Our bakery tour continues.
Bakery #2: Kringles Bakery, Redmond.
We love this bakery! Sadly, we rarely go there because it’s really awkward to get to. Only a block or so from a nice trail, but in between two very busy streets.
We rode through the Value Village parking lot, then onto the sidewalk
and walked the bike across the crosswalk. Here’s a better picture of the crosswalk. The bakery is in the yellow house in the middle of the picture.
No bike rack, though there was this interesting feature protecting the gas meter that looked an awful lot like a staple… so I locked up to it.
Our haul: one lemon curd kringle, two chocolate chip cookies, one chocolate croissant (split between two big kids), one chocolate muffin (for Daddy), and a cup of jasmine green tea that was still too hot to drink when the kids were done eating.
We also went to the thrift store on this trip, for Halloween costumes and other things, but ran out of time for the errands I’d intended to do.
Bakery #3: Hoffman’s Fine Pastries, Kirkland
Hoffman’s is currently in downtown Kirkland, in the Park Place area, but will be moving soon as their area will be redeveloped. Park Place is actually a fine place to ride a bike. There are many cars milling about, but they mostly move slowly. The street is narrow and there are lots of people walking around.
No bike rack anywhere nearby that I know of. I wheel locked the bike on the sidewalk outside.
Our haul: one chocolate croissant (split between two big kids), one blueberry muffin (split between two babies), one more chocolate croissant (for Daddy), one cinnamon roll, and one cup of chai tea.
We also went to the park and the library on this trip.
More to come…
