Baked Goodness!

A must for every resident, College newcomer or passerby! The Downtowner is amazing! Reasonably priced, warm and fresh. Able to call ahead for large order. Open very early so you can stop before work

The pastries here are yummy - they're made with real ingredients, with no corners cut. But that quality is also VERY expensive! The cost is higher than many Seattle bakeries, more like New York City! Even the bottled tea starts at $2.50 for a 1/2 liter bottle... But apparently locals don't mind.

This is hands down the best bakery in town. You will need to get in early or risk finding your favorite item sold out.

Vinman's is a great bakery. Surprisingly, I got some of the best rye bread I've tasted at this little gem. Plus they have an excellent choice of wines and artisan cheese.

Vinman's cranks out a nice assortment of great breads and pastries fresh every day. It's small, locally-owned, and tucked away in a strip mall across from the CWU campus. This bakery would have a line out the door in the downtown of any big city.

There's no place to sit here. It's strictly a to-go operation. But everything is good. Fresh baked bread and pastries that are worthy of special occasions.

Home made bread, baked daily with a lot of varieties. Excellent crostinis, goat cheeses spread. Their almond pastries and desserts and excellent. They have croissants, including chocolate and rasberry, They also sell a few wines and even some dog biscuits that my puppies love! I would go every day except they are closed on Mondays.

The many and changing daily breads are wonderful, as are the not-too-sweet classic pastries, cookies, brioches, banbury buns, cinnamon rolls, lemon bars, and many other wonders, all hidden in an unpretentious strip mall right across the street from the campus.
