Slow, but good cake

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... read more

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

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

Andrew Zimmerman was right - they're addictive. My husband complained about it, as he kept drinking half of my bubble tea (Lychee) and now, he wants to go back there.:-) Me too!

Be careful to deal with A Piece of Cake! My friends! I am so mad about the boss Mike. Because of my friend's recommendation, I went there to make an assessment about design and specs of the cake. Then I asked him to write down his name and price. Today I called to order, he told me that I needed... More

Do you like pastry? Cookies? Excellent coffee? Then don't miss this bakery. It is a classic Seattle International District fixture, with a wide selection of both Western and Asian sweets. And good coffee. We had a wonderful stop there recently for really fabulous almond cookies and black coffee. Enjoy.
