For more than 15 years, Rising Loafer Cafe & Bakery’s kitchen has been churning out fresh breads, sandwiches, and breakfast fare free of preservatives or additives. The bakery wafts aromas of freshly baked garlic-basil and cinnamon-raisin breads as griddles sizzle with french toast, buttermilk pancakes, and belgian waffles. Traditional sandwiches and half-pound burgers perch comfortably atop a variety of breads, each newly emerged from its warm oven and contemplating its existential connection with mayonnaise for the first time. Rising Loafer Cafe & Bakery feeds the stomachs and souls of patrons in the community, giving back by providing food and support to area schools and charity events, such as the Diablo Valley Women's League auction, which raised funds for Helping Children with Cancer.
Tower Grille was created with an atmosphere that invites diners to linger over their burgers, pastas, and salads in open-air patio seating or in front of ample TVs equipped with a variety of sports packages. The comfortable atmosphere and hearty meals earned Danville Weekly's readers' choice award for best burger, take-out, and place for business lunches in 2009. The dishes of comfort food include classic deli fare such as reuben and french-dip sandwiches alongside bistro items such as penne pasta with fresh vegetables and farmers'-market-inspired salads that toss together greens and anything from marcona almonds to gold beets. Diners can also dig into pizzas topped with a choice of 19 toppings along with draft brews and specialty cocktails that chase meals down to the stomach's secure holding cell. Ten HD televisions show sports games, and live entertainment abounds, including regular live-music performances and weekly beer-pong tournaments.

For city quality dining, locals flock to this intimate restaurant where they are assured of impeccable & knowledgeable service.
The dough wizards at Papa John's hand toss circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.
Los Panchos crafts delicious Mexican cuisine from fresh ingredients and traditional recipes, filling its menu with more than 75 south-of-the-border standouts. Rather than calming grumbling tummies by taking a nap in a life raft as it gently sways away from the shore, guests may stuff them with burritos brimming with refried beans, guacamole, and a choice of chicken, beef, or pork ($8.50). Juicy pork carnitas can fill soft tacos ($3.25 each), enchiladas ($3.50 each), or deep-fried chimichangas ($5.75), or erupt from cheesy mountains of nachos ($8.50). Like a traffic light, chili verde’s sauce comes in a choice of green or red ($9.25), letting diners barrel into spiciness or pause to savor a mild chili flavor with each meaty bite.
