We went here to get a loaf of bread. The place was so crowded you could not move. We ended getting our bread, croissants rolls and ended up with a lovely Copenhagen. Enjoyed the atmosphere immensly

Swing through and grab something sweet, or savory. This place is operated like a starbucks which I mean in a good way. Fast friendly service with a smile. Favorite of all is there "kugelhpof" sweet soft dough like doughnut.

This place lives up to the hype. I checked a back on my flight back so I could carry-on a giant box stuffed with 20 croissants and other pastries. I visit an office in West Seattle 4-5 times per year so Bakery Nouveau is a daily stop.

The place is a small bakery but the quality of the place can be judged by the huge crowd at the place. It may not be a best place to actually sit down and have your food as they have limited space so it better to go for takeout. The place serves some of the best croissants I have had.

It's a long trip to California Street from where I live but well worth it. This is the best French bakery in Seattle; beautiful food as well as outstanding. There is rarely room to actually eat here; plan on takeout. Lines go fast.

I go to France regularly and can't tell the difference between these pastries and the ones in Paris. Wipe off your own table. The place is so busy they don't have time clean up.
