It’s no secret that Seattle is home to some excellent bakeries. What is less talked about are the equally impressive bake shops on Seattle’s Eastside. Whether you prefer your pastries to be of the sweet or savory variety, these confectionaries have got a little something for everyone:
- La Cherie Bakery – Redmond, WA
With nearly 52 5-star reviews on Google, La Cherie Bakery is a must try. All their cake flavors are delectable. However, what truly makes this bakery stand out is their heavenly, melt-in-your-mouth, Ukrainian honey cake! Honey cake signature flavors include apricot marzipan, strawberry mango passion fruit, black currant, and walnut prune.
- Wildflour Gluten Free Bakery – Bellevue, WA
If your diet is gluten-free but you still love a good pastry, then you’ll love this gem of a bake shop. Wildflour Bakery has over 100 5-star reviews and specializes in all thing’s gluten-free including bread, biscuits, biscotti, and cookies. We recommend trying their delightful lavender lemon bars.
- Hollywood Baked Goods – Kirkland, WA
Another confectionary with excellent ratings is Hollywood Baked Goods in Kirkland’s Totem Lake neighborhood. This shop specializes in creating exquisite custom cakes and cupcakes so next time you’re in need of a cake that looks good and tastes divine, we recommend ordering one here.
- The North Bend Bakery – North Bend, WA
This one is for those of you that prefer sweet and savory treats. Located in Downtown North Bend, this bakery is the perfect place to stop for anything from cinnamon rolls to savory tarts. And while you’re at it, enjoy an espresso from their coffee bar.
- Farine Bakery – Redmond, WA & Bellevue, WA
Last but certainly not least on our list, is this Belgium inspired bakery with locations in both Downtown Redmond and Bellevue. The owners traveled extensively across France and Belgium researching ingredients to bring the very best patisserie to the Eastside. We recommend stopping for breakfast and enjoying a breakfast sandwich on one of their homemade flaky croissants, or perhaps a perfectly made Belgium waffle.
