Brix Wine Bar in Juanita is one of the reasons that the Juanita area is HOT. They have a great menu, terrific atmosphere, cheerful waitstaff, killer Sangria and Mac and Cheese on the Happy Hour offerings. Try them out for Happy Hour on a Sunday afternoon; not crowded and a blast to visit with good friends.
St. James Espresso is a new coffee shop across from the Kirkland Performance Center and they are what Starbucks once was- unique and customer oriented. A very confortable and spacious space with nice furniture, free WiFi and loads of magazines to read, books and toys for the kids.Very popular with the laptop crowd and open later into the evening ( are you listening Tully's?). Check them out. Great coffee too.
