Had breakfast here. Wonderful pastries. Had a ham & cheese crepe that was fabulous. Everything looked fabulous. They do not take American Express, just fyi.

Perfect spot to have breakfast and coffee overlooking a small sculpture garden with patio tables outside or in, across the street from the Heathman Hotel. Delicious bakery goods, croissant was light and filled with cheese eggs and ham. Would return!

A great place to visit for a perfect latte and a chocolate almond croissant. Plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the Sun on a warm day

We went to this bakery for breakfast almost every day we stayed in Kirkland and loved it. The latte was supurb (lovely latte art as well), and my husband loved their fresh bear claws, but i fell in love with their crepes and savory croissants...More

Was more impressed with the coffee than some of the bakery items, but those we have were still very good. Service was average.

Good Coffee-- better than Starbucks, charming place, and pastries. Did I mention pastries? Come early if you want to try the cream cheese and fruit croissants. Some say the marionberry is the way to go. I love it, but I may prefer the plum. Raspberry...More

Definitely not authentic French pastries! The name of the bakery is misleading. Croissant was not flaky or buttery. Dried out. Overpriced. Weak coffee.

a busy little place with delicious and affordable breakfast that is right across the street from The Heathman.

While attending a conference at the next door hotel, we visited this coffee / bakery quite often. The coffee and baked goods were very good, and we found ourselves returning on each break period over three days.

It is a small place, more cafe than bakery. They have great ham & cheese scrambles, and the coffee is wonderful!
