This Kinko's was conveniently located on the corner of a shopping center with ample parking. A Kinko's card is required to use their copy machines. For a first time user it was a little confusing as there was no employee close by to readily ask for assistance. The store was not well staffed during an early evening weekday visit and customer support/service was minimal.
Raymundos is located near the busy intersection of Fremont and Sunnyvale Saratoga. The beautiful red carnations purchased on Valentines Day were exceptional. They lasted for over two weeks. Similar grade carnations at other florists would have been priced higher.
Uncle Wong's is a neighborhood restaurant serving Chinese food for many years. The menu offers a good selection of dishes that can be enjoyed in the tastefully redecorated restaurant or phoned in for take out. The owners and staff are friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable.
Caffe delle Stelle is a wonderful restaurant to enjoy a good Italian meal in a charming setting. The food is excellent: Osso bucco and pasta dishes along with their delicious bread are reminiscent of dishes eaten in Italy. The specials are always delicious as are the desserts. This is a popular restaurant for special occasions and without reservations you will probably have to wait for a table during the busy evening hours.

Discounts given to seniors and savings for multiple cuts on family days. Open daily, parking available in front of the shop and on the neighboring streets.
The owners are friendly and attentive. Good alterations especially hemming of pants/slacks: measurements taken at the shop and completed within a few days ... at affordable prices. Dry cleaning is neat and clothes doesn't smell like chemicals. Shop is conveniently located in the El Cerrito Plaza so parking is easily accessible.
Ichi Maki's sashimi and sushi is excellent. The sashimi entree is more expensive than at other places, but enough for two people to share. There is a good children's dinner offering a variety of choices including salmon and gyoza. At lunchtime there is usually a waiting line as this is a popular restaurant and their lunch sets are reasonable. The teriyaki flavoring however tastes more like Korean BBQ than traditional Japanese teriyaki sauce.
