Discover why downtown Willow Glen is known as “San Jose’s Local Treasure.” With historic homes and charming tree-lined streets, Willow Glen is the perfect way to spend an afternoon browsing shops or dining at a sidewalk cafe.
The quiet and beautiful avenues lead to a bustling and lively walk featuring delicious restaurants and family-friendly shops. Grab a delicious brunch and a mimosa at The Table before heading to the charming Powell’s to indulge in your chocolate desires. Then, browse through an incredible selection of eclectic shops including Hicklebee’s, the local landmark children’s bookstore. Don’t be surprised when you find some treasures of your own. Another local favorite is Bertucelli’s La Villa Delicatessen, which specializes in handmade ravioli, sandwiches and desserts.
Plan your visit around the time Willow Glen has its annual summer festival, Dancin’ on the Avenue, featuring local wines, musicians and food. Not only will you have a toe-tapping good time, but you’ll also get to experience the diversity and delicacies of San Jose!
