A delightful place to have exquisite pastries and coffee. Lovely reminder of a very parisian bakery with pacific northwest flair. It is alway very busy, but it never disappoints.

We love the almond/chocolate croissant! Delicious! The crust is perfect, just the right amount of chocolate, the almond taste is out of this world! We try to get here every weekend just for this delicious item!!

Very good bakery - love both their sandwiches and their "sweets." Usually goto their location on Capitol Hill as it is more convenient for me. Friendly, knowledgeable staff make the visit even better, and there is an espresso bar in the shop.

Great variety of sandwiches, pastries and desserts...delicious! Fun to watch the chocolate being mix in the vat down stairs through the glass window in the floor.

I have really enjoyed my experiences in this bakery. A blackberry pastry they featured once has motivated me to return on occasion to see if they had it available. It was really good.

From the sandwiches to the pizza and the macaroons to the twice baked chocolate croissant. Everything is amazing. I go almost once a week now and am never disappointed. The consistency is always there and the food is always good.

They have the best Macarons in town. Bright and colorful and bigger than most. The baked goods are top notch!

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
