Is it just me or does Seattle know how to do two desserts really well- macarons and ice cream. It does help that these are my two favorite desserts, so…maybe I’m just bias. Regardless, here are my top dessert spots (in no particular order) in Seattle! And speaking of…
This is not a drill! This place got creative and somehow smushed my two favorite things into one- ice cream & macarons. Aside from this dynamic duo, The Moo Bar is also known for their teas and puffy waffle cones.
There’s nothing quite like simple & sweet. This popular ice cream shop is locally made and known for their fresh and fun flavors. A fan favorite is lavender.
I honestly didn’t think I was a cupcake fan, until I found Trophy! Maybe it’s how they fill the center of the cake with rich flavors, or maybe it is how they seem to put just a little more frosting on top. Whatever it is, this sweet spot not only has decadent cupcakes, but also incredible macarons.
I haven’t been to France yet, but I imagine this is what their pastries taste like. If there isn’t a line out the door, this Pike Place bakery might blend in with the hustle and bustle. Located near Beecher’s Cheese, this sweet spot is a must.
Macarons & Mischief- that’s their motto. Add a little bubbly and you have a trifecta. Lady Yum is well known for their unique flavors and eclectic décor. They have monthly flavors, but shindig and salted caramel are among their best original flavors.
Full Tilt Ice Cream-
Speaking of quirky and fun, Full Tilt is another local Seattle ice cream shop that lives for bright and bold. For example, the below photo is marshmallow and Sour Patch Watermelon flavors. (They also offer vegan flavors!) To add to their atmosphere, the parlor includes neon walls and an arcade.
Simple, sweet, and to the point. This old-school styled soda fountain offers a variety of classic (and vegan) flavors that’ll bring you back to the good ole days. However, if you want to mix it up a bit, they also offer boozy milkshakes.
Shugg’s Soda Fountain
Just a quick walk from Pike Place, Shugg’s is going to give you “all the feels” with their soda fountain style and ice cream offerings. You can choose you ice cream in the form of shakes, floats, sundaes, and boozy floats/shakes.
Talk about sensational! This bakery will play to your senses with it’s tantalizing smells, and ornate confectioneries. Nouveau offers everything from sweet pastries and chocolate to pizza and bread.
Another cupcake place that grabbed my attention! According to their site, they were the first cupcake bakery to open in Seattle, and have since focused on fresh, natural, and local ingredients. Aside from their scrumptious cupcakes, they also serve ice cream.
