Looking for great Mexican food with a modern twist? A fun, casual atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor seating? You can't go wrong with Cactus, located on Downtown Kirkland's charming Park Lane. Always great food and the nicest servers.
Columbia Athletic Club
We adore this club for its state of the art equipment, friendly staff, and awesome location. All the cardio machines have HD screens with tons of channels (my faves: Food Network and HGTV of course :) There's also a swimming pool, basketball court, and Kids' Club! CAC is located at the north end of Market St.
So much fun for breakfast (and with healthy/light menu options like an egg-white veggie scramble or simply eggs and sliced tomatoes). George's has been around since 1976! Get a window booth and bring the kids!
Kirkland Performance Center
We are so lucky to have this amazing theater in the heart of downtown! KPC has a great variety of performances each year, including several hour-long kids' performances, part of the StoryBook Theater series.
Oscar & Co. We love this sweet corner shop on Market Street filled with expertly curated vintage finds as well as stylish new gift items and accessories. The owner, Dawn Oscar, is a delight and master picker! We especially love that it's so well-edited - just the good stuff!
Santorini Greek Grill
Be careful, this place will have you addicted after one visit! The salads are impossibly fresh, the sauces perfection, and they are very generous with the feta cheese. Our favorite: the chicken plate. Totally authentic, right down to the ownership. Santorini is a great stop for lunch or dinner any day.
This adorable kids' store features modern and stylish toys, books, and decor for little ones. A great place to treat your own kiddos, or to find a fabulous gift! Simplicity ABC is just down the street from Cactus on Park Lane.
The most delicious gelato you've ever tasted! Sirena has a super friendly staff and a great location on Park Lane. Enjoy seasonal favorites plus the classics like Vanilla Bean and Dutch Chocolate.
For live music and a cool atmosphere, head for drinks at Irish pub Wilde Rover located on Central Way. Bonus: the food's good too!
We are also super excited about the upcoming Kirkland Urban!
