I know there are plenty of bakeries, shops, local chains, and super sized wedding cake places that throw their names around- even shove mini sized morsels of samples in your face as you wander around Seattle. They're great. They're completely fine. But, if you want perfection, that cupcake you wish you could be buried inside of so you could eat... More

What a lovely place! The assortment of cup cakes were amazing. Coffee and tea were available. Not only can you get various sizes of cupcakes but cakes were available. While we were there a lady came in to pick up a small appropriately sized cake for her two year old's birthday. Just perfect. It is very small, limited seating inside... More

I for one am not a sweets person, however the Yellow Leaf tempts me. They have an array of cupcakes that are not your usual run of the mill Betty Crocker type. The flavors are wonderful, this trip I fell in love with the Boston Cream Pie cupcake. Yum-O!!!! You can eat in or take go.

After reviewing some of the reviews we decided to stop here. We got there in the late afternoon and all the cupcakes were 40% off. We had a variety of cupcakes for our group of four. Red Velvet, pancake and bacon, Mexican cookie, Belgian chocolate, lemon cream and chocolate chip cuppie. The only one we didn't live was the Mexican... More

Had a yummy egg breakfast sandwich. Savory and nice after taste. Fun environment and friendly staff. Even picked up a peanut butter cookie for later.

So many cupcake flavors and macaroons. By far the tastiest of them all was the pancakes and bacon cupcake. The taste was spot on. The staff was super sweet and the decor rocked.

We had to get cupcakes from this place every time we visited Seattle. They were really delicious. The cake was very moist and the frosting was delicious and not too sweet. Great combination of flavors. Wish we had this place where we live. Highly recommend this place. It is better than another cupcake shop near Pike place market.

Stopped by for a cup cake treat. The cake tasted burnt and the frosting was terrible. I felt sick for hours afterwards. I do not recommend stopping at this business.

Not sure what all the hype is about. Decent food, no better or worse then many other places I've been. Friendly staff. Go early (before lunch at least) if you want the pancake bacon cupcakes.

Get the cheddar square. I mean it. Do it. Crusty cheese top, soft biscuit and buttery. I've never had anything quite like this delicious cheese bread. The staff was lovely. Go early for the famous pancake and bacon cupcake. Delightful little shop.

Thank Linda S
