Tucked away in a small offshoot of main Ballard, Honor Artisan Bakery serves some of the finest pastries in Seattle. Rich, buttery, flaky croissants fresh of out the oven infiltrating the space is practically heaven. They also offer some unique items typically not found at other bakeries in the city. The Kouign Amann introduced to me recently by a friend is divine; a puff pastry layered with salt and sugar then topped with bits of sea salt and sugar will have you on your knees (well not literally). Delicate quiches quickly disappear on weekend mornings. The Parisian style macaroons are one of their signature items. Honor is a staple of the neighborhood, so order a coffee from Lighthouse roasters and sink into one of the Adirondack chairs in front with a fresh pastry. You won't want to leave.

Pros: Kouign Amann, Canelés, Croissants

Cons: Only open Wednesday-Sunday, Small Space

Too late for brunch at A Caprice Kitchen and too early for dinner at Delancey, we happily ventured half way in between and had one sweet - and one savory - tart at Honore to stave off our midday hunger.

Serviceable inside - you'll find limited seating as the bakery's focus is not on a full service, sit down experience but rather on its pastry - and their focused approach has paid off! We grabbed a couple of chairs on the sidewalk and shared a leisurely onion & Gruyere tart -- followed by the strawberry tart. Both had their high notes - but the touch of thyme in the onion & Gruyere made it the winner.

That little strip of NW 70th has come a long way in the past 10 years when the only place for sustenance on the street was Tarasco (thankfully still serving up good Mexican fare). Honore has found a nice niche on that fast growing food strip.

Smack-dab in the middle of a lovely Ballard neighborhood, and snuggled up on a block next to the esteemed pizza house Delancey, Honore brings people and delicious French pastries together in an elegant union that includes lots and lots of butter .
This patisserie is well known for several of their French confections including the croissant, canel, macaron, Kouign amann, and ? well, everything they bake! There is nary a disappointment behind their case of pastry jewels. On a recent visit, their quiche was superb, with a delicate crust and brilliant combination of gruyere, egg & leek . Coffee by Lighthouse and the best dog watching this side of Marymoor complete your quest for Sunday morning nirvana.
Tip: though a place to sit can be hard to come by, there is additional seating in a delightful patio area behind the building!

This charming Ballard bakery is a tempting spot to camp out with a book, a pastry and a steaming latte. With only 6 stools though, that can be an overly ambitious plan. That said, the pastries are fantastic - the Kouign Amann hits that perfect sweet/salty balance with sea salt and burned sugar. The pastries taste as scrumptious as they look and the girl behind the counter is as sweet as the confections she dispenses. Don't leave without a couple of colorful macaroons, one of the bakery's signature items. They have about a dozen flavors and when you get home and bite into that delicately flavored perfection, you'll be glad you followed my advice.

Cons: Small, very little seating

Empress Of Desserts has a nice selection of cakes that both look elegant and taste delicious. Their icing is always a nice accent and does not overpower the fillings. I don't usually like the chocolate cakes, but we got one here that complimented the raspberry creme filling very nicely.
Their prices are very reasonable
