The tree lined streets of downtown Willow Glen offer a small-town feel nestled in the city of San Jose, the 10th largest city in the nation. Stroll downtown Willow Glen and find sidewalk cafes, coffee shops, boutiques, vintage shops, unique kid stores, and doggie water bowls everywhere. Once an incorporated city in its own right, Willow Glen is today a uniquely charming neighborhood of San Jose.
The Lincoln Avenue downtown business district, located between Coe and Minnesota, is lined with sidewalk cafes, Italian delis, home design stores and clothing boutiques. Although Starbucks, Peets, Noah’s Bagels and others have established outposts to mine Willow Glen’s lucrative demographics, most Lincoln Avenue stores continue to be locally owned and operated retail businesses.
