While fall brings an onslaught of everything pumpkin, apple and maple, for us it also brings on the desire to consume all the baked goods. And yes, we will consume baked goods in the flavors of pumpkin, apple and maple - we're certainly not picky. So if you too are in search of all the baked goods the South Sound has to offer, here is where we would recommend: 

Corina Bakery & Bistro located in Tacoma between the stadium and theater district has been a staple to the community for a long time with their large assortment of baked goods, all baked fresh and from scratch daily.  From their specialty cheesecakes ranging in flavor from chocolate peanut butter cup to the grasshopper (mint cheesecake) to their lemon bars and banana pudding to their large assortment of beautifully designed  specialty cakes, it's all delicious! If you're looking to stop by for a cup of coffee and a selection from their case that is always possible. You can also order a whole cheesecake or cake ahead of time for an event, or just because everyday should include dessert. Before visiting check out their large assortment here: 

Corina Bakery & Bistro., 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday; p.m., Saturday; 9 a.m.-3p.m. Sunday., 602 Fawcett Avenue, Tacoma. 

Next up on our list is Hess Bakery and Deli, a long time Lakewood bakery in business since 1968 and specializing in German baked goods made from scratch. Their speciality and something you truly can't miss out on are their pretzels, which are the perfect addition to your fall football Sundays. Their bakery is also chalked full of delicious homemade breads such as German Rye, Pumpernickel and an assortment of whole grain breads. And of course if you're looking for something sweet they have that too, with their sweet pretzel options as well as Tortenboden. 

Hess Bakery and Deli., 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday; 9:00 a.m.- 4 p.m., Saturday. 6108 Mt. Tacoma Drive SW, Lakewood.

Honestly when doesn't a cinnamon roll sound good - we really can't think of a time. That's why the next bakery on our list is, Cinna-A-Girls located in Lacey. Specializing in various types of cinnamon rolls such as regular, pumpkin and wait for it...bacon. While you visit you of course have to pick up a cinnamon roll they also have other dessert options such as scones and homemade pop-tarts. Currently they're only open on the weekends, but it's a must add to your fall weekend list. 

Cinn-A-Girls., 8:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m., Friday; 8:00 a.m.-4:00p.m., Saturday; 8:00 a.m.-2:00p.m., Sunday., 730 Sleater Kinney Rd SE Ste, Lacey. 

Our last bakery suggestion is for all our lovers of croissants, which we fully include ourselves in. But seriously if you love croissants, don't walk, run to Left Bank Pastry in Olympia. When we say they have a large selection of croissants, we're talking, almond, berry, chocolate, cinnamon, ham and cheese and more! All equally delicious, but if we had to choose we definitely love the almond. Along with their croissants this bakery also has a selection of cakes, puff pastry and quiche.

Left Bank Pastry,. 7:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m., Monday-Friday., 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday. 1001 4th Avenue East, Olympia.
