    Macarons are always on point, change daily/seasonally. Their broccoli and cheddar & ham and potato pastries are so delicious. Great coffee but always takes awhile & there's always a line but worth it

    Their croissants are heavenly. In fact don't only get one item, get two. Who knows when a pocket pastry stashed in your purse or jacket will come in handy. The almond chocolate was excellent!

    The Campagne bread tastes very good and is healthier than the baguette. I also tried theraspberry and apricot croissants -- very good, and the mushroom tarte (will take more of those to-go next time).

    Didn't have hope for this since it was located in a touristy area, but as a baker and a person who went to Paris: their almond croissant surpasses the ones in Paris. Amazing.
  • Arminda G.
    Excellent French bakery, get any croissant and you'll be happy. Pair with coffee and get a great start to the day - it gets busy though, so be prepared to wait a bit and fight for a table!

    The Crudités sandwich is delicious, the macaroons are perfect and the croissant are nice and flaky. Sit in the window seat for prime people watching. And expect a touch of attitude when ordering.

    Only ever had macaroons here & never been disappointed. Try-almond, pistachio, caramel, citron, hazelnut. All Excellent. Don't wait in the queue if you only want macaroons. Walk upto the glass case!

    Delicious french pastries, sandwiches made with fresh bread, and great coffee. Located near Pike Place Market, just a few blocks from the Monorail's Westlake Center platform.

    The best croissants in Seattle! I like the plain, Pain au chocolat, & the A la Framboise. The Josephine is yummy too.

    The only thing I didnt like: they put my eclair and crosissants inlittle paper bags, and as a result they got damaged on the way home. I know, I should drive more carefully :)

    Pumpkin friand is really good, and the coffee wonderful. No tourists taking photos until you get up the street to Starbucks. :-)

    My go-to spot @ Pike Place. Stop here for an amazing baguette sandwich (+baked treat, +coffee), but come early- they sell out!

    The Dauphinoise is amazing! Also the chocolate almond croissant (I can't remember the name) is to die for!

    I come here for their meringues (pre-bagged and gorgeous) and their macarons. Of course I wish parking was easier, but this is the market we're talking about!

    The eclairs are the best thing here. The pain chocolat is next. The baguettes aren't that impressive/authentic.
