Aside from Costco, Deru Market is the greatest thing to ever come out of Kirkland. Smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood, it has a cool-but-not-fancy look and really good food. The menu’s made up of locally sourced ingredients that go into their wood-fired pizza, sandwiches on housemade focaccia (get a loaf to bring home), herbal iced tea infusions, a shockingly great salad, and a few rotating seasonal entrees. It’s a fun spot for a casual outdoor summer dinner or a candlelit wintertime date, and the only way to do it wrong is by not getting a slice of Deru’s enormous layer cakes. The coconut and the dark chocolate salted peanut butter are their best flavors, and they’re so good that you’ll want to press your face up to the glass display to whisper goodbye afterwards.
