“Don't miss this French pastry gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We only had a couple of hours to visit the Pike Place Market and stopped at Le Panier for breakfast. Best decision of the day! Their chocolate and almond croissant was the best ever. The croissant and hot chocolate were the perfect beginning of a lovely day in Seattle. Don't pass this place up.

“perfect croissants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

The most convincing croissants and other viennoiserie that I have eaten outside France. One day we took out, very early, and the second we ate in. Very busy on the second morning, so the coffees took a long time, and there is no table service, so it's a long wait before one can sit down. Good atmosphere, and rapid turnover of customers. Would be great for people-watching in the summer, but the windows were steamed up in the winter.

“Echoes of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

As long-time Seattlites we're always amazed at how much our fellow locals fail to appreciate the magic of the Market -- and jewels like Le Panier. The croissants and breads could hold their own against anything we've ever had in France. We come at least once a week for bread, usually supplemented by their wonderful desert tartes or macaroons for a last course. It's also wonderful to come for a breakfast espresso and croissant -- the market is mystical on winter weekdays before 8 am -- lots and lots of parking -- and you can watch the day begin over a cappuccino and croissant or savory.

“Fantastic Boulangerie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The best Boulangerie I've tasted outside of Paris and New York. My friends brought me here on a quick day long layover in Seattle... a must for any foodie tour of Seattle.

“A must stop spot when visiting Seattle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We always stop here for fresh bread when visiting Seattle. They have wonderful almond croissants, and super tasty baguette sandwiches. We stopped by for pastries and coffee for breakfast. They were tasty, quick and we were lucky to find a place to sit.
