The wait is over as Canyon Club Brewery opened this week in Moraga and judging by a recent visit the place is absolutely packed where even two cowboys showed up! There is plenty of seating inside and out. In addition to various draft beers as can be seen on the board in the photo below they also serve five beers made on location ranging from a German Kolsch to a New World IPA. Check out their complete beer selection here. There are also plenty of food options including appetizers, salads, burgers and more. Check out their limited opening menu here.
We’re proud to offer our sessionable take on craft beer and an eclectic “Texasfied” gastro pub food menu. Experience the true biergarten life with more than half our seating outside. And the beer; our CCB 7-barrel brewing system enables us to build a tradition of innovation and creativity. All this, set in the backdrop of the Moraga hills. Check us out, enjoy brunch on the weekends, dinner every night and take a crowler and some merch home!
Thanks to all who sent word that Black Angus Steakhouse closed in Pleasant Hill recently after 44 years. According to their goodbye notice a proposed hotel development is planning to open there. Due to a fire last year they had temporarily closed but reopened last May.
According to the latest leasing information the spot at Main Street Plaza in Walnut Creek where Sunrise Bistro is located is available for lease. Word on the street is a possible closing next year but apparently they may relocate to smaller locations instead. Check out their menus here.

Last December we learned that the cafe Bambu closed at The Vineyard shopping center in Concord and thanks to a reader for sending word (and photo) that Milk Tea Lab has opened there. Check out their menu here.
Milk Tea Lab presents the utmost modernization of the booming bubble tea culture. We aim to create a space for young kids to enjoy themselves whether it’s to grab a bite, study or hang out with friends. We have a popular collection of board games which are personally collected, from all over Asia for you to enjoy. These games are so exclusive that many are not even sold in the states or available online!
Joe & the Juice opened recently at the Park Plaza Shops in Lafayette where Squirrel’s Coffee Shop used to be. In addition to drinks they also offer sandwiches and yogurt. Check out their menu here. I heard they tried to be edgy so wasn’t surprised that all three employees bore plenty of tattoos. I asked one employee whether tattoos were required to work there and he was speechless for a moment before replying that they weren’t. Out of curiosity I’ll have to drop by another time to see if there are tattoo-less employees.
