Amazing and delicious baked items, French styled pastries and charming atmosphere, limited space for seating but take it to go, you will love the pastries, breads and sandwiches.

I hit this place up for a pastry about once a week. Probably not the best health choice, but it just so darn good. The Double-Baked Almond Croissant is amazing. A little crunch on the outside and soft dough and light filling on the inside....More

Rich, creamy, not too sweet- a perfect mocha. And my husband had the flakiest well-crafted pastry. I know what I'm getting next time! Wonderful stop near Kaiser hospital.

The food here is amazing. Always. Coffee is decent. Everything is a little more expensive than it should be and the staff are never really friendly. Go for the croissants not the atmosphere.

The people are friendly and the food is always fresh. It's so busy the food turns over often especially in the morning they sell out of whole trays of food, but they'll have another fresh tray ready to replace it.

Bakery Nouveau is the best French bakery in Seattle and now has a beautiful space in downtown Burien, 7 minutes from SeaTac airport. Pastries are light, fresh and made on site. Savory or sweet, cakes or tarts, sandwiches, coffee there isn’t a more welcoming place...More

Excellent bakery goods but pricey. Be prepared to wait in-line and limited seating occupied by yuppies, yoga pant moms and foodies. Get to-go instead.

The best almond croissant you will ever have is at Bakery Nouveau. Crisp, lots of freshly ground almond filling. Covered with chopped almonds over the top and then baked a second time. Beyond flaky.

I've been here dozens of times and always am impressed. Their fancy desserts are beautiful and delish.

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
