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.

They just opened in Burien and it is officially our go to bakery! Croisants that melt in your mouth, pound cake thats incredibly moist, sandwiches, cookies, chocolates, cakes, coffee, they have it all! Now if they were only opened 24/7...:-)

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.

Nothing not to love about this bakery except maybe the sometimes long lines and a smaller eating space. The goat cheese and mushroom quiche is one of my favorites, as well as the scones and olive fougasse

I love coming here for the almond croissants but they also have many other things I enjoy as well. You can always depend on quality and service walking in here.

Superb local bakery with wonderful sweets and sandwiches. Seating is tight and there’s always a line but it’s worth the wait!

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
