This little cafe across from the Heathman Hotel and the Kirkland public library has been our go-to place for coffee, dessert, and lunch-type foods for many years. The espresso drinks, made with Attibassi beans, are good and tend to be mild to moderate in strength....More

Stopped by for coffee and a quick breakfast. Coffee beans are from Italy and excellent. I had a ham and cheese panini and my wife had a baguette with avocado. Food was very good.

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
