Belle Pastry: An Authentic French Patisserie

Bellevue locals know that for expertly prepared French pastries, quiche, and coffee, Belle Pastry is the place to go.

The shop itself is bright and cheerful, and a line of small tables offers a pleasant place for you to enjoy a cup of coffee and sweet little treat. If you're in search of a heartier meal later in the day, know that Belle Pastry offers a line of quiches that make a nice lunch on the go, or you can pick up a freshly baked baguette to accompany your dinner at home.

Seafair Weekend!!

With the beautiful weather Washington has been having lately, it looks like we are gearing up to have one of the most exciting Seafair weekends ever!! For those that have never heard of Seafair, it is one of Washington state's premier events, which features hydroplane races, food and game booths, and our very own Blue Angel flying squad who will be performing amazing acrobatic stunts over the famous I-90 to Seattle bridge itself! The event will be running THIS weekend, and you can find all of the information, including ticket details, here: www.seafair.com

The Blue Angels alone are reason enough to not miss out on Seafair, as the roar of their engines while they dive low overheard is something everyone should experience once, however the hydroplane races regularly attract thousands as well, with their nail biting speed and pulse-pounding, neck-to-neck finishes!

If you check out the fair this weekend, we'd love to hear your experiences or see your pictures from the event in the comments below, and who knows, we may even see you there!!
