Best Bakery in Capitol Hill: High Five Pie
FA Rating: FF
Espresso Rating: 8/10
On my second to last day in Seattle, my friend Katie told me that I absolutely had to go to High Five Pie. I made my way there for breakfast and coffee.
I was greeted my case after case of incredible-looking pastries that I absolutely had to try! Unfortunately, I could only eat this one meal there. Fortunately, I let myself get two things.
|The nice lady working there heated up my lemon blueberry pie for me. Look at how beautiful it is.|
The blueberry filling was so good, though I'm into a higher crust : filling ratio than this. I wanted the pie to be like the pie at The Blue Stove in Williamsburg.
|She also heated up my buttermilk biscuit. Also beautiful. Oh butter.|
It was crispy on the outside and so fluffy on the inside, buttery through and through.
|Espresso 8/10 - creamy, restrepo, not too bitter, awesome to pair with pie!|
The place was clean and large and nice, though I wish the seats had backs. It's the only thing that makes this place not awesome to work or study in.
There are two single person unisex, clean, and spacious restrooms.
|Those cookies look like they would just melt upon mouth arrival.|
|I want to have those fries' babies.|
|The also had fold overs for individual servings. And if you're like me, you'd probably prefer those cuz they do have a higher crust : filling ratio.|
It probably wasn't the best way to start my day (though it was the last day or my vacation, so fuck you), but on Fridays and Saturdays they're open till 3am. Obviously you absolutely must get blitzed and then come drunkenly gorge on pie with friends. What could be better?
