Stopped by here and got fresh fruit pastries that were very very good. I would go here a lot if I lived in Kirkland. You can also get crepes here. I had an all cheese one with nice salad that was great!

Great place in the heart of downtown Kirkland. Nice variety of fresh pastries, excellent coffee. It's just a short walk from a park on the lake, as well as shops, bars, and restaurants.

Some will claim there are better croissants in town, but suffice to say, Aura is arguably the best on the Eastside. They're definitely channeling Julia Child, "with enough butter anything is good". Their Guava croissant, we're talking Guava here, a fruit I couldn't pick out...More
