CHocolate, Chocolat and More Chocolate

I have no real love of carrot cake. I mean, why bother? But these guys do carrot cake that's worth eating. Of course, there's all the variations on chocolate, so who needs carrot cake?

On any given day they have some five or six special cakes other than standard ones. Their Orange, Blue Berry and Strawberry cakes are outstanding. Do not wait .Go for it.

Hands down the best place for cake in Seattle! A slice of cake is large enough to share, but trust me you'll want your own! On any given day they have a selection of 7 - 10 cakes, from chocolate amaretto to white chocolate strawberry (my favorite). Their cakes are pretty dense and moist...and delicious. They also have brownies, cupcakes,... More

The only cakes that she wanted were from Simply Desserts in the Fremont area of Seattle. I guess we might have made a mistake when we introduced her to 5 or 6 different kinds of cake from their wonderful little bakery years ago. My husband and I would always stop by for a couple of pieces to go, and we... More

We stopped by this small bakery by mistake, as we were going to take the tour at the Theo Chocolate Factory in the Fremont district, but the tour was full. We then walked around the corner and found this delightful place with the perfect bakery smell. They have a couple of places to sit to and they make all of... More

I am a huge dessert fan and have had more than my fair share of desserts in my life time. I am particularly drawn to cake and cupcakes, so Simply Desserts has a lot of appeal to me as they primarily have cakes. They typically also have a pie or two, or some cookies as well, but cakes are their... More

Heading home after a Mexican dinner last evening, we saw Simply Desserts and it just called out to us for something deliciously sweet, and for some coffee. After driving around for a bit trying to find parking in Freemont, we finally found a spot and walked the short distance to this tiny desserts restaurant. Both of us were disappointed in... More

I’ve never had anything mediocre at Simply Desserts, their cakes always rank in the category of superb-fantastic-amazing-etc. Their small space is located right in the heart of Fremont, and you can buy by the slice or order a whole cake. Everything is delicious, but I love the blueberry lemon cake best. My full review: http://sweettoothinseattle.com/2011/07/17/simply-desserts/

We stopped off here for my birthday and they were just bringing a fresh white chocolate strawberry cake out to display. Needless to say, that's the one I chose. We took two pieces to go since we had just finished dinner at a nearby restaurant. Later, when we ate the cake, it was amazing! Better than any cake I had... More
