Discover this lovely neighborhood bakery and indulge in decadent cakes, old-fashioned cookies and other tasty treats. – In Short
This friendly First Hill confectionery owned by self-taught baker Stephanie Crocker and her husband John McCaig invites passers-by with its mouthwatering baked goods and pink-striped interior that resembles the inside of a cake box. During her stint at neighborhood farmers' markets, Crocker learned the art of simple sweet and savory pastries made with fresh wholesome ingedients and no preservatives. Signature items include hand-pressed shortbread, cinnamon brioche, red velvet cupcakes, various tiramisu, marshmallows and miniature desserts.
Hits: Fresh pastries are made on-site and replenished throughout the day.
Misses: Parking is a challenge in the area. Opt to walk or take public transportation if possible.
