Today I want to explore a cute town that I don't go often - Walnut Creek. It has such an adorable downtown shopping area with all kinds of shops and dining. I can literally spend all day there and not be done yet! To my delight, I discovered some REALLY GOOD XLB (Xiaolongbao) and Dumplings here. There are also enough coffee shops to fuel me for the rest of the afternoon. #bayareafood #sanfranciscobayarea #bayareafoodie #xlb #dumplings #hiddengems #captionedvideo #nespresso #cocola #walnutcreek #bayareaeats Nespresso Boutique 1228 Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek, CA Anthroplogie 1149 S Main Street, Walnut Creek, CA Dumpling Hour 1389 N Main Street, Walnut Creek, CA Cocola Cafe 126 Broadway Ln, Walnut Creek, CA Luxllenium is a lifestyle blog + shop, celebrating the beauty and joy of everyday life.

When I first moved to the Bay Area in 2013, the far East Bay was considered a sleepier, less-trendy place than Berkeley and Oakland, and certainly less than downtown San Francisco. Over the last near-decade, though, that has changed dramatically.
