Nielsen's Pastries

Since 1965, Nielsen's Pastries has been bringing authentic Danish pastries to the people of Seattle. This small shop is a hidden gem in the heart of Seattle, just blocks from the Space Needle. Come for your morning coffee, a variety of fresh and homemade lunch items, or an afternoon cake or pastry.

Drizzle getting you down? Butter, cinnamon and sugar tend to do the trick! #nielsenspastries #cinnamondanish #danish #pastriesfordays #rainydayblues

Life is all about balance. Tomato coconut curry soup, accompanied by a butterflake roll and topped off with a slice of apple pie. One of our best customers, age 92, says the key to long life is staying positive and eating what makes you feel good 😊 #nielsenspastries #92andstillgoingstrong #pie #soup #rainydays #fallfood #seattle #seattleeats
