Essential Bakery Cafe uses fresh, organic, fair trade, and local ingredients. There are four locations in the Seattle area (Wallingford, Georgetown, Bellvue, and Madison), all serving breakfast and lunch. They are kid friendly, even offering a children's happy hour consisting of hot chocolate or milk and cookies. They have soups, salads, sandwiches, and yummy treats. Everything has that comforting homemade flavor, and the atmosphere is quite cozy. This is a great place to grab some fuel before heading out on an adventure.
