First, it would be nice if the layout of this place was redone. All the chairs and tables are located in a very awkward way. Second, they have large selections of cakes and I tried quite a few of them, but wasn't impressed as I thought I'd be. Some of the frosting wasn't real buttercream as I hoped. I could... More

This delightful little cake shop is in the heart of the funky Fremont district in Seattle. It not not be big but it packs a punch with its large selection of fairly priced cakes. I expected the cake slices to cost around $6-7 dollars but I shared a large piece with my sister and it was only $4.50, which is... More

We visited around 8 pm or so on a Thursday evening. Business was brisk. The display case was small and at that time of night only cakes, cheesecakes brownies and cookies remained. Like many spaces in Seattle, it was not air-conditioned. The counter person told us that some of the cakes were "weeping" due to the heat and had to... More

First time here and now in my phone. Really nice selection of cakes such as Chocolate Carmel, Chocolate Raspberry Rhapsody, Bittersweet Hazelnut Cake and many more, all looking wickedly good. As I am allergic to Chocolate I opted for the Lemon-Blueberry cake with a light and smooth white frosting. The cake itself was light with just the right amount of... More

I've been going here for years - though I'm careful not to go too often! Their cakes are incredible. My favorite is the German Chocolate Cake, with the Chocolate White Chocolate Cake a close runner-up. I think they have the German Chocolate Cake only on Thursdays, but no matter what you get, it's bound to be a winner. The prices... More

Looking for a non-chain place for a after dinner slice of cake to celebrate a 19 year old's birthday we found Simply Desserts through the App. Hole in the wall corner bakery with ~12 different cakes available for a slice, think more wedge then slice. Saturday late afternoon, raining out, the line of people never stopped. Texture was superb, moist... More

Simply Desserts is right in the heart of the quirky Seattle neighborhood of Fremont and has flourished for over 25 years serving the best cake in the Pacific Northwest. You can sit and enjoy a slice in the cozy eatery or box it to go. For a place that focuses on cake, you will find a pleasing variety to choose... More

I get my birthday cake here every year and they always get rave reviews. My favorite is the Lemon Coconut cake. It's subtle, dense and creamy. Highly recommended.

After driving by Simply Desserts for years, my yearning for something sweet last night finally coincided with my proximity to this tiny shop. It took awhile to locate a parking place on the street, but I finally found one about five blocks away. When I entered the shop, I took my place in line and struggled to see what goodies... More

We went here for a quick dessert and coffee. The place is very small, only one person manning the counter, as a result a very large line. But the cakes are worth the wait.
