Sweet Tooth Tour

Vacations are a treat in and of themselves, but when you take a vacation in Lynnwood, Washington, you can treat yourself AND treat your sweet tooth. Lynnwood boasts an abundance of unique dessert spots. According to Kim Holcomb at King5 news, “Lynnwood is the place to find waffles and ice cream… and gourmet donuts.” So whether you’re going for a traditional bakery or searching for something a bit more off the beaten path, let this Sweet Tooth Tour be your guide for indulgence when you visit.

Start your day with dessert – DONUTS!

What better way to begin a day of vacation than with dessert for breakfast? Donuts fit the bill, and with these imaginative and absolutely delicious spots to choose from, your long weekend breakfast desserts are handled. Grab a Fruity Pebbles Ring or indulge in a Bacon Maple Bar from Donut Factory. Take a trip to the Zuriverse at Zuri’s Donutz. This full-service dessert bar has some of the most creative donut flavors we’ve ever seen (think Mango Chile), and they produce dairy and gluten free imaginations as well. Breakfast is served… and so is dessert!

Unique, Photo-Op Worthy Sweets

When on vacation, you generally take a ton of pictures. These dessert stops not only offer delicious and unique sweets, the desserts themselves are almost too pretty to eat. ALMOST. Flood your Instagram feed with shots of bubble waffles from Café Kleo, Korean Bingsu (aka melt-in-your-mouth snow ice) from Lumi Dessert Café, or silken tofu from Da Dessert. Give yourself 25 minutes to wait for a Japanese souffle pancake from Sweethoney Dessert. Bring friends and order more than one flavor / topping combo so you can sample Mango, Blueberry, Matcha, Strawberry, Durian, and Coconut. We challenge you to try them all and pick a favorite. If you’re anything like us, you won’t be able to!

Cookies & Cupcakes & Cream Puffs, oh my!

Perhaps a more traditional dessert tour starts with our friends at Crumbl Cookies near the Alderwood Mall. Their rotating menu features 4-5 new cookie flavors to try, alongside their signature favorite chocolate chip. From there, head inside Alderwood Mall for a cupcake at Pinkabella Cupcake. Their rotating seasonal flavors include such stand-outs as pink lemonade, cherry cola, neapolitan and creme brûlée. You can’t go wrong! Your next stop on this mini-tour is the H Mart Plaza to get creme puffs at Beard Papa’s. The classic creme puff is an easy pick, but we are partial to the honey butter iteration. Let us know what you think when you’ve visited! Finally, stop at Rumbly in My Tumbly Pie Co. for one of their amazing pies made from scratch using only the finest ingredients.

Drinkable Dessert

We are here for the bubble tea movement (or is it a bubble tea renaissance)! You should be, too. Here are a few of our favorites.

Sharetea is a well-known international brand that serves over 100,000,000 bubble teas a year! You’ll find us in line for the QQ Happy Family Milk Tea.

Happy Lemon is located across from the H Mart. Classic bubble tea is on offer but they also have an eclectic assortment of fruit teas and a can’t-miss Fresh Lemon series!

Tobi’s Tea has a to-die-for creme brûlé pearl tea on their menu as well as an Ube Latte and Thai Milk Tea for those in your party who don’t care for boba.

Happy Lemon & Mochinut tea offering a delightful dessert experience.

It’s hard to beat a classic

Le Bon Patisserie at H Mart Plaza has a complete assortment of baked goods, from donuts and filled pastry to cream cakes and bread loaves. Rila Bakery & Café is a specialty pastry shop that offers a relaxed and comfortable environment, high-quality pastry with a great selection, and a great menu of coffee and tea to go with your dessert as well. If your palate is tired of sugar, we cannot rave more about their breakfast sandwich, The Ferry. Housemade croissant toast, soft scrambled eggs, two thick cuts of bacon, Swiss cheese, aged Gouda cheese, finished off with spicy mayo. Perhaps our next blog post should be a breakfast tour?

As you can see, whatever your sweet tooth is craving, there’s nothing sweeter than a getaway to Lynnwood, Washington.
