Seattle Weekly's Description

Too many Americans associate crumpets with British society at its stuffiest. Pike Place Market's Crumpet Shop may not be a hipster hot spot, but the crumpets are fabulous: softer than English muffins and riddled with a sponge-like network of holes that are magnificent at absorbing melted butter. Few breakfasts are finer than a toasted crumpet with tea-the shop serves several varieties, all presteeped, or infused when you order them. If you've got a dawdling kind of lunch, the in-house crumpet toasters can (slowly) build up mountainous sandwiches with roast meats and thick slabs of wonderful oat-groat bread.

    Enjoy a freshly baked crumpet

  • Cheapism on 08/31/11

    Grab a bottomless cup of their fresh tea for $2.25. It goes great with one of their scones which are sweet or savory. If you're lucky, you'll get one warm out of the oven, and you may fall in love.
