Larkey Market in Walnut Creek gets New Owner – New Deli and Cold Brew Coffee Coming Soon

2800 Larkey Ln, Walnut Creek

Over the weekend I dropped by Larkey Market in Walnut Creek to check out what was going on since they got a new owner. There had been some questions about their homemade sandwiches disappearing and I found out that a new deli station is in the works and once it’s ready they’ll be back to offering handmade sandwiches as well as an expanded menu including a special family chicken salad recipe, breakfast items and more specialty deli items. Online ordering will be available as well as a new Larkey Market coffee, including a proprietary cold brew. In addition to food and drink updates they want to update the aesthetics so it will feel more like a neighborhood market and deli with more tables and less like a convenience store. Check for updates on their Instagram page here.


What’s Going on with Blaze Pizza at Lyric in Walnut Creek?

Lyric, Walnut Creek

In April we learned that Blaze Pizza would be coming to The Lyric in downtown Walnut Creek but all the coming soon signs have been removed and one reader emailed that they were, “balled up in a trash can in the corner.” However, the website still has a location listed. Anyone know what’s going on? The listed address is, “1507 Locust St.” so I wonder if they’re actually opening next door in the soon-to-be-built new building? Check out their menu here.

De Afghanan “Authentic Kabob House” Opens in Downtown Walnut Creek

1372 Locust St, Walnut Creek

Patron Mexican Grill only opened this summer in downtown Walnut Creek, but a new restaurant has just taken over, called De Afghanan “Authentic Kabob House”. Although the main sign says “Now Open” when I stopped by over the weekend a hand written sign in the window said, “opening soon”. Has anyone had a chance to try this place out?
