Bakery Nouveau is without a real rival, if you're looking for an authentic French bakery with a bit of an American twist. There is so much to try. The food is excellent and the service is always very good.

This very cramped ( typical for Capital Hill) eatery is a gem. Favorite among locals. Too bad we could only have one meal there. There were so many good things to choose from.

Cinnamon rolls were great....twice baked anything was delish. The California croissant sandwich was a nice lunch option. I can see why they are number one. They do a nice job with all their pastries.

One of the best pastries, sandwiches, and bread I have had in a while I ordered an almond chocolate croissant and it was scrumptious. I also ordered caramel apple tart and it was ordinary. My visit here was pleasant. I will definitely visit again here....More

Who knew pastry could be a scenic experience?! It’s a very beautiful shop with more choices than you can handle. We only tried pastry’s this time and loved it. Seating is fairly limited.

Bakery Nouveau is THE bakery in Seattle. This location was the first. It's small and gets really busy on the weekends. The baked goods and sandwiches are the best. They now have their own chocolate bars.

We live closer to the new store in Burien. Much larger but still comfy. You must try the twice baked almond croissant. Great food great people.

'Nuf said. Any of the baked goods: twice-baked almond - way two thumbs up. Quiche - great. Sandwiches - great. Often crowded, sometimes hard to find a seat, ordering moves pretty quickly despite the sometimes long lines.

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
