If you are going to be nearby, definitely make this a stop. The almond croissant has reset my expectations, it’s amazing! As is everything else I have tried.

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
