You know what I love about Bakery Nouveau? That an average Joe like me can walk in to this great multi-award winning bakery and be greeted like the King of France every single time. (Does France still have a King?) Whoever does the hiring at Bakery Nouveau – knows how to pick ‘em: Friendly, genuine, and engaged front end staff and baristas who actually smile – and mean it.

Bakery Nouveau is where class meets beauty, and excellent baking meets well served coffee. If you haven’t been, this is a must stop place in West Seattle (and on Capitol Hill) to fill up on hearty baked breads and delicious desserts.

You can read about their award-winning streak here, but I will just say that Bakery Nouveau provides wonderful pastries, cakes, and breads that will make Seattle’s gray skies disappear – even if only in the time it takes for you to enjoy a chocolate croissant and an Americano.

One thing is for sure – Seattleites love Bakery Nouveau. The West Seattle location on California Ave is always jammed with customers that you’ll be lucky to find a seat during rush hour. My suggestion if you want to sit down, I would avoid the morning rush and try visiting mid-afternoon.
