Too many pieces to choose just one!

Beautiful cakes here in the display windows. Tasty and reasonably priced by the slice or whole cake.

We visited Chinatown in Seattle specifically to see the Panama Hotel the setting for the book "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet". While in Chinatown we strolled the streets and passed so many small, mom & pop, Asian restaurants. What made us choose A Piece of Cake Bakery & Café was that we were in the mood for... More

Was passing will visiting Pioneer Square and China Town. Serves hot Chinese food as well as cakes. This is not a fancy posh restaurant, more a local family eatery. Rice, beef and spicy chilly $8. Pork wan-tons and noodles $8. Plenty of food, hot and spicy. Strawberry sponge delicious ($4 a slice).

It was only a year ago that this pastry shop made one of the best Asian pastries & baked buns in Seattle. I used to buy $20+ of pastries and buns almost every other week until couple months ago. Sadly, the current quality is paled in comparison to what it was a year ago. The amount of filling in the... More

We went with a group to have the hot pot soup. It took over 45 minutes to make the soups and almost everyone's was incorrect (either missing items or random non-ordered items tossed in). The rice noodles were more like spaghetti noodles and tasted bland, as did the broth. Also, no one ever checked on us, or gave us a... More

Got an egg tart, a custard bun, and a Sweetheart Cake from them today. Egg tart - meh. Crust was cold, bland, almost similar to a frozen pie crust you get at grocery stores. Egg filling was ok, slightly sweet without eggy-ness. Custard bun - disgusting! The bun was so soggy and moist that it collapsed right after my first... More

This place is amazing!!! The cakes here are always fresh, the tea is always spot on. I have ate here a few times and I love the fruit tart, and I love the strawberry cake. I will stop here all the time when I am in Seattle and its a great place just to sit, eat, relax and enjoy.

I stayed at the Hostel a couple of doors up for a few nights and ate here twice. The cakes are awesome, you can buy slices or whole cakes, they have so many to choose from and they are super cute and delicious. One night I ordered a noodle soup which was good but the next night I ordered a... More

My husband and my inlaws found this little gem while in Seattle. We asked a patron exiting the place if they had more than pastry as we were looking for lunch. Best decision we made that day. I ordered a curry chicken noodle dish. It was nice and hot and very good. Beef brisket noodles, seafood medley noodles, and a... More
