If you were craving macarons to round out your sandwich from Meat and Bread or cupcakes to accompany your lobster roll from Bar Harbor, take heart: Trophy Cupcakes is joining the strong line up at South Lake Union’s 400 Fairview building as of Monday, May 1.
The local chain is opening what it refers to as an “extended pop-up” inside the first-floor food hall that also houses Meat and Bread, Bar Harbor, Verde and Co flower shop, the brand-new Kai Market spin-off from Uwajimaya, and the waiting room/lounge for Mbar’s rooftop dining.
The sweets shop won’t be a permanent resident of the hall — at least not yet. The shop’s agreement runs through the end of October, with the possibility of staying longer. This branch will also be fairly small compared to the company’s other locations.
Trophy Cupcakes opened its first shop in Wallingford in 2007. Wife-and-husband owners Jennifer Shea and Michael Williamson have since expanded to University Village and Pacific Place, and opened Bellevue's Cafe Trophy — an all-day cafe with pastries and champagne on tap — in 2016.
400 Fairview, website. Open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting May 1.
