We had the egg tomato on crumpet and egg ham on crumpet. Also their house brewed chia tea which was amazing. Good portion for breakfast and so good we considered getting seconds. Would be great as a snack spot too.

I had a crumpet with butter and jam. Fun and cheap. We popped in just for a snack and split one. Under $3 and we were on our way again winding through Pike Place. Cute shop with lots of teas and little tables. A good place to wait out the latest rain storm. Wish I had thought to take home... More

We ordered two savory crumpets and a sweet crumpet to have along with our coffee. Not one thing was bad! Wish we had stayed in town longer than the weekend, we would have gone again. The free coffee/tea refills are also very nice

Its not muffin, its not a biscuit, its not just bread. It is a little airy pillow of magic sorcery. Add cream cheese, lemon curd, or maple butter and church is OUT. This was hands down our favorite snack during our visit to Seattle. A sweet treat that you don't want to pass up (no matter how long the line... More

After reading about this place we had to visit. It's only a small shop but definitely worth your time to stop in for a crumpet. We had breakfast here and we had expected it to be busy so we were surprised to find there were only two other tables taken in the shop and the occupiers of those other tables... More

This was our first time having Crumpets. They were amazing. I had the pesto and tomato I would rate it a 10 out of 10 my wife had the egg and ham with tomato added and she gave it a 8 out of 10. We also tried the maple butter and it was so so good. Would highly recommend this... More

A first time crumpet eater and enjoyed one with smoked salmon and veggies. Close to the market and our hotel. Get there early and there is no waiting. Very filling and scrumptious!

Delicious crumpets. Described as a cross between an English muffin and a pancake, the crumpet actually stands on its own - it's a crumpet! Light with a bit of a crispness and a hint of sweetness they are enjoyable with savory toppings or sweet. You will not be disappointed in either but I highly recommend one with maple butter. Mmmm.

We got here very early when it was still completely empty. We even got our own table. We ordered 4 crumpets to share (plain, Nutella, lemon curd, and one with pesto) and a couple of drinks. The crumpets were good but definitely not as amazing as we expected based on all the hype. Definitely wouldn't stand in line for more... More

A fabulous place to grab a substantive breakfast to start the day at the market - the groats are delicious, vegan-friendly, and really filling. We ate here, people-watched, and then wandered!
