If you want atmosphere, this shopping mall has it in spades. Antique automobile museum, upscale market (Draegers), fine clothing shops, movie and restaurants, etc. Centerpiece is the falls, fountains, ponds with ducks, sculptures, and marble structures. Fun just to hang out at and window shop. Fun place to take the young ones.

Just like the last time we visited Blackhawk Plaza, we came primarily to do lunch and visit the museum. Nevertheless, we would have enjoyed our stroll around this remarkable shopping/dining/entertainment mecca even if we never set foot in one of the buildings. The architecture is eye pleasing and the landscaping is drop-dead gorgeous. I particularly like the water features and... More

My husband and I love the cream cheese frosted chocolate fudge cake. We used to get it at the San Mateo location. I got one for my husband as a treat for his birthday. He liked it, but in comparing it to the Whole Foods black and white cake in Napa, it's not as good. Still very good and bakery... More

We (a couple) visited Blackhawk Plaza one day in November and were impressed by its atmosphere. The whole place was drowning in nature because of many plants and flowers around. There was a huge lake full of birds like ducks and swans. Besides real animals, there were also statues of them. On the other hand, the shopping area of the... More

Stores are constantly changing. Poor selection. Will return only for movie theater. Too uppity even for Danville.

We stopped at Blackhawk Plaza expecting an upscale shopping experience but found empty storefronts and going-out-of-business sales. Difficult to navigate with a stroller. Also lacks sufficient restrooms. Very disappointed.

Blackhawk Plaza continually goes through various transformations. I think the percentage of stores and restaurants going in and out of business is higher then the norm for a center. Restaurant, grocery, stores are mainly on the higher side and quality average but not exceptional. The Car Museum is outstanding and the fountains are beautiful and relaxing.

Admittedly we visited over Christmas and the lights may not always be there but it looked magical as the daylight dimmed. We had gone to visit The Blackhawk Automotive Museum and were very pleasantly surprised by what we found. Unfortunately, not all of the shops were open after we had visited the Museum but we had a meander through the... More

This shopping center has some good stores like Draeger's Grocery store - a higher end grocery store with lots of good food and kitchen wear. There are restaurants and cafes for both patio and inside dining. There is the Superlative Blackhawk Automobile Museum. There is a good men's clothing store Patrick James and Anthropologie for women. The shopping center is... More
