Plaza Escuela, Walnut Creek
In February, we learned that Nick the Greek would be coming to Plaza Escuela in downtown Walnut Creek, and their signage is now up and will be opening August 25th. I enjoyed the gyro bowl I tried in Concord and look forward to this place opening soon. Check out their menu here.

Thanks to everyone who sent word that Napa Valley-based Model Bakery is opening their largest location yet in downtown Walnut Creek where La Fogata Mexican Bar & grill used to be. According to this SF Chronicle article, they “will sell more than a dozen varieties of organic artisan bread, pastries and cookies, like the absurdly rich chocolate rads, alongside espresso drinks utilizing a custom roast from Seattle’s Cafe Vita.” Check out their pastries here, cookie and desserts here, and breakfast and lunch photos here. Look for a late 2022 opening. Has anyone tried their English muffins? Are they out-of-this-world delicious?
From their website:
Today’s Model Bakery specializes in artisan breads made with organic stone ground flours and the highest quality ingredients as well as a complete range of pastry products.
The Veranda, Concord
From their website:
Along with twists on American classics, there will be plenty of global influences as well, using only sustainable and mostly local seafood. Longport FC’s diverse menu features a wood burning grill for steaks and chops, fresh organic salads, amazing raw bar, and an excellent, well thought out craft beer, wine, and fresh cocktail program.
The perfect mural for World Famous Hotboys in downtown Walnut Creek.
405 Railroad Ave, Danville
A couple of years ago, we learned that Hopstone Cafe would replace Homegrown Sustainable Sandwiches in Danville, but these days it looks empty with no signage in front. Anyone know what’s going on with this place?
