I can always count on their quality to impress. I have served a variety of the parties for baby showers and brunches and the cakes are a must for dinner parties or special birthday celebrations! Also good if you just want a treat for yourself....More

Such a great neighborhood bakery. I haven't had a thing I haven't liked. The twice baked chocolate croissant is killer - My absolute favorite. Can get busy but that speaks to the product.

... that is anything but horrible. The 1 star is just to get your attention. Bakery Nouveau may be the best bakery I've ever visited... and sadly that is the problem. Hoping a one star will help keep the lines from forming out the front...More

the pastries are wonderful but this is a tiny tiny shop front so the line always seems to be out the door and down the block and they are often eaten out of most everything by the time I wander over the half mile...with that...More

Open the door and you know you've hit it rich - display cases filled with YUM; double baked almond croissants (my favorite), savories, sweets - fill boxes, you'll be so happy you did.

Best croissant outside of Paris! Everything they sell is absolutely delicious. I ordered a carrot cake for a graduation party and it was the best carrot cake we've ever had.

The most amazing croissants and pastries. Their pizza and sandwiches are great too. Don't be scared by the line out the door, it moves quickly. The only downfall is very limited seating.

The only difference between this place and a village boulangerie in France is…air fare. Save your money and get to W. Seattle.

Yes, you must order 48 hours in advance but you can still go to the head of the line and in the front door to pick up your order.

West Seattle is very dog friendly - there are cafe tables outside of Bakery Nouveau so if you are with someone, one could go in and order while the other takes his/her turn dogsitting. Alki Beach, as someone above... More
