The Essential Baking Company Cafes

The Essential Bakery Cafes are located in Wallingford, Madison Park, Georgetown, and Bellevue in the Pacific Northwest.

Every day we bake organic artisan breads, pastries and desserts using the highest quality ingredients and traditional techniques. We also bake high quality, all natural gluten free sliced breads, rolls and buns in a separate dedicated gluten, dairy, soy and nut free facility. We value using non-gmo and organic ingredients. Visit our neighborhood cafes in Georgetown, Wallingford, Madison Park, and Bellevue for fresh-made sandwiches, salads, soups and crepes, along with organic and fair-trade coffee and tea. Find our products in fine grocery stores throughout the Puget Sound area as well as Costco and Safeway locations nationwide.

[02/11/17]   People always ask us why we don't use Shepard's Grain flour in our loaves. Our answer is simple - It's NOT ORGANIC! #doingwhatsessential

We want to hear from you! What kinds of seasonal breads would you like to see us making?

We are sad to announce the closing of our Essential Bakery Café in Bellevue. Unfortunately, the University Bookstore whom we share a space with, is closing down their location. We hope to see you in at our Seattle locations!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Taking special orders now! #heartcakefortwo
