Seattle has become a cupcake town; you can (and I have) had entire conversations debating the merits of various cupcake shops. Cupcake Royale is one of the best, and definitely worth a visit. They have rotating monthly flavors (pictured is the Velvet Elvis peanut butter and banana), good coffee, and amazingly rich cake-flavored ice cream — sample a few to find your favorite. They also have a wide range of cute t-shirts, travel mugs, stickers, and even baby clothes with snappy sayings that make great gifts for folks back home. Cupcake Royale has a bunch of locations around Seattle, but this downtown one will be the easiest to get to if you're near Pike Place Market or Pioneer Square.
