Saturday Morning Pastries - Downtown Tacoma

While I was sick a few months ago, my husband  brought home an issue of South Sound magazine which featured all the "Bests of..." in our area. I took note of the Best Bakery Category and added it to our "Things to-do on Saturday" list, so this weekend we had the opportunity to check it out ourselves.

I would love to have this sign hanging in my kitchen!

Who doesn't get excited to see a row of cakes?!?
The one that caught my attention was the Aztec: chocolate cake with
cinnamon, cayenne and ginger and garnished with dried chilli peppers.

I guess we were too excited to take pictures
before tasting these award winning scones.

For an excursion in funky downtown Tacoma, be sure to visit this popular pastry
shop with chocolate brown walls that make you feel cozy and welcome the
moment you open the door. Don't hesitate to order your favorite latte for the
richest espresso you can get in Tacoma, roasted by Valhalla Coffee Co. It is excellent.

Broadway is just a couple blocks away with several Antique shops,
including a kitschy mall with one of the largest used book collections I've seen.

An old parking garage on Broadway.
