Tucked away in the wooded hills and winding streets above Oakland, Montclair is a small community with an appealing central shopping district. Sizable custom homes, along with a mix of Mediterranean, Craftsman, and contemporary-style homes are situated on forested lots, offering an elegant retreat from the city.
The Montclair Business District is a throwback to a simpler time before strip malls, megamalls, and big-box stores. Residents can find everything they need, from dry cleaning and groceries to restaurants. Local restaurant favorites include the Montclair Egg Shop, Daughter Thai Restaurant, and Crogan’s Bar & Grill.
Gourmet specialty items are available at Le Bonbon, The Fifth Quarter Charcuterie, and Farmstead Wine and Cheese. A farmers market on Sundays provides fresh local produce and baked goods.
Montclair is home to fine-arts festivals throughout the year and a jazz festival in the late summer that enlivens the street scene.
