Los Gatos Coffee and Chocolate Walk:
Self guided walk starts on Saturday October 10th. I will be at the Town Plaza Park in the heart of downtown Los Gatos from 9:00 am - 10:00 am to greet you in person before you start your walk. Also check out the Los Gatos Farmers Market at the park on Sunday from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. You can choose any day you take your self guided walk until October 25th.

You will receive a 1/4 pound bag of coffee beans in your walk box along with a token for a 12 oz. cup of their award winning coffee. You can walk into the cafe and pick up your coffee or something to eat and enjoy it outside.
Stop #2. Icing On The Cake @icingonthecakebakerylg (10:00 am - 4:00 pm closed on Sunday and Monday): You will receive a gift certificate for $5 in your walk box. Savor their made-from-scratch-daily treats when visiting this fun and colorful bakery with your gift certificate. I recommend their "Crumble Bee" short bread cookie or their famous "Swirly" cupcake. They are my favorites! I also love their housewares, party, and stationery items. The bakery is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Enamel “Swirly Cake” pins and “Solstice” coffee cups by Danica Studios will be sold separately as souvenirs. Supplies will be limited on these items.
Stop # 3. Fleur de Cocoa @fleur.de.cocoa (8:00 am - 4:00 pm): Step into this French Pastisserie with amazing pastries, mousse cakes, artisan chocolates, and gourmet coffee. Using French recipes and techniques, Fleur de Cocoa offers a variety of traditional French mousse cakes, tarts and pastries, as well as fine teas and espresso drinks. Their light lunch menu includes uniquely French sandwiches, quiches and salads, which you can enjoy outside on their patio. Enjoy a complimentary Fleur de Cocoa truffle, which will be included in your Walk Box.
Stop # 4. She She Shoes @shesheshoes (10:00 am - 6:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm): Take a break from drinking coffee and eating chocolate and have fun shopping at this part glam, part contemporary, and part edgy boutique filled with stylish shoes, clothing, accessories, and gift items. She She Boutique is a fashion oasis in the heart of downtown Los Gatos offering a warm, inviting, flirty and fun atmosphere. The wide range of inventory and beautiful setting makes for an indulgent and memorable shopping experience. Enjoy shopping with your $10 gift card from She She Shoes in store or online. Their coffee cups are super fun!

Receive a complimentary Unette size gelato of your choice (please present your gelato card from your Walk Box). Sit down, relax and enjoy your gelato outside on their cute and shaded back patio. I recommend the Cappuccino Chip, it's my favorite!
Stop # 6. Rootstock Wine Bar @rootstockwinebar (Saturday 12:00 pm - 10:00 pm and Sunday 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm): This wine Bar celebrates the wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Santa Clara County while offering local organic cuisine in the form of enjoyable, delectable small plates and antipasti. Sit outside and reflect on your day (limit party of 6 or less per table). I recommend the Burrata Salad. It is amazing with a combination of pears, strawberries, spiced nuts, and Burrata cheese and pairs well with a Sauvignon Blanc.
Stop # 7. Loma Brewing Company @lomabrew (12:00 pm - 9:00 pm and Sunday 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm): Enjoy their award winning beer, locally sourced menu, and artisan coffee to go from the Loma Coffee Bar in their new outdoor space on Grays Lane.
