Eat & Shop in Mill Valley

Homegrown. When it comes to restaurants, clothing boutiques and other destination shops, that word gets thrown around often. But in Mill Valley, “homegrown” is representative of the community itself.

Why? The vast majority of businesses in Mill Valley are mom-and-pop shops.

That means that the people who own your favorite restaurant or boutique are likely your kid’s baseball or soccer coach, the dad who donates burritos for the end of season party or the mom who organizes the car pool to school.

These are folks who are not only deeply invested in their business, but they’re also dedicated to the larger success of Mill Valley’s five commercial districts – downtown, Alto Plaza, Miller Ave., Tam Junction and Strawberry Village – each with its own unique flair.


Mill Valley boasts the best selection of restaurants, cafes, and markets per square mile in Marin County. Whether your taste in food is local and organic or traditional Italian; whether you want to enjoy an evening with friends in a lively bar or a night out on the town with someone special; whether you are seeking a quick bite to eat with your family or just a great cup of coffee, we think you’ll find exactly what you are looking for in Mill Valley.

In recent years, Mill Valley has increasingly become a place to gather over a cup of coffee, a delicious meal spanning a wide range of cuisines or a cocktail.
