Kids are wild for the new Coyle’s Bakeshop in Greenwood

Five minutes after Rachael Coyle launched her inaugural Coyle’s Bakeshop pop-up inside Fremont community cookbook store Book Larder, people were asking when she’d open a brick-and-mortar location. Two years later, with help from more than $33,000 raised via Kickstarter, lovers of Coyle’s millionaire's shortbread, butter sablé cookies and salted caramels got their wish when Coyle’s Bakeshop opened its permanent Greenwood digs.

“The pop-up was so much fun, but logistically really challenging,” Coyle says. “We had to bake remotely and bring everything in, so it meant starting even earlier and dealing with packaging, transporting and setting up a space from scratch every time. Now we walk 10 steps from the ovens to pastry case.”

Coyle says neighbors from Greenwood and Phinney Ridge have been “really supportive and encouraging and so fast to embrace” the two-month-old bakery on the corner of North 83rd Street and Greenwood Avenue North.

A former pastry chef at downtown fixture Le Pichet, Coyle says she also loves having proper tables and seats — sans Internet access to encourage conversations. “We don't have Wi-Fi, so we get to be a place where people come to relax and enjoy themselves. The space has already become a place where people take their whole family, meet friends, read a book,” she says. “It's wonderful, and I feel really lucky.”

The most popular items, including anything made from croissant dough, can sell out in the morning. Coyle says her currant cream scones, served warm from the oven throughout the day, also are gaining popularity. Buttery and golden, the scones are even better with a smear of homemade jam. “ They come fresh from the oven throughout the day and it makes such a difference,” Coyle says. “I feel like lots of people have never had a fresh scone, and it's such a new experience.”

Coyle will roll out additional menu items in the coming months, including quiche, salads and more savory options for light lunches, plus iced tea and cold-brew iced coffee when the weather warms up. But whatever the weather, Coyle says the bakeshop’s hot chocolate, made with homemade chocolate sauce and topped with an oversized marshmallow, is the most popular drink for kids.
