This is sort of "piling on" with the glowing reviews, but there's a reason Macrina has been written about by national and international media for years - its exceptional baking. We've eaten at legends like Sullivan Street Bakery in NYC, various spots in Paris and the amazing Patisserie Lebeau in Vancouver, and Macrina is at least their equal. The plum... More

I've been told by many that one of Seattle's gems is the Macrina Bakery. So, after 4 years of living here I finally got to see if this place lives up to the hype. Similar to Seattlelites thinking that Dick's makes the best hamburgers and that Ezell's has the best fried chicken, once again I've concluded that its just all... More

I love their decor. It is not institutional like SBUX and the way they arrange the lighting and the arts bring life to this place. They have different assortments of bread and pastry, a perfect place for a family of sweet tooth.

Came here for breakfast after reading the positive reviews on tripadvisor. I enjoyed a healthy and tasty breakfast. The yoghurt parfait was great. The place is nice and clean. I'm sure I'll be back.

We happened to rent a condo over the top of Macrina in Belltown. One of the things we noticed that it was busy whether it was 7am (breakfast rush) or later in the afternoon. We visited several times. We went for breakfast. My wife got a yogurt parfait which was huge and contained a ton of berries. I got the... More

I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order here. Great Bakery and Wonderful Breakfasts. Cozy place to have a pastry with coffee or full on breakfast. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Love This Little Gem....More that one location too so check out the website for the closest to you in the city.

Super fabulous bakery next door to our Airbnb! Get the RolyPoly and the quiche. But you can't go there every day or you will turn into a RolyPoly. Great service, great coffee, and great food. A local Seattle favourite in Belltown.

And the problem is that I will continue to gain weight eating this bread almost daily... good selection and service - we seem to gravitate towards the Giuseppe and Bâtard. We are cutting back on getting only one loaf at a time. They offer a great selection - Olivetta, Brioche, Rustic Potato, Fresh Herb Baguette to name a few. they... More

This bakery is on the same block as the VRBO we're staying in during our visit to Seattle and the aroma as well as the prep room windows caught our attention on passes we made while on the way to other spots in town. Tried it out for breakfast and it's even better on the inside. Lots of hot coffee,... More

Went here a couple of times for takeaway and coffee. Everything was delicious, no matter whether the sweet or the savory baked goods and the selection of bread is extraordinary. You can even watch the staff baking everything fresh next door from the windows outside. Nothing but recommended.
