Le Panier - Very French Bakery (Seattle)

Le Panier (translation "bread basket") was opened in 1983 by a Frenchman living in the U.S. who missed his daily baguette and croissant. Le Panier reflects what you would find in a local boulangerie (bakery) and patisserie (pastry shop) in France.

Le Panier immediately became a instant hit for local Seattlites, as well as, visitors to Pike Place Market. Located in the heart of the market for almost 20 year offering a genuine taste of France.
The aroma of freshly baked bread and delectable pastries will surround you, capturing your senses, luring you off the main street of the busy Pike Place Market. Almost unconsciously you've arrive at the counter of Le Panier with the dilemma of what to try first. Not that you really have a choice in the matter, so don't even try to resist the seductive temptations displayed before you. Is this a dream? Just in case, don't pinch yourself until you've indulged a little. Oh la la - the pain au chocolat is divine. Next, an eclair that's so light with cream filling that is sublime. There is no passport required to go to this authentic French bakery and the trip is oh so worth it. A patisserie worthy of a Paris cafe makes Le Panier, all the French you need to know.
