Stopped here to grab some breakfast and snacks for the airplane. Very good pastries. The blueberry lemon croissant was so flaky and fresh. Not too sweet with a almond filling under the lemon curd. Amazing! Grabbed turkey and havarti sandwiches to eat on the plane....More

This is one of the best bakeries in Seattle! They have two locations that I know of, Capital Hill and West Seattle. The West Seattle location is very small and gets crowded quickly, but there is additional seating outside the cafe. Recommendations would be their...More

I would go early to have an espresso and one of their quiches or an almond croissant and take home bread or other pastries. They are located on California Ave. in West Seattle, and on 15th Ave. E. on Capitol Hill. Whenever I'm around either...More

Everything at Bakery Nouveau is delicious, but I especially love the spinach and feta tarts and the veggie sandwich. Both are super tasty, but also have vegetables so you can pretend you're eating something slightly healthy.

So many good things here to eat. Great shops along this stretch of California Ave, things to do close by and on the way to the Vashon Island ferry.

Love this place- wish we had a bakery like this in Tacoma/Gig Harbor. But then I'd weigh a million pounds! Everything is spot on. The best is the twice baked almond croissants and the junction croissant. The macarons are incredible too!

Unbelievable pastries, big and luscious. Great coffee. Sandwiches and pizza do not disappoint. Simply irresistible.

Just look for the line out the door. Small inside but worth the wait and coziness. Share a table with someone and make friends. Everything is delicious and you'll wish you bought some for later.

If you order and pay ahead of time, you do not have to wait in a very long line. Pre-ordered pastries have no waiting lines. Just walk in and pick them up. Just a helpful hint but not a question. Is this a true statement

Yes, you must order 48 hours in advance but you can still go to the head of the line and in the front door to pick up your order.

West Seattle is very dog friendly - there are cafe tables outside of Bakery Nouveau so if you are with someone, one could go in and order while the other takes his/her turn dogsitting. Alki Beach, as someone above... More
