Montecito Florist is located in a huge shopping center with plenty of parking spaces available. Its not a huge florist but which one is? They offer a variety of fresh grown flowers and the great service can assist you with picking out some for that special occasion. Its not too far from the freeway so thats a plus for location too. I have met the owner and shes a real down to earth woman.
The Bread Basket Bakery is a well established Filipino bakery located on Mission St. They have a good location and is very easy to find except parking can be a pain. The service is good and the goods are fresh and sometimes right out of the oven if your lucky.
At D Vallerio Family Bakery, they offer you a variety of specialty breads and sweets from the Filipino cook book. Everything is baked in the back and not shipped to them so all you eat are fresh goodies. The service is good and friendly. Parking is easy to find in the huge lot and its located next to a huge market.
Sunflower Bakery provides the community with baked goodies that reminds some of us and introduces the delicious tastes of the Philippine breads. They have good service and provide more than just bakery needs. They also have party trays available and Lechon (roasted pig) upon request. Good location and parking is always available.
Valley Produce Market is a great produce store for the locals convenience. I live not too far from the market and they have more than enough fruits and vegetables at your finger tips with great prices. The service there is great and very friendly. They also have their own parking lot so you dont have to worry about finding parking spaces.
Located on Pinole Valley Rd right across from the Pinole Valley High School. So it does get a little busy and not as quiet as you think it would be in a library. Other than that the staff is great and will help you find what your looking for. They have a bus stop right in front so if your not driving its very convenient.
Benicia Bait & Tackle is located in the small city of Benicia. It may be a small bait shop but they sure have the bait you need when you need it. They also have all the tackle you will need. Dont forget to ask them for the hot spots around the area which is just a few blocks away from the shop.
Amf Pinole Valley Lanes has grown into a really good hang out spot for the young and adults on the weekends. They turn the lights out in the lanes and have black lights with neon balls and pins. They also have a few pool tables and video games for other forms of entertainment. Good place to take your kids if you have teenagers.
The only place you can go to if you don't really like big crowds and hard to find parking places. San Pable Billiards is not the place to take a date to have a good game of pool. The location is not in a very good area and is in one of the busiest strreets of San Pablo. Good place if your a shooter and want to hit some balls.
Classic Billiards sits on the corner of one of the busiest streets in San Rafael. The first level has a big screen T.V. and video games if you lost a game and waiting for your next turn. Service is good and they have waitresses in the evenings. Good place to hang out and shoot some balls.
