Le Panier's croissants are absolutely delicious - i especially adore the almond croissant. Their breads are also warm and tasty. Lines are usually shorter than Starbucks so if you want a cup of coffee or latte, this is an option.

There is usually a line, but picking up a couple pastries only takes minutes and then you can take them out to the park with a Bay view for breakfast. I had a chocolate/almond croissant and my friend enjoyed her almond croissant. I've never had a dry pastry from Le Panier and the macaroons are amazing too.

We wander down to Le Panier periodically for a good almond croissant, and looking at all of the other pastries, I'd say they are all delicious. I've had some sandwiches there too, and those were yummy. Fresh baked breads and pastries - what could be better?

Great bakery and true to the French baking style. The pain au chocolat and croissants are excellent. Nice place to stop to get a sweet and a cup of coffee.

This bakery smells delightful, looks beautiful, but nothing compares to the taste of the warm baguettes straight from the oven. Often crowded, with the line going out the door, the staff works quickly and efficiently. Don't hesitate to speak French here. Some of the staff are fluent. Fortunately, they have separated lines so, if you are there for the breads... More

Whenever I go to the Pike Place Market I always cross the street and go to Le Panier bakery. Sometimes there's a line but it goes fast. The almond croissants are wonderful. Filled with an almond paste and sliced almonds. Melt in your mouth. The chocolate ones are good also. They have breads and sandwiches and you can get your... More

Everything is delicious. I love their savory as well as their sweet pastries and will buy the savory for lunch and a sweet treat for dessert. I have been coming here for years and it is always busy, but worth the wait. It's just across from the Pike Place Market which is a plus.
