“Only The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Every visit to Seattle we start our mornings with the best croissants in the County and maybe the world!! I love the plain croissants. But also enjoy a fruit pastry and this trip enjoyed the Cherry Vanilla croissant! Always grab a loaf of bread to take home! Don't forget to get a macaroon or a chocolate as a treat! The pastry case is beautiful and so inviting! Staff is quick friendly and helpful with choices. Fun to get a peak in the back where all the baking magic happens!!

“The absolute very best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a fanstastic place for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. They have sandwiches, bread, and all kinds of sweets. The chocolate croissants that are still hot, and are to die for..... This is a very small place -- there are about 6 small tables. As a result, you can count on a line and on busy days a line out the door. The croissants are as good as you would get in France, and saves you the airfare..... I live too close to this place and it can become a habit. I'm not a coffee drinker, but they have Coke products and tea. This place is in West Seattle right in the Alaska Junction (on California Avenue just west of Alaska St). There is parking in front, which can be difficult on a weekend. There are lots behind the building, and a pass through between one building (next to NW Art and Frame).

“Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a great little place. I wouldn't recommend the coffee, but the baked goods are amazing! We tried a breakfast croissant, which was great and a chocolate croissant.

“The best Croissants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This is a small bakery, but so worth the wait in line. This time we had an almond croissant and a Ham and Cheese Croissant. They were both flaky and delicious!. Had a cup of coffee each to have with our pastries. What a cute place, and busy! As we sat having our breakfast, we kept looking at their so cute little mini cakes so bought one to have later. It was delicious also. About enough for 2 to share it.

“Amazing baked goods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Almond croissant. Order it. If you are skeptical, just order it, it will change your life! Quiche is also amazing, you really can't go wrong here!
