"A place to satiate any craving"

4th Avenue is THE place to be in San Mateo in terms of shopping and dining. From El Camino to the 101 Freeway you'll find something to tickle your fancy. There are a ton of great restaurants from sushi to sandwiches and Italian to fine dining. You will not be disappointed. I also love the fact that you can go workout at Equinox Gym or 24 Hour Fitness right up the street. There's a great little park near by (Central Park on 5th) to sit and have lunch or go for a stroll.

Also, 4th Avenue is super convenient to the CalTrain which drops you off at 2nd Avenue right downtown.
  • Great shopping
  • Close to CalTrain
  • Good deats

"A place to get away and relax"

There are a lot of stores for shopping and Central Park Bistro is right there by them. It has great food and the bread is good the parking is fine. They have great sea food and mashed potatoes. They even have great deserts like the chocolate fondue.

There is also a nice spa, face and body studio. They give massage and make overs. You can get waxed and eyebrows done. The decor is well done but not over done. It’s tasteful and relaxing. A great way to distress after a long day. She is also great with clearing up skin health issues.
