This page is a sampling of some of the items available at Bakery Nouveau. Our menu varies seasonally and sometimes even weekly, depending on what ingredients are in season.

Our café always has a large selection of fresh baked goods and desserts to choose from, which are sold on a first come, first serve basis. However, if there are specific items you want, and they are currently in season, we are happy to take a pre-paid order. For this, we require a minimum of 48 hours advanced notice. Why 48 hours? It lets us place your order into our production schedule, either adjusting our normal batch sizes or starting a batch just for that order. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can assist you in person while you are in the café, or by phone at 206-923-0534 (West Seattle) or 206-858-6957 (Capitol Hill). We currently do not take orders through e-mail, although we are happy to answer questions about product availability. Please note that chocolates and macarons may require 72 hours or more, due to a longer production cycle. Please call or e-mail for further information, we would be happy to help you"
