Renton - good bakeries/patisseries ?

Hi all,

First time on Greater Seattle CH board (I "live" on the Vancouver BC CH board).

We're visiting some dear friends in Renton this weekend. I'd like to pick up some nice pastries for them, not too fancy, but something elegant. Any suggestions ?

We're arriving midday Saturday. I usually get off I-405 onto S. Talbot, up Benson en-route to our friends' house, so I'll be skirting by downtown.

Thanks a bunch.

  1. I'd suggest you bring them something special from Vancouver.
    You won't find what you want in Renton.
    Good Luck!

    1. Hoffman's in Kirkland is a very easy on/easy off of the 405.

      Just get off at exit 18 and head West for about 1/2 mile. They have wonderful baked goods and you can order in advance and they will have them ready.

        Thanks all.

        I ended up finding a place called Cakes of Paradise:

        Which perfectly meets my need. They were referred by:

        Which is more than I need for this occasion but nevertheless a valuable resource.
