Can we have dessert every day for ALL of our meals? The ingredients in most desserts basically captures each food group, right? Okay, all kidding aside, I’m always on the hunt for Seattle’s best desserts. It makes me happy to find something that is all parts sweet? Salty? Or just tastes damn good!
We’re lucky here in Seattle, where there are a ton of options for desserts – cafes, bakeries and tiny mom and pop restaurants.
With all of these options, I’ve realized, It’s not about where or when we consume these desserts but rather, the type of ingredients and taste (chocolate + caramel anyone?). These options have allowed me to acquire an unhealthy excitement for finding the sweetest, chocolate-ist, tastiest treats on any menu.
I’ve compiled a list, in no particular order, of unpretentious, inexpensive treats for the masses (you)! Heads up: this list contains ‘treats’ of all different kinds (I thought of you, carrot cake lovers!)
Spinasee | Capitol Hill
Torta al Cioccolato. This is the PERFECT dark chocolate cake with gianduja mousse, chocolate buttercream, brutti ma buoni and pomegranate sauce.
Lark Restaurant | Capitol Hill
Maple brown butter cake with candied walnut, maple gelée and burnt cinnamon crémeux.
Cafe Champagne | Downtown Seattle
CRÈME BRÛLÉE 7. Need I say more?
Nue Seattle | Capitol Hill
Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. Fun, festive and futuristic.
Rockcreek | Fremont
RockCreek S’mores, Valrhona chocolate mousse, graham, smoked meringue, graham tuile. You don’t have to be an adult to consume but you probably are an adult. Please consume.
Sawyer | Ballard
Dily bars. Old, meet new school. New school, meet old.
Homer | Beacon Hill
Soft serve ice cream with booze. Can we have all of our ice cream served with booze?
The Art Of The Table | Fremont
Carrot Cake – classic with rich, creative ingredients.
Tilikum Place Cafe | Belltown
Profiteroles with vanilla ice cream and pomegranate caramel. For anyone who doesn’t know what a Profiteroles is (hint: it’s one of Seattle’s best desserts), Tilikum Cafe will give you the run down.
The North Bend Bakery | North Bend
Chocolate and almond croissants. This bakery, in the heart of Downtown North Bend, is to die for! It’s cute and quaint and the perfect spot for a delicious latte, people watching, or to grab a snack after a hike!
