THE HOLIDAY PEAR
It’s the always-awaited holiday classic–
the sweetest, creamiest pear you’ll ever
eat. (So much so, in fact, you can scoop it
with a spoon.) Buy a box for the holiday
hostess, and an extra flat for yourself, too.
Savor this Southern classic, featuring four layers of cinnamon spice cake packed with banana, pineapple, and pecans, and finished generously with our famous browned-butter penuche icing.
Ooey, gooey, crunchy, and sweet, it’s the cookie of your dreams. Seattle’s legendary chocolate chip cookie is more chocolate than cookie, and it’s served warm all day long.
WASHINGTON APPLE CIDER
Crafted from farm-fresh apples plucked
from the orchard and pressed at the height
of ripeness, this autumn classic is crisp
and refreshing served cold, or cozy and
comforting sipped hot.
Stretched each morning as high as our cheesemongers can reach, this mozzarella’s signature soft texture and mild flavor will leave you wanting more.
ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Three generations of growers harvest the ripe organic olives right before they are cold-extracted and bottled, making it Extra Virgin.
DUNGENESS CRAB CAKES
The quintessential Northwest crab cake.
Freshly made in-store from real West
Coast Dungeness, with a light panko
breadcrumb crust to give it that crispy
texture on the outside.
These high-quality birds are seasoned to perfection before making their way into the in-store flame rotisseries, where they emerge hot and fresh throughout the day.
Our search for the perfect egg took us to a local farm that invests in environmentally-friendly practices. These large Grade AA organic brown eggs are delivered fresh to stores twice a week.
PRIME RIB SANDWICH
Hand-carved to order, this satisfying
sandwich is piled high with perfectly
pink, flame-roasted prime rib from
Painted Hills Natural Beef, a heralded
Rich and complex with a beautiful, thick consistency, our authentic balsamic hails directly from Modena, Italy. Drizzle on everything, even ice cream.
Like a salad bar, it’s fully customizable. Build a bowl of real Hawaiian-style poke with favorites like Spicy Ahi or the Shrimp & Mango Salad.
Our take on the British classic starts with a buttery pastry crust filled with a layer of raspberry jam, followed by extra-rich frangipane and finished with sliced almonds and powdered sugar.
