stephmodo: Bakery Nouveau

Bakery Nouveau

• 31 May 2008

When visiting an unfamiliar city, we typically rely on Zagat to show us the way. Bakery Nouveau is #1 in Seattle, rated a 28 in the food category, and we know just why after gorging ourselves two days in a row at this authentic French patisserie. The fact that the head pastry chef won "Best Baker in the World" at a French competition should give you some idea regarding his culinary capabilities. In fact, the chocolate almond croissant was better than many I've eaten in Paris. If you are heading to Seattle soon, make it a point to stop by. Your tummy will thank you...maybe not so much other body parts (like the ones that seem to enjoy tacking on cellulite)...but do it anyway :)

While in West Seattle, stop by Alki Beach for a walk along the shore and then to Sunfish for tasty fish n' chips. One block down from Bakery Nouveau is another Cupcake Royale location, and a fun paperie called Swee Swee. I found some beautiful letterpressed cards by Binth marked down to pennies each.


  1. This sounds delicious!! If we're ever in Seattle, we'll have to try it. We discovered an argentinian gelato place last week that you will love--Dolcezza-- we'll go when you guys are out here on your way to Europe! Miss you!

  2. Don't ya just LOVE Seattle! I miss it so much!!! I've been to all those places and they are all treasures. Glad you had fun!

  3. I live in Seattle and have never been here. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to check it out.

  4. love your comments on Seattle. My husband and I are spending our 1st anniversary there over memorial day weekend and would love some additional suggestions on site and eats!

    Thanks and love your blog,

  5. Hey Anon,

    We love Discovery Park for a pretty walk, Cupcake Royale for a little treat before heading to the locks, and the Pike Place Market. Buy some honey from Moon Valley while you are there. It's the best honey I've ever had!

  6. West Seattle is quite possibly one of my favorite places. I have a distinct feeling my husband and I will live in the Alki area soon.


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
