I want to send some fresh and sweet goodies for my sister's birthday today. I live in new york and remember an internet tycoon's podcast / interview last year talking about some amazing spot in Seattle that has the best cookies / cakes in the country. I looked for Best Seattle Bakery on Google, but it wasn't Cafe Besalu or the ones on the lists that came up, although they look like a decent option. She lives by bowdoin place. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Charles is wayyy overrated. They have good sweet potatoes and decent mac n cheese. Fried chicken dry and i went for a second helping when a new batch came out and it was still dry and rather bland. Cornbread was weak and the sweet tea was average. The spot on 1st avenue between 6 and 7th was the best I've had, though not everything on that menu is par excellence. Just the collards and fried chicken. Not cheap, but far better than Charles.
