“My new favorite place for sandwiches”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Very reminiscent of sandwiches I had in France and Italy. Great coffee and pastries combined with a warm, welcoming staff. If you are looking for healthier fare, try the Basque salad.

“My favorite coffee spot”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Delicious coffee, pastries, soups and salads. However, I really don't like the atmosphere, too sterile. The coffee is always warm, wish the decor was too!

“A Real Disappointment”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Last February I ordered a wedding cake for our son and it was a wonderful cake done on time and really perfect. Last week I ordered a birthday cake for our Grand-daughter which we were to pick up this afternoon. When we arrived at the bakery they didn't know what we were talking about and had no idea of what we wanted to pick up. They finally found our order which was specifically ordered for our 12 year old Grand-daughter, and then had no time to prepare a new cake. So they gave us a smaller, undecorated cake as a substitute. To their credit, they refunded the cost of the ordered cake, but a birthday so special as one for a 12 year old new to this country was ruined. I will not be ordering anything from this bakery again.

“A good start to the day!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

For our first morning in Kirkland on this trip we decided to go to the French Bakery on Kirkland Avenue for a breakfast of coffee and "home" baked croissant and Danish pastries. Very polite staff and food quality very good. Will certainly revisit during the remainder of our short stay.
Only downside is that seating space is limited inside the cafe. Other than this great experience.
