The only question is why hasn’t anyone else in Seattle done this before now. Or have they? Such a seemingly obvious combination of two classic foods, loved by hipster and red-stater alike.
Whether or not they’re first to market with the bacon cupcake, Seattle Coffee Works—on Pike between 1st and 2nd—has them today. I ate one. It was forced on me. I liked it.
Seattle Coffee Works is experimenting with all kinds of new cupcake varieties, and plans a free coffee and cupcake day in the near future to launch the new cupcake line. Bad timing? Here’s to hoping they can withstand the cupcake bubble, because they still make the consistently best cup of espresso in downtown Seattle.
