Sometimes it feels like there’s a bakery void in the Magnolia/Interbay area of Seattle and when you map out a day’s adventures based on coffee shops and pastries like I do, this creates a little bit of a problem.
Thankfully the Fuji Bakery finally opened on Friday and it’s right in the heart of Interbay.
We checked out the tables. ( I love that this one has a couple big benches where you can actually sit and enjoy.)
But this time we grabbed a bag full of pastries for the road.
Our favorites are the milk sticks (the guys), the pain au chocolat (the hubby) and the pear croissants (me). I do hope you stop in and check them out.
We also recently stopped in at another lovely local patisserie on Queen Anne hill. (Unlike Magnolia/Interbay the “AVE” in Queen Anne has baked goodies in abundance: Cafe De Lion, Macrina, El Diablo and Top Pot to name a few) The patio at La Reve is probably the most delightful.
And I love how it’s also right near the bookstore and some other cute shops too.
(PS. if you really need to work off the sugar energy, there is a playground literally a few blocks away.)
Bakeries plus playground plus sun equals perfect weekend. I hope you have a lovely one!
(PPS. Isn’t it great when it’s only Wednesday and you’re already dreaming of week END!)
(PPPS I first heard about Fuji Bakery from a lovely blogger named Shirley who has an amazing Japanese Food Blog and I’m oh so grateful!)
