Delicious! Wish I had bought more. Crumpets are made to order so we waited about 15 minutes as the line was out the door. Loved the salmon and cream cheese with cucumbers!

There was a problem with credit card charging and they just turned cash only which was fine unless the cashier freaked out and got all confused and messed up my order and what she charged me and then blamed me for changing my mind --- rude much?!.... Not planning on coming back :-(

Like most places in the market this little gem is tucked away and a bit hard to find but it's so worth it. The shop itself is small and we weren't able to find a place to sit but the crumpets definitely make up for the lack of space. We had some maple, cream cheese with walnuts concoction and it... More

We went here for breakfast all 3 days that we were in Seattle. We wanted to branch out each day, but these crumpets are so good, and there are so many different varieties, that we just couldn't keep ourselves from coming back again and again. Everything is amazing on their menu. Be prepared to wait in line because this is... More

There may be a line but it is well worth it! I had never had a crumpet before and was curious. Light and airy and delicious! We got the Lemon Curd - yummy!

We are glad we found this place, because they have an awesome variety of how to pimp these lovely crumpets. Well recommended breakfast place. My favorite was the Nutella one (but that's because I am addicted to Nutella). All the other ones we tried were awesome as well. This store is still family owned and the staff in the store... More

Great little spot to get some tasty crumpets. Maple butter topping was our favorite! Prices were a little high for what you get, but this is a unique idea for a US city. Service was good and almost no wait on a Tuesday around 12:00. Worth a visit.

Tea (or coffee) and crumpets, a novel idea. If you're looking for something a little different, this is the place. Crumpets are much like English muffins only a little hardier... add a multitude of choices for toppings and you have an interesting and tasty breakfast/lunch. Their teas and coffees are very good and i recommend having a crumpet with jam... More

OK, are there crumpets good? Yes, they taste delicious, but does it make sense to pay almost five bucks for one with PB & J? I don't think so. I could have just gone to the Pike Place Chowder for a couple bucks more... Doesn't make sense to my why they cost so much. The place was small and packed... More

A must visit! Friendly staff. Ordered the tomato, pesto and ricotta crumpet and family ordered crumpet with butter and jelly. All was delicious! Was able to also purchase a pack of four crumpets to take home.
