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.
Earlier this year we learned that the eyebrow threading salon iBar would be relocating from their Mercer spot a few blocks away to Lyric and they have now conveniently opened right next to Drybar.

A couple of years ago we learned that Ascona Pizza would be coming to downtown Walnut Creek in the Lyric apartment complex and although that is not happening according to the latest leasing information Blaze Pizza will be opening in this spot instead. Check out their menu here.
Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, which opened over the summer at the Lyric apartment complex in downtown Walnut Creek, has closed. It looks like this happened around the same time Momo’s closed across the street. Thanks to all who emailed about this.
From an email:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea will be closing on Sunday, March 3. Please know that if we could keep Sweetwaters open any longer, we certainly would.
We have sincerely enjoyed serving and getting to know all of our wonderful guests, employing the most amazing, hardworking and passionate staff, supporting local artists, businesses and charities, hosting meetup groups, live performances, pop-up shops, educational classes, and many other community events at Sweetwaters, and participating in many local events and charities around town.

Last year we learned that Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea would coming to downtown Walnut Creek in the new Lyric apartment complex and they have now opened. There’s seating both inside and out with a cool bear mural on one inside wall (see photo after the jump.) In addition to typical hot and cold coffee and tea they also offer a frozen slushie-esque drink with different flavors called the Ice Dragon. They even sell coffee beans, bakery items, salads, and even pup cups (for dogs). Check out their Walnut Creek menu here.
We’ve been tracking the progress of Michigan-based Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea since last autumn and as you can see in the above photo their signage is now up. Check out their menu here. Now that summer has arrived hopefully they’ll be opening very soon… 🤞
Stem Salon, located on Locust St. in downtown Walnut Creek, is relocating next month to a spacious corner spot at the corner of Bonanza St. and N. California Blvd. in the Lyric apartment complex a few blocks away.
