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.

Feeling savory today? We have several options, including this delectable spinach and feta stuffed whole wheat croissant dough. Come partake!
