St Clouds Named Best Pancakes in Seattle

St Clouds

Seattle Weekly has released their Best of Seattle awards for 2013, and with the votes in and ballots cast, our Madrona favorite St Clouds was awarded best pancakes in Seattle! There are so many things on the St Clouds breakfast menu that deserve an award, (like Grandma Hazel’s delicious sour cream coffee cake made fresh daily!) their pancakes have clearly won the attention of early risers across town. They are perfectly fluffy yet dense, and can be ordered with chocolate chips in them or blueberries on top- YUM! Congrats to St Clouds, we’re so glad a neighborhood restaurant made the Best of Seattle list!

Madrona Cupcake Royale Offering Ice Cream To Go

As we raved about yesterday, Madrona really loves their ice cream, and we love Molly’s, but if you’re in the mood for something new, the folks at Cupcake Royale are launching ice cream in all 6 of their store fronts around Seattle.

The delectable cupcake gurus are now offering flavors such as “cupcakes n cream” as their signature flavor, and will have many other unique flavors such as their “whiskey maple bacon crack” made with locally sourced Woodinville Whiskey, and Zoe’s meats bacon, “Bonanza” made with bananas homemade brownies and caramel, burnt caramel and sea salt, and red velvet cupcake; yum!

The newest store front is located at 108 pine street downtown and will open this Saturday, but until then will have a food cart outside the store front serving scoops from noon-8pm. The Ballard, Capitol Hill, and Bellevue locations will have scoops, shakes cones and sundaes on their menu, but Madrona will simply be offering pints to go. Molly’s is still the best place to find a scoop, but if you’re getting it to go, pop into Cupcake Royale and see what they have to offer.
