If you’re only coming to this colorful little Danish bakery for one thing, it’s the Snitter - which sounds a lot like a quidditch term, but is what would result if a cinnamon roll mated with a cheese danish. Don’t think too hard about the logistics of that. Nielsen’s has been around for decades, and the pastries are why. Their marzipan almond cake is the kind of dessert that you’d buy for someone’s birthday, and then immediately eat a couple bites in your car during a red light.

For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
