    Cherubini's Coffee House brings back that 1930s feel when Alamo was just a small town.  Cherubini's is tucked into the back of Alamo Square. Cherubini is a charming cafe and antique furniture shop, decorated in the style of a 19th century apothecary.  Cherubini's is a morning gathering spot for regulars to relax with a latte, read the paper and meet with friends.  Cherubini's has free wireless internet access for those who need to be "connected". The simple menu covers specialty coffees, breakfast rolls and pastries, sandwiches, soups and salads for lunch.  Cherubini's is open for breakfast daily, and lunch Monday thru Saturday. My wife and I often eat lunch at Cherubini's.  Today, I had a bowl of delicious home made beef chili with a BLT.  I almost went back for a 2nd bowl of chili...

Forli Ristorante & Bar3160 Danville BlvdAlamo, CA 94507(925) 820-1711Owners: Gabriele Davanzante and Russ BelleciForli is a great Italian restaurant in Alamo.  With Forli, you really do not have to go to Itality to have great Italian cusine.  Forli is what I always think of when I picture an Italian restaurant in my mind:  intimate without being pretentious, where the waiters are constantly running all over the place (great service), and the smells from the kitchen are mouth watering all by themselves.  Then, almost every night there is Gabriele Davanzante who always seems to make you feel like you are a special guess.Forli's serves really good central Italian style food. They have really good Osso Bucco and Lamb Shank (the best I have ever had). I can guarantee you will enjoy it.  And,...

Today I spent some time looking at home listings in Alamo, CA. There are many properties of all types for sale from town-homes, single family homes and vacant lots. If you've been searching for an affordable home in Alamo in the past, perform an Alamo home search today. You'll find a town-home under $600,000, and single family homes starting at $669,000, on .94 acres! In addition, there is a .94 acre lot with an asking price of $649,000. If you've kept track of Alamo home values in the past you know the times they are a changing. But will Alamo home prices be this affordable in the future? Once the market starts moving again these great deals will disappear, and so will the selection. Start your Alamo home search now so you'll be ready to make the move when your next home comes on the m...

I took a half day off this last weekend to ride my motorcycle one last time before the rainy season arrives. As I usually work most days I thought I could perform an Alamo home search for a client while enjoying my ride. Boy was it hard to stop and view those open Alamo homes! The weather was just perfect, the leaves had turned to their fall colors, green grass sprouting in the orchards, the world was a beautiful place. Everyone was enjoying the last days of fall.Seeing all those open home signs gave me a feeling of sorrow for those real estate agents working their Alamo open homes. The market has been a little slow here so most would be happy to have any prospective buyer show up, even nosy neighbors. Then I got to thinking, do the sellers know how hard their agents are working for the...

Alamo Incorporated? A group of residents in Alamo dissatisfied with the county have formed a group to expore incorporating Alamo.  The committee will host a public meeting May 30 to unveil their proposal and ask Alamo residents for their input.  The meeting will be at Creekside Community Church, 1350 Danville Blvd., Alamo, 7:00 pm on May 30th.There should be some interesting debates within the community in the upcoming months.  Can Alamo (the citizens of Alamo) pay for all the services they will need?  Alamo does have high property values and a high sales tax base (from downtown based businesses to home based businesses) but will this be enough to support the infrastructure?  I don't know.  I look foreward to hearing what this committee has to say.

Alamo is an unincorporated city in the San Ramon Valley area.  Up to date statistics on alamo are difficult to get due to it's unincorporated status.  Alamo is considered one of the "Prestigious communities" located at the foot of Mt.
