Same for me. I followed Julie here too. She's the best! And yeah, no pretentious hipster vibe, but often some cool art.
I love this place! Parking is easy, the salon is quiet and relaxing, I followed my hair stylist Julie here (who is now the owner) and I like so much better! I have recommended it to friends/co-workers who also love it. No pretentious hipster vibe here
Really great store...loads of selection! Sizes start at a 10 and go to a 24.
I love Diana Gordon at Keter! She gives the best haricuts and her color is spot on! I have been coming here for more than 10 years and I feel happy and plesed every time I leave with a great cut, style and color! THe vibe is creative and the outcomes are excellent!

We investigated nine facilities within 10 min. of our home in the Laurel. All had to be full service facilities with Memory Care unit. We chose Mercy for my 85-yr old MIL. She had the typical reluctance to go to "an old folks' home" but it has worked out beautifully. Within a month she was telling everyone how happy she was to be at Mercy.
The units all have views (either Bay or Hills), the food is good (3 meals daily), the 7-acre campus is safe and well-landscaped, good activities, and best of all, Mercy rates VERY HIGH in state rankings for low turnover, high staff morale, and resident satisfaction. Note that they are associated with the Alma Via homes in Northern CA; Salem Lutheran/Oakland is being sold to provide Mercy with funds for an expansion of facilities.
Altho Mercy has many Catholic residents (Mass is said every day) they do not "push" religion on anyone; we'd consider it non-denominational. There is a private senior center space on-site where classes, concerts, and meetings are held for staff and residents.
Great all around place. Quality food, drinks, music, everything.
Let's see...what restaurant have my family and I been to more times than any other?? Easy - Lin Jia. It never gets old.
The best breakfast in the Grand Lake...dog friendly...great coffee, and home cooking to, well, write home about.
I loved my slice of pizza from the Doughjo. The dough was perfectly crispy on their thin crust and I've even had their mega thick slice- which caused a pizza paradigm shift. I crave it now. No other pizza will do anymore. And it is totally worth the drive to the Laurel.
A hidden gem. Such a great collection of designs. I would recommend highly. Don't forget the jewelry and handbags. All products are such high quality.
really good place to test the Chinese food
Excellent service, with a quirky vibe. The owner is a genuine entrepreneur who loves both people and music. The guitar section is by far my favorite selection in the shop. Stop by for a good convo and good music. I strongly recommend it.
What a great neighborhood restaurant for dinner. I brought a group of friends on a Thursday, first off there is ample parking, service was great and there is ample choices on the menu. After eating and drinking and we played Giant Jenga in the back room.
Highly recommend this place for large parties.
Luke is right again
Very elegant sophisticated place with stylish presentation of awesome fresh cebiches
For anyone who enjoys automotive history, or the art of design and beauty, Bkackhawk will not disappoint. Showing some of the most breathtaking examples of pre-war elegance, technological advancements, and legendary racing, this museum has taken the exhibition of automobiles to another level. Each car stand on it's own against an empty black background, and expertly lit to accentuate it's unique shape and design. This Museum truly blurs the line between engineering design, and fine art. This is a must see for any, but for some, it will really be a life changing event.
Spacious historic space, perfect for art fairs and similar events.
