Eat Local In Willow Glen
Ask any Willow Glen resident what they love about living in this tree-lined enclave in San Jose and they will cite the true neighborhood feel and Lincoln Avenue. “The Avenue” is the heart of the community and a place where I first let my kids go off by themselves. It’s also a place where people walk from their homes for good food. They line up for house-made ravioli from Bertucelli’s La Villa, hearty breakfasts at Bill’s Café and John’s, colorful Tex-Mex at Aqui and upscale dining at Siena Bistro and Vin Santo.
Fresh, seasonal and handcrafted fare is appreciated in Willow Glen, and here are a few of our favorites.
Local Scoop: Kids can learn to cook at Cucina Bambini, a handson culinary school for kids ages 3 and up. Older kids can even learn to roll sushi and make chicken tikka masala.
