There are so many restaurants in Walnut Creek it’s hard to keep up with which ones are opening and which ones are closing. Here a a few that have stood the test of time.
This Sicilian cafe is a San Francisco favorite and is named after the original address in the city. It is located on Locust St and is just a couple of blocks walk from our home. It is also gets a big thumbs up from my 100% Sicilian husband. He loves their seasonal authentic pastries and capuchino.

Our favorite restaurant since we moved here 23-years-ago. Nice family atmosphere, great food and service. Their garlic rolls are a must try, the piadinis are what they are known for. They have monthly seasonal options that I was enjoy.
