About The Yellow Leaf

We do so much more than just cupcakes.


The Yellow Leaf is a small batch, modern micro-bakery/ cupcake boutique in Seattle’s revitalized Belltown neighborhood.


With Chef Tony Portugal leading the team, The Yellow Leaf offers an array of micro-bakery items: French macarons, cakes, pastries, desserts, cookies, and of course, gourmet cupcakes.


The name, Yellow Leaf, is an ode to the beautiful Washington Cascade Mountains … when the Evergreen state turns a blaze of yellow in the months of October and November.


For Tony and his partner Michael, the Yellow Leaf is a labor of love.  After leaving the corporate world in Los Angeles, the two ventured off to the great Pacific Northwest.  Here they took to redefining the cupcake…a little less sweet and a bit more sophisticated.  Presentation, style, and flavor are what have set The Yellow Leaf apart.

“Not only do we get to live in one of the most amazing cities in the world, we get to create new and exciting items every day, for the people we love.”
