It’s been a few years and now the fashion boutique XCVI has returned to Broadway Plaza near the fountain area. Previously they were here as a pop-up but I’ve been told they will be here at least a year and possibly longer.

From their website:

XCVI is about luxury, wearability, comfort. The luxury of super-soft, breathable fabrics that drape without clinging, skimming a woman’s curves, flattering her body.

The wearability of clothes that mix-and-match or work as a complete ensemble. We create clothes that can be worn every day in a thousand different ways. Clothes that feel comfortable all day long. Clothes that can be worn from day to evening, can be dressed up or down. Clothes that are versatile.

GODIVA Opens in Broadway Plaza, Soft Serve Ice Cream Available

The Belgium chocolate shop GODIVA opened recently in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. I didn’t realize that in addition to chocolates, they also offer soft serve ice cream. Considering that it was a hot day, and I am a fan of both soft serve ice cream, AND chocolate is my favorite flavor, I felt a gigantic urge to get a scoop. At $6 it’s not the cheapest cone I’ve had but you can choose a chocolate dipped waffle cone for no extra charge. As I licked the delicious ice cream (see below), I had alternating thoughts running through my mind… “mmm, this is SO good”, and “there must be 1000 calories in this thing, OMG, I need to join a cycling gym or go for a run”. They also offer chocolate dipped strawberries and a frequent buyer’s card, buy six soft serves or drinks, get one free.

The San Francisco-based, Paris-inspired clothing store Les Lunes, featuring clothing made from bamboo, has opened their first East Bay location in Walnut Creek’s Broadway Plaza next to Sur La Table. Check out their collection here.

From their website:

We spent two years designing our Signature Rayon made from Bamboo, and we continue to fine-tune it along with our knitted and woven fabrics. We chose to use fabrics made from bamboo because they are incredibly soft, have an elegant drape, and wear well. Bamboo fabrics are breathable, thermal regulating, non-irritating, and highly absorbent, wicking moisture away from the skin 4 times faster than cotton. It is long lasting, comfortable, and easier to care for than silk or wool.
