The Good News: Fuji Bakery Has a Third Location

The bad news: The other outposts are closed until fall.

Sadly unavailable as of today.

 Fuji Bakery, that jewel box of insanely good French-meets-Japanese pastries, has been scouting a third location for more than a year. And the West Queen Anne and Interbay nabe appears to be the winner. Owner Akihiro Nakamura had originally considered Ballard or Capitol Hill, but says on Facebook that a new flagship location is coming to 1030 Elliott Ave W. The space is 2,900 square feet, he says, about three or four times larger than the original shop and baking facility in Bellevue. He’s hoping the location will draw customers from Queen Anne, Interbay, Ballard, and Magnolia.

The downside—Fuji’s other two locations in Bellevue and the International District have shut down as of today as the company prepares to move its production to the new store. “We cannot do it otherwise, or our quality will not continue,” says Nakamura. “We’re just trying to come back as soon as possible.”

This means no curry buns, bacon epis, or cunning cubes of brioche until some time this fall. But when Fuji’s mini-empire reopens, Nakamura promises a larger selection of pastries and organic breads. Right now the staff is working on new recipes and will spend the coming months testing and perfecting them. Stay tuned.
