Café Besalu

Updated 01/24/2013

Fodor's Review

A slice of France here in Ballard, this small, casual bakery gets patrons from across the entire city, thanks to its I-swear-I'm-in-Paris croissants—they are buttery, flaky perfection. Weekend lines are long, but if you score a table, you'll be in heaven. You can also, of course, take pastries to go, which is perfect if you're en route to Golden Gardens. Apple turnovers, pain au chocolat, decent espresso drinks, quiches, and sandwiches round out the offerings.

Note that Besalu is a bit north of downtown Ballard on 24th Avenue, but the walk is worth it. Besalu has twice-yearly weekly closures, usually after Christmas and around July 4, so call ahead.
