The Crumpet Shop is Seattle's first and original crumpet baking company. Founded in 1976 by Gary Lasater, he called it The United Metropolitan Improved Crumpet Baking & Punctual Delivery Company. Customers just nodded and smiled and called us The Crumpet Shop. Gary and Nancy perfected their recipes and traditions, passing them on to the next generation. You can find their son Rob baking fresh crumpets and scones everyday.
A Crumpet is an English griddle cake. It is made with simple ingredients: flour, water and yeast. They are mixed together to make a batter and poured into round rings on the griddle to cook. Crumpets are distinguished from other similar baked goods by their holes and spongy texture. After coming off the griddle, our Crumpeteers individually toast them with your choice of sweet or savory toppings to choose from.
We brew loose, whole leaf teas that you can sample in the shop and take home. We directly source our teas from regions of the world that have been producing tea for centuries: India, China, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan. Our tea is fresh and we only brew whole leaves; never dust! We offer unlimited free refills so that you may try any type!
The owner, Nancy Mcfaul, created this scone recipe back when the shop first opened its doors. They are a moist and fluffy buttermilk scone that is delicious with raspberry or strawberry preserves. We serve them by the slice or as a whole tea round to take home to share.
