This little crumpet bakery down near Pike St Market serves freshly made crumpets - they are delicious. You can have them any way you like - savoury toppings or with home made jams. And their coffee is pretty fine too ( coming from Melbourne, the home of latte). You can also sit & watch them being made via a glassed... More

We had to come to Seattle and find a Crumpet shop. Never having been to one in England. It was superb which meant we had to come at the beginning of our holiday and at the end. I have tried three different crumpets with toppings and my wife two. She is stuck on Maple butter and she says its to... More

Stumbled upon this little treasure during my stay in Seattle. The crumpets were awesome. Great variety of teas. I had the Irish Breakfast. And tea refills are unlimited!!

In Seattle for business, my colleague recommended that we have breakfast at the Crumpet. He's been there before and upon the first bit I was convinced to return again for breakfast the next day. We tried savory and sweet options: Tomato, pesto & English cheese; Salmon cream cheese & cucumber; Ricotta with rasberry jam and Nutella on ricotta cheese. All... More

We found this little gem tucked away near Pike's Place. With an empty stomach and small budget we were pleased with the amazing and affordable, not to mention, completely original eatery! The crumpets were amazing and the ingredients taste so fresh! The ham and egg with peppers was happiness in my mouth. The salmon cream cheese was very...salmon-y but I... More

We knew this place would be great when we saw the long line, so we joined the queue and had no trouble with the wait. In fact I used the whole time we waited to determine which of the crumpet concoctions to try! We split one savory (tomato/egg/cheese) and one sweet (lemon curd and ricotta) crumpet and it made for...

This shop is tiny & very popular but has earned it in spades. Crumpets are fresh from the oven, light & fluffy with a huge variety of savory & sweet toppings. Extremely efficient & excellent teas & coffee too but very few tables & seats.

I had the egg, ham and cheese crumpet and it was delicious! I also got a mug of bottomless tea and they offered me a to go cup when we were leaving to refill. The place is small but it doesn't take people long to eat so we were able to get a counter seat. The staff were very friendly... More

They had the best crumpet I have had in my life! I got a basic crumpet with butter and lemon curd. The crumpet was warm, soft, with a crunchy bottom and the lemon curd was slightly tart but not too tart and just the right amount. I was in comfort food heaven! My husband got the peso and tomato one... More

We ate lunch here during a brief stay--our first time--in Seattle. Our hotel was right around the corner. So, that made it easy and accessible. Plus, it just sounded too charming not to try. The shop itself is very small, crowded, and there is limited seating. That said, we were able to grab a couple seats at the bar--even on... More
