Welcome to Downtown Los Altos

The tree lined streets of Downtown Los Altos, lush with green in summer and verdant colors in fall, evoke the quaint, village atmosphere of small-town America. Nowhere else can you find a hardware store, a gem & mineral shop, and two grocery stores just a short stroll from unique cafes, boutiques and salons.

Within the six-block downtown triangle you will discover more than 150 shops offering just about everything from A to Z. Grab a quick bite or enjoy fine dining, make a deposit, grab a special gift, get your eyes or teeth checked, or have your clothes cleaned and tailored. All this and more with free, convenient parking on street and in the plazas.

Shop. Dine. Explore. Discover. Downtown Los Altos.
