“This place is hiding in a small corner of Bellevue but it is so unique. The presentation of the ice cream and the taste is absolutely out of this world. I want to say this is the best ice cream I’ve ever tried.” – Phansa C.
“I went to Van’s salon off of a referral from a close family friend. I’m very cautious when it comes to anyone touching my face or hair but after meeting Van the first time and seeing her talent I was confident in her work.” – J.W.
“Feed a man some cheese, and he’s full for a day. Teach him how to make cheese and he will be cheesy for life! I loved my cheesemaking class at River Valley Cheese. The owner has the perfect personality for teaching in an entertaining, humorous, way. I love her sass.” – Morgan N.
“Holy mother of all that is great in this world! The salads were fresh and creative but definitely approachable and the sandwiches were grilled and melty and the stew had a complex and delicious flavor to it with a little kick! This is definitely high end comfort food!” – Julie C.
“Today I wanted something different and I picked their new Lavender Vanilla Latte. I got a smaller size than usual because I usually dislike eating lavender. I am honestly surprised that I like this. It tastes nice without reminding me of a spa candle.” – Sonali O.
“What else can be said about this Seattle institution. As far I know it’s the ice cream shop that started bringing gourmet ice cream to the masses. I’ve been going here for years and I’ve never had anything less than an amazing experience.” – Andrew C.
“By far my favorite spot to get macarons! The staff here is so pleasant and they have such a great selection of flavors to choose from. The unicorn and coconut are two of my favorite flavors but honestly, I love them all.” – Jaime A.
“Wow! Not only are these baked goods insanely delicious, but the customer service goes above and beyond any place I’ve experienced in years. The owner (I suck at names, sorry) was an absolute joy of an individual…even at 6am!! Being my first time there, I could tell instantly this person took an immense amount of pride in her product and establishment.” – Marco L.
“Great concept behind this lovely pastry shop and I love it! The owner’s passion is to create pastries that are healthier because her father had cancer and had to watch what he eats. She studied in London and got inspired from European pastries.” – Miss Ninja
“I’ve been a fan of Jujubeet Cafe for a few years now since I discovered them in SLU. I love their juices, salads, but mostly their açaí and pitaya bowls! I was glad to discover the Main Street location in Bellevue was right on my drive back home from Soul Cycle.” – Steph G.
“Hollywood Baked Goods is a phenomenal baking company. I have tried a few of their items and am always blown away. Everything is absolutely delicious and I’m positive the main ingredient in all their recipes is LOVE . You won’t be disappointed. My favorite cupcake is the one with apples and caramel.” – Celina T.
“It seems almost redundant to [give] Cafe Juanita five-stars, but it’s a truly great experience. We tried the tasting menu with wine pairings and were amazed and delighted with each course.” – Matt N.
