Bang Bang Cafe (already getting rave reviews)

TheCookbookChronicles paid a visit to (stalked) Belltown’s new Bang Bang Cafe that we profiled a couple weeks ago. The tiny cafe is already gaining quite a reputation (5/5 Yelp) for delicious treats. Don’t take our word for it, swing by and pay them a visit!

I went down there at 11am today and Miki said she had sold out of the ham scones already. So I bought an almond scone, and a sticky bun for good measure (yum). The scones are just as good as I remember–super crunchy on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside. They aren’t the almost under-baked, feather-light variety, but the type that’s got a bit more body, due to the few extra minutes in the oven that give them that glorious crust. In addition to baked goods, they also have a case full of prepared foods. When I looked up the address yesterday on Yelp, I’d read that a poster claimed Bang Bang served the “Best Vegan Mac n Cheese in the City”, and I told the sisters so. A small bowl soon appeared at my table…If you’re a regular reader on this blog, it should come as no shock that I’m a huge fan of meat. And yet, this mac n cheese was so flavorful…so, un-vegan in my (admittedly myopic) opinion.

So there you have it–my vote for the best scone in Seattle, and a thumbs up for a delicious vegan dish that you’ll enjoy, whether you’re vegan or not.

(P.S. Miki and Yuki are the sweetest sisters, and I wish them the best in their new endeavor!)

  1. I haven’t been yet, so I don’t have my own opinion to share, but it’s worth pointing out that most of those glowing reviews look to be fake. Lots of users with zero friends and only one or two reviews written makes me think that someone is creating accounts just to write five-star reviews.

    Who knows, I could be wrong, but that was my perception…

    Can’t wait to check it out though… is this in the old Cafe Elbasha location?

  2. Man, that’s a good business idea isn’t it? Just register about 200 fake yelp accounts and make them swarm businesses. My oh my, the “web” of lies.

    Yes. That’s the old Elbasha location. I never went in there.
