Welcome to Downtown Los Altos

The tree lined streets of Downtown Los Altos, lush with green in summer and vibrantly colorful 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 special gift, make a deposit, have your clothes cleaned and tailored, and then grab food to go from the area’s most unique array of restaurants. Convenient FREE parking on the street and in the plazas.

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