Best Bakeries in Spokane
There is something amazing about that moment you bite into a sweet, decadent, rich baked treat. Your taste buds rejoice as the sweet flavors wash over you and you can't help but smile as you savor your treat.
Baked goods are comfort, they are love, they are something we all grow up hoping for more of. As an adult, I have a huge appreciation for anyone who can make baked goods that not only taste amazing but look amazing too.
I love baking! I have a ton of dessert recipes we have shared with you over the years. One thing I can say is I have to work to make them look amazing. It is not ingrained in me to create fine desserts I am much more of a comfort food dessert girl.
Diving into this guide to the best bakeries in Spokane I wanted to showcase both beautiful epic pastries and comfort desserts that make you think about family meals. Each of these bakeries offers something that made us smile, made our taste buds rejoice, or offered something unique and must try.
Made with Love Bakery
Location - West Central/Kendall Yards
Bakery Type - Comfort food desserts
I found Made with Love Bakery one morning while playing around on Instagram. I was looking for fun new bakeries and restaurants we hadn't had a chance to visit and came across photos of Made with Love Bakery's sweet treats.
I am beyond happy to say that the sweet baked goods not only live up to how good they look in photos they are better. Hello yum!!!
This super cute small bakery produces all of its products in house. They are located in a neighborhood surrounded by cute older homes. This tiny bakery produces amazing baked goods including cookies, pop-tarts, scones, and cakes.
They also have a rotating selection of gluten-free baked goods.
Baked Goods you need to try!
Maple Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tart
Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle Cookie
Chocolate Chip Cookies - This may be my favorite chocolate chip cookie in all of Spokane! It was so dang delicious
You can check out the Made with Love Bakery Instagram stories daily to see what is on the menu. I would suggest going in early if there is something specific you need in your life! The day we went they had made an epic red velvet cake and it was sold out by 9 am.
Made with Love Bakery Address - 2023 W Dean Ave, Spokane
Phone - (509) 919-0041
Location - Spokane Valley
Dessert Type - French patisserie
I am going to admit that I pronounced MiFlavour wrong for months. I tried to give it a French twist and sound fancy when I told my husband we needed to go there. Then one day we were there and I heard a staff member pronounce the name and well I was wrong and then some.
The correct pronunciation is "MY Flavor" not the way I was saying it " me flavoooooooor" which is probably not really a thing but sounded great in my head.
Let's be real though you did not come to this Bakery Spokane guide to read about me mispronouncing words you came here to learn about the best desserts Spokane has to offer. Well, MiFlavour is one of our favorites. They consider themselves a modern French bakery.
Everything is made from scratch with fine ingredients. The moment you walk into the bakery you can tell how much time and energy went into creating each dessert.
They are very upfront on what they do and do not make within the bakery even putting a list on their website. You will not find the following items at MiFlavour - Scones, Cupcakes, Eclairs, Cream Puffs, Pies, Rustic Bread, Muffins, Sugar Cookies, or Brownies. Don't worry if you are looking for these items we have recommendations for them included in this guide.
What they do make is amazing and you will want to buy more than you think you want because trust me it is a sad moment when the MiFlavour box is all of a sudden empty.
You do not want to miss their Macarons! This is the go-to place for Macarons in Spokane because they are amazing! For a fun twist make sure to try a Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich! Don't miss the huckleberry Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich to taste a truly local flavor.
Other not to be missed bakery items include:
MIA- Fresh fruit tart displayed on a bed of delicate vanilla diplomat cream.
Creme Brulee - Topped with a sugar dome!
Unique Macarons - Throughout the year MiFlavour releases fun-shaped macarons including panda bears named KiKi with a cake batter filling, Mr. snowmen with a smooth egg nog chai buttercream, unicorns, and bunnies named Milly and Lilly.
If you need a special occasion cake they also do custom cake orders and their cakes are amazing.
The owners even started a second business with Volonti Gelato! Helllo yum! We may have to work on a Spokane Ice Cream Guide just for the excuse to try more flavors of Gelato.
MiFlavour Address - 3403 E Sprague Ave, Spokane, WA 99202
Phone - (509) 315-4516

Locations - Downtown, Northtown Mall, Spokane Valley Mall, North Spokane
Dessert Type - Cupcakes and other baked goods
Sweet Frostings Blissful Bakeshop offers a rotating menu of delicious fresh-baked cupcakes that never sit in their bakery longer than 48 hours. Their North Spokane location is one of my favorite places to take a bit of me-time with a great book. The inside is comfortable, cute, and relaxing making it the perfect place to get a chai tea and a cupcake and slow down for a few minutes or an hour.
Cupcake Flavors not to miss:
Salted Caramel - I am going to be honest and admit that I would face plant in a bucket of the Sweet Frosting Salted Caramel Buttercream any day of the week. The cupcake is honestly just a holder for the epic frosting for me and the salted caramel cupcake with salted caramel sauce baked in it is always good.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Decadence - My husband swears this is the best cupcake he has had anywhere in Spokane.
French Toast Cupcake - Cinnamon French vanilla cake with maple buttercream and crispy bacon on top.
Orange Cream - Orange cake made with fresh-squeezed orange juice and orange zest, topped with a fresh orange buttercream

How we picked the Best Spokane Bakeries
We have lived in Spokane for over 20 years and try to visit as many local restaurants/bakeries as we can. When we created this goal we re-visited all of our favorite bakeries and tried to find local Spokane bakeries we hadn't had a chance to visit yet.
We only share the bakeries that we loved. If we visited a bakery and the baked goods were not amazing, the customer service wasn't great, or there were any issues you will not find them on this list. That doesn't mean that a bakery not on this list is bad we may not have made it there yet.
We try to re-visit bakeries that were not great the 1st time to see if they were just having a bad day. The bakeries do not know that we are coming in and do not produce special treats just for us. We visit as local residents and try to sample a variety of baked goods so we can help you visit the best bakeries in Spokane, Washington.
This epic guide to the bakeries in Spokane will be continually updated as we try new bakeries and find more sweet treats in Spokane and the surrounding area.
Let us know if we missed your favorite bakery!
