It looks like they've changed a lot of the interior from 2012, but it was super cute when my friends and I visited. The cupcakes are awesome! Often times, cupcake places will have sickeningly sweet icing, but Yellow Leaf had a great balance in both the icing and the cake.

Walked by this place on 4th between Bell and Blanchard on our way to the Space Needle. We were in the middle of breakfast and lunch. So we stopped in for a snack. For a small place it was packed with a Foodie Group on a tour. While the manager was giving them a talk about the place we checked... More

visited as part of gourmet food tour and were so impressed we returned next day. The bacon and maple pancake cupcakes are amazing. Very friendly service and awesome cupcakes. Will be back to check out the macaroons before we depart Seattle. (And as a bonus, Mike is a Eurovision fan!!)

We searched for this place to try the Macarons -- they were great. I wish we had tried the Cupcakes - they also looked amazing. It was a little hard to find but worth it!

Salted caramel, pancake and bacon. OMG they were delicious, moist and fun. Loved the place. The atmosphere was great, the staff was super friendly and they had some cool art in the walls.

I ordered a delivery for a special someone's birthday and not only did I get word the cupcakes themselves were amazing, they customer service provided through the phone was also amazing from Mike. Love the fact that there are unique flavors and that they rotate. I definitely will be dropping by in person on my next trip to Seattle!! Yum!

I love cupcakes, and this cafe certainly has a great selection. I had the strawberry cheesecake cupcake and it was amazing! We also ordered some macaroons, which were just as amazing as the cupcake (and good macaroons are hard to find!). The flavors of macaroons and cupcakes are unique (I have never seen a birthday cake macaroon before!) and super... More

Delicious cup cakes, beautiful to look at and warm service! The location is very "cool", trendy music. I read a review on Town and Country long ago...the reviewer got it right! Treat yourself!

Some great cup cakes with some really unusual recipes. Try the bacon and jalupino crunch - wow. Call for a coffee and a cake or buy a box - you wont be disappointed.
