Ba Bar Launches Breakfast Menu

Capitol Hill— Breakfast, they say, is the most important meal of the day. Well, beginning tomorrow, Ba Bar will do its part to make sure you have a successful start to the day.  Chef Eric Banh has created a breakfast menu that has something for everyone – including a daily selection of housemade pasties from Ba Bar’s talented pastry chef, Karen Krol.

Krol, who has been quietly making world-class pastries at Ba Bar for the last year, is a graduate of Chicago’s French Pastry School. She spent time honing her skills at NoMi at the Park Hyatt, North Pond Restaurant, Vanille Patisserie, and Trump International Hotel and Tower before landing in Seattle.

Coffee and pastries are available daily beginning at 7am. Pastries are made fresh daily and may include: Croissants (Ham and Gruyere, Spinach and Feta, Twice Baked Almond, and Plain), Quince Danish, Seasonal Fruit Danish, Seasonal Fruit Jalousie, Quiche, Huckleberry Financiers, Specialty Tea Cakes, and a variety of French Macarons.
