Its me Shadow-getting ready to come down to the "Big City" again so I have a question. But first, I did post some information on the California Board about a great little French restaurant on Hwy. 395 in Independence called The Still Life Cafe (previously of Olancha). So, if you're headed up this way check it out!
Ok, I'll be in Torrance later this week to play some Paddle Tennis and will have some time to kill before hand-I might need a bakery or coffee place where I can just relax with a cup of coffee (and maybe a dessert?) in Torrance. And, is there a shopping area with Barnes and Noble etc. around there?
