We stopped in Saturday morning for a coffee and crumpet. So good. I could have eaten ten crumpets! Light moist and slathered with a perfect jam. We munched as we walked down to Pike Place Market and washed it down with some fab organic coffee. Highly recommend.

A crumpet may be an unlikely treat to have in the Pacific Northwest, but if you've never been to England to indulge then why not? The Crumpet Shop does the traditional toasted crumpet with melted butter and topped with honey and have created their own replacement for nutella (think palm oil harvest and its ill effects on orang-utans). They specialize... More

My 11 year old daughter and I had never had a crumpet and decided to stop here for breakfast. Its a typical coffee house style set up, the place is very small and cluttered up. The Crumpets were so good, we were surprised how much we liked them! If you are looking for a quick easy breakfast or snack, this... More

Frankly, I had no idea what a crumpet was when I went here. Our friend recommended this place. Lots of different crumpets to choose from. Very near the Public Market (Pike Place area). Some outside seating.

We could not Love this place more. Fronting the tourist mecca of Pike Place Market, this delicious slice of heaven is for anyone wanting an authentic British crumpet and a lovely cuppa tea. Lemon curd is a family favorite as is the Micky Rouke! A nice selection of teas and if you need a top up, they do stock impoted... More

I walked down to the Crumpet Shop with my daughter. She wanted to try one. All the crumpets are made on site. They have a wide assortment of toppings for them. I wasn't hungry and I wasn't sold on the idea of crumpets so my daughter ordered hers. It was a ricotta & raspberry I believe. I was under the... More

My wife and I had a nice quick breakfast at the Crumpet Shop. The crumpet was very good as well as my tea latte. The service was a little stale. Maybe because it's a tourist area, but get a personality. The line seems to move along, but there can be a long line and seating is very limited.

This place was hopping when I arrived. Crumpets are a superior version of our English Muffins, and there's really no comparison, especially with the toppings offered at the Crumpet Shop. Wild smoked salmon spread was excellent, but the maple butter was off the charts incredible. Almost like frosting... Must have.
