PB whoopie pies!!!

If you love peanut butter cookies, you have to stop at yellow leaf cupcake for PB whoopie pies. Two homemade peanut butter cookies with chocolate ganache and chocolate butter cream frosting in the middle. They were to die for! We went every day.

If you have a sweet tooth or you just need coffee, GO HERE! All of their treats are amazing, especially the homemade s'more! We interacted with three people here on our multiple trips earlier this week. Each of them was particularly helpful and charming. The thoughtful design and attention to detail are much appreciated!

Everything is organinc and made from scratch at the small cafe. You will taste cupcakes of beautiful taste made the ingridients you will not guess unless you try and hear them explain is an stravagant expirience.

Holy smokes!! Probably hands down the best cupcakes & macaroons I've ever had. Dang!!!! The Pride macaroon & Cherry Chocolate cupcake were my fav. Friends loved the lemon macaroon & vanilla cupcake. I also enjoyed the Happy Iced Tea! The owner was on site & we had a darling conversation about all things cupcakes. Believe me. GO! It's so good... More

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.
