Seattle Weekly's Description
Opening a tiny French bakery within easy biking distance of Cafe Besalu seems like sheer madness, but Franz Gilbertson has made a success of his small Ballard shop. Honore's croissants may not top the competitor's, but his eggy, caramelized canalÃ©s are unrivaled in this town, as are his airy French macaronsâparticularly the coffee, pistachio, and coconut-caramel. The kouign (pronounced queen) amman, a buttery pastry with a salty caramel top, is one of the city's great indulgences.
Tips from foursquare
If it looks like the limited counter space is taken, head to the rear for a few tables hidden!
Melt-in-your-mouth macarons and deliciously delicate leek-gruyere quiche. The coffee's pretty good, too.
Almond croissant is tender, yet really flaky and buttery. Eat it.
Everything is delicious!
Along with Le Pichet + @PacificNormWest's, one of the best quiches in Seattle! Leek + Gruyere is to die for!
