I have had brunch at La Foret twice. Both times it has been very good. I am planning on having dinner there one of these days too. The best thing about La Foret is the view and atmosphere. It is just beautiful there. The food was good both times, but not really my type of cuisine. A bit too fancy for me.
PROS: Beautiful scenery
CONS: expensive and on the fancy side
I have always loved going to this store. Between school, Indian princess, cabana club, etc. I go there a lot! I can always find good deals on craft supplies, fabric and home decor. There is always a sale, and it's fun to look at the craft stuff.
I have been going to Lovely Nails since it's been there. My daughters and I get pedicures and manicures. They seem very clean, but I do get nervous about catching something. So far, so good. My son has even had a couple of pedicures. They are always ready for us when we drop in and are very nice.
This is a very convenient place to get gas. I don't think that their prices are the best, but I like going to this gas station because it is close to Togos, Burger King and Safeway.
PROS: Convenient for Almaden Neighbors
CONS: Not the cheapest gas
I have had Birthday Parties for my kids there for many years. I have two girls and one boy, and they were always very happy to have parties at Almaden Valley Gymnastics. My kids are older now, but they will always remember the fun times there. Dawn is great with the kids. She always has games. One of my daughters has taken classes there as well and really enjoyed them.
Doctor Contini is a great pediatrician! I have three kids who have gone there since he started several years ago. He has a great personality, and is very thorough when treating my children. He has a way of getting them to calm down when they have an injury. They leave smiling! My daughters like to see a female doctor, and there is one available. I'm sorry I don't remember her name, but she is very good too.
I like to see Dr. Leslyn Watson (actually a Nurse Practitioner) when I go to Almaden Family Physicians. She is very knowledgeable and listens carefully. Some of the other Doctors there has been rude and argued with me. We always ask for her. I brought my daughter in one time with a cut on her face and the receptionist said that they didn't have anyone there to help us. We went to Dr. Contini and she got fixed up right away.
PROS: Leslyn Watson is great!
CONS: Some of the older Doctors need to retire.
The Olive Garden has a delicious steak called the "Tuscan T-Bone". If you are a steak lover like I am, you will love this tender steak with rosemary sauce. It comes with country style potatoes and vegetables. I also get the "Zupa Toscana" soup. Yum!
PROS: Great food
CONS: Long wait
My family has gone to Dr. Egelston and is very happy and satisfied with his work. He is also very nice. His prices are reasonable and he has a convenient location next to the post office.
PROS: Nice, good work, resonable
CONS: none that I can think of
I have been to this business 3 times. Sheila Dear is the person who does permanent make up. She is fantastic! They do waxing, facials, massage and other services. They have a very private environment with soft music and lighting. They are right by Michaels at the Princeton Plaza. I highly recommend them.
PROS: Sheila is a great artist who does the permanent make-up
CONS: Some may not want to spend money on this type of thing
