Sweet Love: A Dessert Crush on The Night Kitchen, Seattle


Like, OMG. There are so many reasons to love the very idea of newly-opened The Night Kitchen in Seattle. There's the fact that they are, literally, a night kitchen--their hours are 6 p.m. - 9 a.m. (closed Monday night - Tues. morning). There's the fact that they're serving up creative, gourmet yet homey dishes--at very affordable prices.


But most imporantly, there's the dessert menu. Since none of the Cake Gumshoes have yet visited, for now let's just review the dessert list ("served anytime") and dream (copied directly from their site):
