Boca Pizzeria Coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for pointing out this SF Business Times article that mentioned Boca Pizzeria is planning on opening a third location in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek after the renovation is completed. Check out Boca’s lunch/dinner menu here. This will bring the total pizza restaurants near the Broadway Plaza area to three along with soon-to-open Project Pie and California Pizza Kitchen. Nice to see some new pizza options over there!

From their website:

Boca Pizzeria is an Italian inspired Pizzeria utilizing the abundance of Northern California’s seasonal ingredients, while showcasing local micro breweries and wine country’s boutique varietals. Boca Pizzeria has always been our little neighborhood gem we had in mind for years, where we can dine with our friends, family and loved ones.

Our pizzas are authentic Neapolitan style, which cooks for no more than 2 minutes in a 900 degree Italian wood burning oven, is made from double milled 00 Caputo flour. Our sauce is made of the finest San Marzano tomatoes imported from Italy. We make house-made mozzarella cheese daily.

Alert to Parents of Young Children – Skipping Banned in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek


Over the weekend Broadway Plaza posted signs in the fountain area with their Code of Conduct. Those who “refuse to comply with the Code will be asked to leave”. One point stuck out to me as a parent of a young child. Skipping is banned in Broadway Plaza. When my kid is in a good mood, he is incapable of not skipping, so I worry. If I notice him skipping while we stroll through the Plaza, should I say to him, “junior, you’re going to have to cut out the skipping; that’s against the rules, buddy.” Or should I risk getting kicked out as he merrily skips and hops about? Oh, the humanity! :)

Macy’s Garage in Broadway Plaza Closed for Renovations beginning Today


With the holiday season having finished the Macy’s parking garage in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut creek is now closed due to the massive redevelopment going on. The new multi-level parking garage next to Nordstrom opened last month and there is complementary valet parking as well but I wonder how this will affect the parking situation in downtown Walnut Creek. I may have to scout out more free street parking further away.



Dear BtCreek – Desperately Seeking Santa in Broadway Plaza


Dear BtCreek,

I’m pretty convinced that the Walnut Creek (Broadway Plaza) Santa is the real Santa and I love that my kids get their photo with him each year. I’m really sad that he doesn’t have a home in Walnut Creek for 2014, and the Pleasanton and Concord Santas are just not the same. I was too late to get into the Breakfast With Santa and I see he’ll be around the weekend before Christmas —  since you’re in the know, is that my only chance to snap a photo of my little ones with the Best Santa Ever?

Check out more details on where the Broadway Plaza Santa will be here. Not how many other opportunities there will be besides the weekend before Christmas, anyone know?


Athleta Relocating to New Broadway Plaza Spot next Fall 2015 in Walnut Creek

Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Back in October we learned that the the women’s sports clothing store Athleta opened next to Starbucks and the Tesla showroom in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek and a sign inside indicates that they will be relocating within Broadway Plaza next Fall, 2015, presumably in the soon-to-be redeveloped section across the street.
