Fodor's Expert Review Bakery Nouveau

$ West Seattle Café

Widely considered one of the best bakeries in the city, Bakery Nouveau has perfected many things, including cakes, croissants, and tarts. Their chocolate cake, in particular, makes us swoon, though twice-baked almond croissants are so good you might think you're in France when you take a bite—and owner William Leaman did lead a U.S. team to victory in France's Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie. Sandwiches, quiches, and pizzas are also on offer if you need something delicious and substantial before a banana mousse, pistachio macaron, or chocolate éclair. Artisan breads and good coffee round out the offerings. It's only open 'til 7 pm, Sunday through Thursday. If you don't make it out to West Seattle, they have a Capitol Hill location as well: 137 15th Avenue East (206/858-6962).
