This place frequently has a line to the door which gives you plenty of time to drool over its macaroons, quiches, and french pastries galore! double baked almond is my favorite. I usually get it to go since there is limited table space.

Best bakery in Seattle. Both savories and sweets are outstaning. So are the breads. Double baked almond and chocolate croissants are to die for.

Everything that I have purchased here are excellent. Love their quiches, croissants, sandwiches, cakes, shortbread. Great service and the quality is second to none.

We moved to downtown Seattle but still drive over to West Seattle on Sundays to pick up the ham and cheese baguette and to pick up some bread. And don't pass up the almond croissant or the sausage and cheese breakfast biscuit. Yum!

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
