ShopStyle asked me to share a few of my favorite “best kept secret” spots around my Bay Area hometown, and I can’t wait to share my top 3 with you over the next few weeks!

The first on my list is Cafe Baklava, my favorite restaurant on Castro St. in downtown Mountain View.  The strip boasts some of the best eats in the North Bay from all over the globe, along with several boutiques, unique furniture spots, book stores and food markets.

I’ve spent many date nights and weekends in this downtown area, and casual with an aspect of dressy is always the way to go when strolling the strip.
