I live in Alamo and when I come to Danville I come to eat mostly. My wife and I love to go to the Basil Leaf Cafe and the Rising Loafer, those are our favorites. We also like to go to Trader Joe's and Lunardi's out here because we don't have them in Alamo and Danville's right next door.

My son and I usually go to the Farmers Market on Saturdays. My son loves to walk around and eat fruit. It's a good way to spend time together after working all week.
What is your favorite thing to do downtown?
Besides giving massages at the Body Adventure, I love to go for walks with my 2- and 4-year-old granddaughters with my dog. We take the Iron Horse Trail from Danville to Alamo where it's nice and shady. I love to take my dog down to Hap Magee Park as well. I live in Oakland and it's the best dog park around, he has a lot of fun there. The third thing I love to do downtown is go and get my hair done at Salon 5 by Heather; she does such a good job.
My favorite things to do are to go to Sideboard to eat and hang out because the food is great and I love the music. I love to go to Peet's Coffee and Tea, too, because I know all the people that work there and it has good coffee and a fun environment.
I enjoy walking around on a nice day because you always run into people you know. There are a lot of nice, quaint places to eat but, all in all, Danville's pretty boring.
