All About Willow Glen
If you want to see how the other half of Silicon Valley lives– meaning the Digerati who’ve decided to download a family - head south of downtown to historic Willow Glen. This picturesque, walkable community features charming residential streets and a well-planned downtown, featuring a variety of casual and outdoor restaurants, day spas and shops on Lincoln Avenue between Willow Street and Minnesota Avenue. Boutiqes range from antiques and home décor to gifts and clothing. Children’s and teen’s literature lovers must check out Hicklebee’s, a local landmark bookstore. Favorite eateries include Opa!, Willow Street Pizza, Jake’s and Siena Bistro. Petroglyph’s ceramic lounge is a popular hangout for artists of all ages.
