We enjoy good food.
So we set out to make just that.

We are bakers, baristas and people who strive to make something simply delightful. It's what brings people together.

We are mindful of our French foundation.

The oldest of traditional recipes, classic techniques and pure flavors are the base of all we do. Our intent is to bring the tastes of France to Seattle for all to share.

And we invite you to join us - anytime.

Rain or shine, our doors are open to share the aromas of fresh baked goods. Come and enjoy a croissant or two with friends, family, or visitors and take in the life of Pike Place Market.

It all began in 1983...

Kristi Drake and Thierry Mougin, co-owners of Le Panier, were on hand on opening day.

Kristi and her staff in front create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, greeting regular customers with their favorites, and inviting them to try something new that the bakers have dreamed up.

Thierry is a French-trained baker and pastry chef from Normandie. He and his team of bakers have developed a selection of products that bring together French baking techniques and local, seasonal ingredients.
