Fuji Bakery is a Japanese artisan bakery with two locations in Seattle. We checked out the one in the International District, located on 5th and S. King St. Seattle is lucky to have a bakery like this one. With the smell of fresh bread greeting you when you enter, to all of the glistening French Pastries and cakes on display, I was happily surprised. The only miss was the French Macarons. I found them to be too small and slightly hard and the price a little high at two dollars each. But my Chocolate Matcha Croissant was flakey and buttery and my Chocolate Orange Éclair was a show stopper. As I took a bite of my dessert back at home, I felt grateful to live so close to bakery like this. There's just something about stepping into a shop like this one, in the heart of the city, that feels timeless. The smells and the chatter of customers picking out their Danishes and croissants to have with their afternoon coffee. Oh yes, Fuji Bakery, I'd return for more French pastries any day.
