Cafe Trophy Opens Today at The Bravern
Exciting New Concept from Trophy Cupcakes & Party
700 110th Avenue Northeast, Suite 195 in The Shops at The Bravern
Monday - Saturday: 7a.m. - 9 p.m.
Sundays: 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Trophy Cupcakes & Party has a new concept in Bellevue: a grown-up bakery-cafe-champagne bar that offers sweet and savory treats from morning till night. They’ve moved from their small shop on the second floor of The Bravern and relocated into the beautiful new location in the southwest corner of the first floor.
The cafe offers Trophy’s award-winning cupcakes, of course, as well as a gorgeous array of French-style pastries.
The morning menu includes housemade granola and yogurt parfaits with Ellenos yogurt, as well as quiches. Lunch brings savory puff pastries and spreads with grilled flatbread, plus the quiches stick around. There are sandwiches too, like a croissant BLT, a turkey sandwich with old-school pimiento cheese, and The Frenchy, a classic ham sandwich with cornichons on a buttered baguette. Salads too: a Kale Caesar with croissant croutons, the Trophy Cobb, and owner Jennifer Shea’s favorite beet salad.
At night, bountiful cheese and charcuterie platters are served on handmade olivewood boards and some additional small plates make an appearance.
The wine and beer list, curated by Marc Papineau of Bar Ferd’nand, highlights family-owned domains, leaning toward a more natural style of production with a special attention to grower/producer Champagnes. There’s even Prosecco on tap!
There’s also a market section of the cafe, complete with an impressive wine selection as well as Jennifer’s favorite baking ingredients, grab-and-go lunch items, and a lovely selection of gourmet picnic items like chocolate, cheese, charcuterie, and olives
