Description

The thrill of Pike Place Market is how many treasures outnumber the tourist traps. Follow your nose to know you’re in the treasure zone at Le Panier, the “Very French Bakery.” The line advances quicker than you expect; just before you blurt out your order for pastel macarons or pearl sugar chouquettes or epi baguettes, turn to the self-serve shelf at your right and snag yourself a pre-packed half-pound cellophane bag of hazelnut sablé cookies. They’re simple, sandy-textured, smaller than a checkerboard square, but completely satisfying.
