Bakery Nouveau, the highly respected confectionery with locations in West Seattle and Capitol Hill, is heading south to Burien with its largest cafe to date. Set to open in September, the new space will cover 7,500 square feet, allowing the bakery to craft chocolates all year rather than just in cooler months. This location will also be the only one to scoop gelato.
Naturally, the cases at 426 SW 153rd Street will be packed with the company’s picture-perfect breads, cakes, and pastries galore, like croissants, macarons, and tarts. On the savory side, Bakery Nouveau will serve a menu of pizzas, quiches, and sandwiches. Patrons will be able to see into the production space and the chocolate-making room, and indoor seating will even be complemented by a deck for outdoor enjoyment.
Bakery Nouveau owners William and Heather Leaman opened their first cafe in 2006 in West Seattle, adding their Capitol Hill outpost in 2013; between them, the two bakeries offer one of the widest and most sought-after varieties of baked goods in Seattle. The Leamans plans to announce an exact opening date in the coming weeks. Once their latest expansion rolls out, it will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.
