too, plus breakfast sandwiches and fresh fruit cups.

Essencia has an amazing array of pastries, croissants (many with different fillings-ham and cheese -delish!), and other yummy goodies. It was a great place for a morning coffee and pastry.

Essencia has the best breakfast and lunch items! Even when you select the healthier choices (and somehow avoid the amazing looking treats in the case!), items are full flavor and delicious!
