Fodor's Review

A few savory dishes are available at this Ballard "cakery," but consider passing on the chicken pot pie in favor of the grilled chocolate sandwich. Autumn Martin, formerly head chocolatier at Theo Chocolate, specializes in creative, high-quality desserts such as a "s'mores" molten chocolate cake with house-made marshmallows and caramel, and cookies with house-smoked chocolate chips. Thick, rich milk shakes come in gourmet seasonal flavors like Meyer lemon with lavender,

or grownup "boozy" shakes like smoked chocolate and scotch. Hot Cakes is open late night, too (till 10 pm Sunday through Thursday, and till 11 pm Friday and Saturday). A few long communal tables make for casual dining. There are a surprisingly large number of vegan options, too.
