Stopping in at the Flying Apron Cafe, Seattle, WA.
Let me just say, it was the best cup of brewed coffee I’d had in a long time.
Now, let’s talk about the food and atmosphere.
We were looking for an afternoon treat and a little coffee pick-me-up.
• A café with a comfortable place to watch the world for a while? That would be an added bonus.

Hm, where could we find a café with all these desirable qualities?
We were visiting the Fremont area of Seattle on a rainy, spring Saturday afternoon and decided to try the outwardly charming “Flying Apron”. Seattle's only 100% Gluten-Free and Vegan bakery as stated on their website.
Okay, stop! Do not allow your preconceived idea of health food and gluten-free to keep you from reading the rest of this post! Keep going. Look at the pretty pictures. You just might be surprised at what you find. Did I mention that my cup of coffee was incredibly delicious? Just keep that in mind.

The delectable offerings at the
Flying Apron did not disappoint.
There were sweets in all varieties and a plethora of fresh lunch entrees, as well.
The Flying Apron website describes it’s fare.

Sitting at one of the many antique oak tables, nestled by a large window overlooking the bustling street, my friend and I shared a Ginger Currant Scone and a large, yummy Peanut Butter Cookie. Both were deliciously complimented by our fresh, rich, perfectly-brewed coffee. I mentioned the coffee before, right?
Additional menu items that we did not try include such treats as Apple Pie, Apricot Thumbprint Cookies, Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, Berry Corn Muffins, Berry oat Wondies, Berry Scones, Berry Tea Bisquets, Cardamon Cupcakes with Chai Frosting… well, I think you get the idea. You might want to check out the rest of the menu at the Flying Apron website.

There are two locations for the Flying Apron cafes. They are located in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood at 3510 Fremont Ave N and also at the entrance to Redmond Town Center at 16541 Redmond Way.google61d4073e115e71da.html
