We visited around 8 pm or so on a Thursday evening. Business was brisk. The display case was small and at that time of night only cakes, cheesecakes brownies and cookies remained. Like many spaces in Seattle, it was not air-conditioned. The counter person told us that some of the cakes were "weeping" due to the heat and had to... More

First time here and now in my phone. Really nice selection of cakes such as Chocolate Carmel, Chocolate Raspberry Rhapsody, Bittersweet Hazelnut Cake and many more, all looking wickedly good. As I am allergic to Chocolate I opted for the Lemon-Blueberry cake with a light and smooth white frosting. The cake itself was light with just the right amount of... More

I've been going here for years - though I'm careful not to go too often! Their cakes are incredible. My favorite is the German Chocolate Cake, with the Chocolate White Chocolate Cake a close runner-up. I think they have the German Chocolate Cake only on Thursdays, but no matter what you get, it's bound to be a winner. The prices... More

Looking for a non-chain place for a after dinner slice of cake to celebrate a 19 year old's birthday we found Simply Desserts through the App. Hole in the wall corner bakery with ~12 different cakes available for a slice, think more wedge then slice. Saturday late afternoon, raining out, the line of people never stopped. Texture was superb, moist... More

Simply Desserts is right in the heart of the quirky Seattle neighborhood of Fremont and has flourished for over 25 years serving the best cake in the Pacific Northwest. You can sit and enjoy a slice in the cozy eatery or box it to go. For a place that focuses on cake, you will find a pleasing variety to choose... More

I get my birthday cake here every year and they always get rave reviews. My favorite is the Lemon Coconut cake. It's subtle, dense and creamy. Highly recommended.

After driving by Simply Desserts for years, my yearning for something sweet last night finally coincided with my proximity to this tiny shop. It took awhile to locate a parking place on the street, but I finally found one about five blocks away. When I entered the shop, I took my place in line and struggled to see what goodies... More

We went here for a quick dessert and coffee. The place is very small, only one person manning the counter, as a result a very large line. But the cakes are worth the wait.

Nice collection of chocolate cakes to choose from. We tried Bittersweet Hazelnut and it was good. I think we will visit again.

I have no real love of carrot cake. I mean, why bother? But these guys do carrot cake that's worth eating. Of course, there's all the variations on chocolate, so who needs carrot cake?
