They come boxed perfectly for presentation, even include a cake cutter and candles. Perfect for office Birthdays. Very light and not too sweet. Fruit is always fresh and tasty. Easy to visit while having a meal at the Pal Do World food courte or doing some grocery shopping.

Awesome cakes!!!!! Fresh, delectable and beautifully made. I buy all family birthday cakes from this spot even though you can't really decorate them. They are already beautiful and so tasty and my children look forward to them.

Boulangerie is a Franco-Korean bakery located in the Pal Do shopping complex, and one of the best bakeries in Tacoma.

If you need a cake for adults, their cakes topped with glazed fruits are one of the BEST options in the city. Flavors include strawberry, vanilla, mocha and green tea. Prices are excellent: small cakes that serve about 6-8 are just over $20, and they pack the cakes in beautiful, handled boxes with a plastic cake cutting knife. They'll ask if you need candles, and how many, and that is included in the price.

You will find traditional Franco-Asian prepared pastries here: macaroons, pastries filled with chestnut, bean paste or cream, sugar cookies. Example of sugar cookies here: pink shortbread with real cherry bits speckled throughout, a classic icebox-type chocolate & plain cookie in a square checkerboard design (great for a tea party), and palmiers.

I wish they offered things like apple filled croissant or even plain croissant - but ultimately I respect that Boulangerie stays true to the Asian aesthetic and the things you find in these types of bakeries in Korea, Japan or China. (This really points to the lack of a proper traditional French bakery in Tacoma)

Lastly, I must tip my hat to their sandwiches. They have the type of sandwiches one sees in a fusion bakery of this kind: egg salad, ham, sometimes tuna salad - heavy on the Kempie-style mayo - on delicious egg bread. Again, very reasonable at about $5 or less for a whole sandwich. They're in a fridge by the register and often sell out.

This is not a place to eat in - it's a bakery with no tables. You have to take your treats somewhere else.
