Gluten-free not left out in the cold!

I thought that renting a condo above the Macrina bakery would be heaven for my family but torture for me, as I'm currently on a gluten-free diet.

We had Sunday brunch at the Macrina and it was delicious. Because of its proximity to our hotel, we picked up baked goods for breakfast a couple of days, too. Very tasty and reasonably priced.

After walking around downtown, Pike Place, napping on the lawn, we headed back towards our hotel in Belltown and wanted a treat. Macrina had a great selection of bakery items. I had the plum roll which was sweet and different and hit the spot. They have decent seating, but we just took our items to go and walked around some... More

We visited Macrina on a Saturday morning and it was very busy. The pastries were delicious and orange juice even better. I had the yogurt and granola and was happy to have a healthier option. The kids got pastries and ate them all! When they are busy, they need to have clear places for patrons to stand and explain more... More

As I sat enjoying my 'Market Special' at the Belltown's Macrina Bakery on Saturday, I realized that I've never posted a review on one of my neighborhood favorites. I take for granted the amazing breads, pastries and baked fare that I grab on the go during the week. And the Saturday/Sunday Brunch always amazes! A visit to one of their... More

Our family loves all the Macrina bakeries in Seattle. But we started here, on 1st Avenue in Belltown. The bread is excellent and varied, including wonderful pastries you can eat in the cafe on site. Here and at the other location on 1st near Safeco Field (Mariners) and CenturyLink Field (Seahawks) you can watch them make bread and pastries in... More

We stayed a few blocks from the Belltown Macrina Bakery and we ate there every morning of our trip. They have an excellent selection of baked goods and coffees. They also serve lunch. There is a line in the mornings, it is popular! But we never had an issue finding a table for two. The apple turnovers are exceptional! The... More

We were on vacation and stayed in the apartments above the bakery – Oh My Heavenly Goodness!! This place is fabulous! It was all we could do to not eat something from there EVERY day! We wish we had one near us at home – on the other hand, it’s a good thing we don’t! Super YUM!!

This bakery has a great selection of yummy pastries. They make delish coffee, although they only carry chocolate and vanilla (my husband is a hazelnut fan). will be back

Instead of sitting inside for brunch, we got a couple of sandwiches to go and ate at one of their sidewalk tables. Sandwiches were excellent.
