Basil Leaf Cafe, 4040 East Avenue, Livermore
East Avenue runs from the southeast part of downtown
due east past the eastern limit of Livermore. For those of you not familiar with the
strange intersections in downtown Livermore, the longer but more straightforward route to
the restaurant is to go east on Interstate 580 and take the Vasco Road exit south. (If you
go north on Vasco Road you'll end up in Brentwood after 30 minutes.)
The restaurant is on your right on the north side of the street hidden in a neighborhood shopping center. You will pass a gas station at the corner of Hayes. You can turn right, go up a half block and turn left into the shopping center.
If you don't turn on Hayes, don't panic, just continue on East Avenue one more block to Hillcrest which is the west boundary of the shopping center. There's a stoplight at Hillcrest. Turn right, go up a half block, and turn right into the west side of the parking lot.
The Basil Leaf is next door to another restaurant, so
look carefully and go into the right restaurant. The rear dining room is separated from
the main dining room by windows, so keep right, head through the main dining room, and
