The salon was founded by Vanessa Schneider, a Miramonte High School parent. Familiarity with the area and love of the Moraga-Orinda community gave her the inspiration and strength to open Olivia Nail Bar. This upscale nail salon will bring friends, neighbors, and families together to pamper themselves, de-stress from the day, and spend quality time with each other.

Exciting news for Moraga as the popular Rockridge and Emeryville Asian fusion eatery Noodle Theory is planning on opening a third location in the Rheem Valley shopping center in Moraga later this year after Graze closes sometime in June. Check out the Rockridge lunch menu here, and Emeryville Provisions menu here. I’ve been to their Rockridge spot several times which was amazing and apparently the chicken wings in Emeryville are the best so I hope they will offer that in Moraga as well.
Why Moraga of all places? According to the Graze owner the Noodle Theory owners live in Moraga so thankfully locals won’t need to head for Lafayette, Walnut Creek and beyond for top-tier cuisine anymore.

Amazing news as sleepy Moraga of all places is getting a new brewery / restaurant called Canyon Club Brewery. Located in a former bank sharing an ample parking lot with Orchard Supply Hardware near the intersection of Moraga Way and Moraga Rd, it’s expected to open later this summer. The triangular modern architecture with plenty of outdoor space will be a fabulous showcase for what could prove to become a destination spot bringing in not only locals but others from around Lamorinda and beyond. In addition to a restaurant and on-site brewery, stay tuned for more exciting details to come!
Starbucks is going to reopen very soon, possibly later this week, a short hop from their existing spot in Rheem Valley shopping center in Moraga. Although it’s not a Reserve this one will have a drive thru! The updated interior looks way more spacious as well.
