Kirkland Favorites

Some of our favorite places Downtown Kirkland...

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.

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.

Dooley's Dog House If you are searching for healthy and all-natural food and treats for your pet, you can stop: Simply go to Dooley's Dog House on Market Street. Kind, helpful staff and a fabulous product assortment. You may even meet a pet you want to adopt!

If you love wine (or even if you don't), try Purple for lunch or dinner. Located in Parkplace, there is something for everyone on the menu. Our personal favorites: the Wild Salmon Sandwich, Cranberry Chicken Salad, and Margherita Pizza... Yum!

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. 

Simplicity ABC
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.

Sirena Gelato
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.

Wilde Rover
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! 

For serious butt-kicking, train at the XGYM. The program includes 2 personal training sessions per week for about 20 minutes. These guys (and gals) are re-shaping Kirkland one day at a time! Conveniently located on Central Way.
