I will be out there early March for my birthday. I can't possibly imagine a birthday without cake! Anyone have any recommendations for a bakery with possible hotel delivery or within walking distance of the Alexia Hotel on 1st?

Thanks in advance!

    The first place that comes to mind is Macrina Bakery in Belltown... they're also on 1st Avenue, about a mile away heading northwest.

    I can't think of any bakeries that do cakes in or near Pike Place Market, which would be a closer walk.

      Do you require a whole cake ... or would a cake-based dessert in a restaurant fill the need?

        Yeah, I was looking for a whole cake.

        You might ask your hotel, the Alexis, for recommendations. Tom Douglas has a bakery on the edge
        of downtown. http://tomdouglas.com/index.php?page=... Macrina is also downtown. http://macrinabakery.com/cake-menu.php. Don't know if they deliver.
