This store is very clean and has a great atmosphere. You'll feel like you stepped into a spa boutique. They staff is very friendly too. They gave me free samples last time (after asking) and I didn't even buy anything!
This has got to be one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants I've had in a while! I didn't know that Oakland had this great secret, but it's been around for many years and is family owned! The building itself is very cute and colorful, can't miss it. The parking lot is kind of difficult to find a spot at, but there's plenty of street parking (metered). The portions are generous and the chips and salsa are absolutely delicious (as is everything else). It can get busy, so keep that in mind, but the service is good overall.
This place is very nice, a great place to by that special gift for a birthday or wedding. The items are very classy, although a bit on the expensive side. Also, they have a great return policy, even if you lost the receipt they'll give you credit to buy a future item with hardly any questions asked. It's too bad that they don't have more stores in other areas.
They have the best nuts-absolutely delicious. For the holiday season they let you put them in a cute holiday container of your choice. It's too bad the hours aren't a little longer but the prices are great and they have a great variety of nuts with great flavor. They make a great gift or you can buy a bag for yourself to snack on!
This store has the best chocolate covered apples that you will ever have! All their other chocolate is the best as well. I gave a bag of chocolate to a coworker and she still raves about it. They've been on the Today Show, I think, and Oprah is also a fan, and I found out why when I visited the store. The chocolates (especially the huge chocolate apple) make great, unique gifts, and best of all, the store is very generous with samples-almost each type of chocolate has a sample. Don't miss this!
They have pretty much everything, though like alot of 'natural' grocery stores they are a bit on the more expensive side. Their bakery section has the best walnut bread I've had. I tried the juice section but they weren't very attentive so I left.
This place is very nice, including the decor. The portions aren't huge, but just enough, unlike similar restaurants. The service may be a slow but overall are friendly. Try the Spring rolls-they are yummy! The Thai Ice Tea is also served with ice in a tall glass and is also very good and refreshing.The best thing is, some of their spicy dishes you can specify how hot you want it-and they stay true to your request (mild is really mild, not sizzling as in some restaurants)
I have not had my nails done here but people I know rave about it. They have great specials from what I've heard and occasional parties where they sell items, like discounted shoes. I got a pair of Nine West boots for only $25 and they gave me discounts for future visits. Nice clean salon, too.
This place has not only bbq, but so much more! It's great if you have a very large group (baby shower? graduation?) because they lead you to a special room at the back with a door that makes you feel like a VIP, so you're only with your party. The food is great and generous portions
The food here is great! The service is great! And best of all, the desserts are great! Really nothing bad to say about this place. Plus it's conveniently close to Kaiser hospital, so whether you're visiting or a patient no need to buy hospital food there when you have this nearby.
