Seattle >Macrina Bakery & Cafe
Neighborhood Favorite. This bakery cafe is a Belltown destination for quick stop gourmet breakfast or lunch fare to go. A little pricey, but the preparations are always fresh, delicious and hearty. Get there early to beat the lunch rush, or weekend brunch swarm. This place is popular for a reason. One major complaint is that the service is hit or miss. The coffee might start out good, but if your barrista blows, so will what ends up in your cup.
I don't get it.. I don't understand the raves this place gets. I've been there twice, and I doubt I'd go back. The coffee was fine, but the baked goods (I had a muffin the first time, and scone the second) were average by the most generous standard. And the service was quite rude. There was a mix up with my coffee order (I had ordered it, but no one told the person who was making the coffee), and when I asked for my coffee, they made nasty cracks about me while I was still standing right there and blamed the mix-up on me, saying that I hadn't placed the order. Maybe they've never heard the phrase, "The customer is always right" (and I actually *was* right in this case), but someone should clue them in. For breakfast, try Lux down the street. Excellent baked goods and nice people.
