Three New Neighbors Move Into Hilldale Shopping Center

This summer you can expect warm strolls outdoors with a Blue Bottle New Orleans Iced Coffee or Philz’s Iced Mint Mojito in hand, plus added dining options and some more ways to experience family adventures in the neighborhood.  Hillsdale Shopping Center has announced three new leases signed in recent weeks, bringing new offerings to its outdoor North Block Plaza this summer.

Philz Up San Mateo! In addition to Blue Bottle at Town Square, there’s more ways to enjoy your favorite roast. Philz Coffee is moving adjacent to Bay Meadows at Hillsdale Shopping Center. We’re partial to the iconic Mint Mojito so we’re feeling pretty jazzed to enjoy it, closer to home.  Ask for it the House Way and view more menu items here. San Francisco-based craft drip company Philz Coffee is known for its sustainably sourced custom blends and ground-to-order, slow pour coffees as well as handmade toasts and bowls, hot breakfasts and baked goods.

If you have East Coast cravings and a West Coast state of mind, you’ll be thrilled to welcome The Refuge within walking distance from our neighborhood. The Bay Area’s third Peninsula location of The Refuge just next door will offer its popular, generously portioned ‘East Coast street food’ — signature thick-cut pastrami sandwiches, burgers and Belgian beers in a gastropub setting.
