We heard about this bakery from the next door Serious Pie waitress who raved about the coconut cream pie. So, of course, we had to try it! Though, when we went it was already closed. So the next morning we tried again and we got a fig bar, yogurt and granola cup, and a bitesize coconut cream pie to-go (they put it in a small chinese to-go looking box which was perfect ).

I absolutely LOVED all of them, and I REALLY enjoyed the granola and yogurt cup which I kept craving throughout my visit in seattle~

Definitely worth a visit to taste some of their baked goods. I would for sure go back if ever back in seattle.

Pros: Bitesize coconut creame pie, fig bars, yogurt & granola

Cons: No place to dine, closes early

When I get a chance for a qick bite in downtown Seattle I head to the Dahlia Bakery. On a cold or wet or overcast day a warm bowl of soup always sounds great and the Dahlia Bakery delivers. There are other soup flavors, but my favorite is their house made tomato. A bowl of soup includes a piece of bread as well.
The baked goods are all delicious, if not a little high in price. If you want some bread, rolls, or the famous coconut cream pie this is the place for you. Smaller baked goods like cookies can be a little expensive.

Pros: Soup, bread, cookies, pie

Cons: no space for dining, on street parking

My favorite actual pie in Seattle is undoubtedly, invariably, the luscious, one of a kind true Seattle recipe for creamy coconut cream pie to be found only at Tom Douglas' little bakery on 4th avenue, called Dahlia. Lots of places have pie in Seattle. If you try and compare bakeries, you will not find a better slice of pie than that coconut cream pie at Dahlia. It literally is the one item that keeps people coming there every single day. Very fresh, very creamy, absolutely best of breed coconut cream pie. Tom, if you are listening, this is the reason that Dahlia is successful -- but one little smidgeon of feedback -- the crust could be just a little bit flakier. But, don't get me wrong -- you still have the best in town! Readers, you can even go and get a $2 mini-pie "bite" there if you don't want to buy the whole thing. Like a cupcake, but in pie form. YUM and keeps your calorie count in check as well. :)

Pros: Best Piece of Pie in Town

Cons: What's not to like about pie?

My wife and I have wanted to try Dahlia's Bakery for some time after having read the many outstanding and glowing reviews. At last, we were able to get ourselves downtown to sample the much lauded coconut cream pie and were very much disappointed. To those who rave about this product, I can only assume that you have never tasted a proper pie crust - rich, light, and flaky. The crust on this pie had the consistency and texture of dried plaster and had little flavor as well. While the filling was creamy and had an abundance of coconut, it too lacked flavor. The mini pie is 18 bucks and does not come close to being worthy of the accolades it receives. Don't bother!!

This was an amazing final stop in a recent trip to Seattle. The sandwiches (I had the apple/brie/walnut sandwich and my partner had the turkey sandwich) were among the best deli-style sandwiches we've ever eaten. The white bean soup was perfectly seasoned. The baked goods (chocolate chip cookie, oatmeal apricot cookie, fig bar and triple chocolate tart) were also perfect. A great place, with outdoor seating. My only regret is that we didn't have time to try the main lounge next door! Next time...

Pros: Location, price, quality of food

Cons: No indoor seating

I grabbed an early morning treat here just a couple of days ago. I was overwhelmed with my options, and ended up deciding on the apple dumpling. So yummy, with a nice doughy taste and nut butter hidden inside. I will definitely be back soon to check out the chocolate mint cookies and also the pistachio topped pastries. If you have not been here, and are in the neighborhood, stop on in and grab something delicious!

The coconut cream pie that is. Let's start from the bottom. The crust is a wonderful compliment to the coconut, a crispy brown crust with finely chopped nuts mixed in. The pie filling is firm but silky smooth, and packed with ribbons of coconut flakes. And the top? Why mounds of whipped cream of course, with a heavy-handed sprinkling of toasted coconut flakes, and white chocolate flakes. It's the perfect cream pie. I also bought a small piece of brown sugar cheesecake, which wasn't quite as good. I'm still deciding whether it was too salty, or just innovative. I lean toward the latter, because I did like it, but it wouldn't be suitable for everyone. Just know: If you hate the sweet-salty thing (think bacon and maple syrup), get the pie, or try a cookie. I hear they're fab!

Pros: Amazing pie, nice atmosphere and staff

Cons: A bit pricey, but a worthwhile extravagance

Everyone knows that this spot is known for it's Coconut Cream Pie, and that is Out of This World--especially since you can buy it in small "bite-size" portions to enjoy it anytime. BUT. The chocolate cookies are the best in town, I think, and that's the reason I keep coming back. They're big (plate-sized) but unlike many of the larger size, they're moist and chewy with just the right ratio of chocolate chips to make them worthwhile. My god. Entirely delicious. Do yourself a favor and have one today.

There are also a bunch of sandwiches and salads--very resonably-priced--that look yummy, but I haven't tried them yet.

Pros: chocolate chip cookies, coconut cream pie, everything else looks amazing

Cons: can be extremely crowded at lunchtime

This cute bakery is centrally located and a great place to bring visitors. They have cute mini cakes and you must try the banana cream and lemon meringue pies. It is a little expensive but well worth it!

The desserts are absolutely deeee-lish! The shortcake biscuits are to die for (but twice now I have bitten into a biscuit and found it semi-raw -- substitute chef, perhaps?)! The creme brulee is out of this world! But the staff is R-U-D-E. I go there almost every morning on my way to work and twice now they have been extremely rude just because I got there at 7:29 -- even though their open signs were out! The second time I waited outside until 7:30 and was ignored. Don't go there if you want a place to sit because there are only two tables and they are outside. Bakery is very small -- only room for maybe 3-4 people in line. The lunch sandwiches are decent. Similar to the prepackaged sandwiches at Starbucks. Good but not stellar. Tomato basil soup is good -- never had the bread, although it looks tasty.

since my office is only a couple blocks away. First, their amazing desserts. I ordered a bunch of different kinds of cookies for a holiday party, and they were all so good. Their Russian teacakes are a steal at 50cents apiece. Everything I've had there has been amazingly good. After 11am, they put out their lunch selection: soups and sandwiches. They make a great tomato soup and their sandwiches typically change every day, mostly just different variations on ham and turkey. If you get there early enough to beat the lunch crowd sometimes you can get in on their free samples. Today I had a little bit of caramel brownie...mmm. A soup and sandwich is not cheap though, almost $10 for both. Not someplace I could afford to go to every day, but I still think it's worth the money for what you get. I would highly recommend it for any special occasions.. they are very helpful getting your special order placed and box everything up very nicely.

Each time I have visited Dahlia Bakery I have been expecting wonderful warm breads or rich pastry and each time I have been disappointed! They frequently run out of virtually everything in the early afternoon and my recent Pain au Chocolat was dry and flavorless.

Whether you are looking for an afternoon treat or a nice bread to accompany dinner - Dahlia Bakery is one of the sweet finds of Seattle. Not only are the staff overly friendly and helpful, but the simplistic details of providing customized ribbon, greeting cards or a bag of swedish fish to embellish any purchase definitely reminds us why a visit to this Bakery is a sweet treat.

While I enjoy their desserts, etc, what makes the Dahlia Bakery stand out is their bread. Whether you call it Bauernbrot, Pan del Pueblo or Pain de Campagne, you find it everywhere in Europe and the Dahlia's is as good as it gets, in this country, anyway.
