Beach Bakery

Beach Bakery is truly a sweet treat for the Rainier Beach neighborhood. With strong espresso and strong wifi, it’s a great place to sit yourself down and work a while, which is what I did last Saturday. I experienced friendly service and a relaxing atmosphere, not to mention the best chocolate-banana muffin of my life:

The muffin, which tasted of real banana and quality chocolate (rather than a vanilla muffin with some chocolate chips sprinkled in) was so good I decided to keep going. The next treat was a peanut butter and jelly bar:

Again, they nailed the flavors – not overly sweet, with strong flavors. I was inspired to buy some farmer’s market bread, freshly ground peanut butter, and local jam and spent the work-week eating some amazing PBJ sandwiches. Lastly, I collected a few treats to go:

On the bottom left is a lime-coconut tart, with a Nanaimo bar in the back and a portion of a Tres Leches cake on the right. The lime tart and Nanaimo bar were the stars of the show, with the lime tart having an intensely lime flavor and fresh, crumbly crust and the Nanaimo bar having a lovely cream filling. I loved the care that went into all the desserts and the prices are more reasonable than other spots in Seattle. I highly recommend this spot if you’re in South Seattle (and if you’re not, it’s worth making the trek).
