"A smaller alternative to Topanga Canyon shopping"
Fallbrook in West Hills is mostly known for Fallbrook Centre, a nice grouping of shops and restaurants that stretches from Fallbrook to Royer, Victory Blvd to Van Owen. There are some good sit down places- though mostly of the chain variety (think IHOP, Red Lobster) as well as a Subway, various coffee eateries and the like. Trader Joe's makes an appearance, a gem in the otherwise overpriced Woodland Hills/West Hills market. Perhaps the most unique draw is one of the few independent movie theaters in the area- a Laemelle owned cinema that shows movies you won't find down the street at the AMC.
