We approve of smartphone-sized pastries. Urban Bakery’s bar desserts are all great, from the tart lemon bar to the “magic bar” which has a shortbread bottom topped with chocolate and nuts. They make sandwiches and coffee too, but we’re big fans of the bars. You just can’t play Candy Crush on them. Use this place if you forgot to bring a dessert for that Green Lake picnic you knew about for weeks.

Eastlake Bar & Grill
Eastlake has average American food, but the rooftop with a tiki bar, astro-turf, and life-size board games is very above average.
Suggested by our writers
Bakery Nouveau is an excellent Capitol Hill bakery we like most for the twice baked almond croissant and croque monsieur.
For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
