The Best European Bakeries in Seattle

The Best European Bakeries in Seattle, Seattle, Washington (B)

Whether you’re searching for something French, German, Swedish or Dutch, there is no shortage of European bakeries in Seattle. From delectable marzipan potatoes to almond croissants, dive face first in a plateful of freshly-baked European sweet treats. And don’t worry about portion sizes, this is America so your cookie, croissant or Danish will be at least fifty-percent larger than what you’d find in Europe.

This is Seattle’s designer Scandinavian bakery and café. The Swedish and Norwegian immigrants contributed to much of the construction, history and culture of Seattle, which is sadly losing its roots. Expect to find a mix of traditional breads, cakes, sandwiches and cookies, with an American twist. Here you can find unique drinks like the London Fog, Toddy, Dopio, Cider and seasonal Egg Nog.

Locally owned and operated since 1974, Paul Larsen began his baking career at 14 in Copenhagen and became an apprentice to one of the finest chefs in Copenhagen. From Denmark to Ballard, Larsen's features an in-house cafe and bakery as well as an online shop. Larsen's is an active member in the Scandinavian community and creates old-school recipes using some of the most fresh local ingredients. Holiday baked goods available for order online.  ......
