The croissants are the best in Seattle!!!

I also thought this was for the Capitol Hill location. Nonetheless, The croissant sandwiches are fabulous and the location beats going to West Seattle any day. Yum Yum

The best pastries ever. Wear comfortable shoes because it's always a long line. The quiche is also quite good. Everything is good. Go. There's one on Capitol Hill on 15th across from the Safeway, too.

The croissants are what took me to the Capitol Hill Bakery Nouveau - much closer to me than West Seattle. Had lunch there and the sandwich selection was fabulous - each one tempted the taste buds. I am a complete pushover for good baked goods and my lunch visit fulfilled my desire for delicious sandwiches. Plus my carry out croissants... More

Nouveau Bakery has great bread, pastries and chocolates. We especially like their twice baked croissants and baguettes. Their selection of baked goodies and sandwiches is good and we have never been disappointed with any of their products. Note, they are a price a little higher than some bakeries but we always feel that the quality is good value.

Well, I wish they would add a location in Edmonds!!!!! The perfect mix of sweet and savory!!! Lovely gifts for take away wrapped exquisitely. The bread tastes like France, the macaroons come in a rainbow of colors and favors. You are happy once you enter and breathe the air.

When you arrive your nose will tell you everything you need to know--and it will have time to do so as you wait in line in this deservedly wonderful bakery. A little while later you'll be able to see the counter cases filled with beautiful and delicious baked goods--but the twice baked croissant is their masterpiece and must not be... More

Long lines but worth the wait. French baguette as good as Paris. Pear tarts are wonderful as well as the twice bake croissants

Wonderful neighborhood bakery with beverages and seating to enjoy your purchases. They have some lunch items as well, but it is the baked items that tickle my fancy. The twice backed almond croissants are amazing (my favorite), the pizza rolls are so-so, everything else I have tried have been wonderful. Price is a bit high, but not so much when... More

If you like french pastries put this one on your must go list. Special items include twice-baked croissants, chocolate bread (not really bread a slice of yummy cake) and both fruit and savory tarts. Excellent coffee, sandwiches, and pizza as well.
