Another skincare company, Kiehl’s, opened a couple of years ago down the block, also in Broadway Plaza. How do they compare?

Heritage Eats Coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for pointing out this Napa Valley Register article stating that the Napa-based fast casual restaurant Heritage Eats is coming to Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek. Check out their menu here and find about the Heritage Eats story here. This looks to be opening next to Boudin Bakery. Stay tuned…

Considering how crowded True Food Kitchen is all the time I’m not surprised another restaurant is opening here.

From their website:

Heritage Eats is a globally inspired, fast-fine restaurant concept serving sandwiches, salads, wraps, rice bowls, tacos & more with a focus on elevated ‘daily life’ food from the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and beyond.
