1. Le Creperie Voila – Breakfast
If you’re a traveler looking for a breakfast that is slightly more sophisticated than that of the continental variety, then you’ll find it here at Le Creperie Voila. Situated at the Washington Trade and Convention Centre on Pike Street, you’ll find the beauty is in its fast food service. Every connoisseur wants their sophistication packed while on the go n’est-ce pas? Though it caters to lunch, snack and early dinner goers, I would say it’s quite a popular breakfast pit stop for locals and curious visitors alike. And, I don’t blame them, the menu is simple and universal. I have to say the grilled chicken crepe was a warm and savory piece of heaven in the early hours of the morning. What a jump start to the day!
2. Le Panier – Brunch
Still a favorite of mine, mentioned in last year’s blog post, “Seattle’s Secrets Series: The Baked Variety,” I keep coming back for their renowned Feuilletés. Champignon and Epinard are my go-to selections. If its something sweet you’re craving, Le Panier makes a nice selection of macarons and carries a large quantity of double stripped chocolate croissants. Top that with a rich house made Mocha or eye opening Americano and you’ll be set to watch the Pike Place Market scenery buzz by while munching.
3. Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop – Snack
Molly Moon’s on Pine Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenue off the side of “The Chocolate Box” (four other locations in the GSA), had me at their sign for “Triple Threat Babycakes.” Indeed they are, but you’ll have to try for yourself to know what I mean. Let’s just say, I’ll want to stop by next time. The red velvets are scrumptious! Best known for their home made ice creams (sourced from Washington cows), Molly Moon also offer pies, tarts and other pastry dessert items.
