Maison Alyzee’s kouign amann showcases the Mountain View bakery’s traditional French pastry styles.

Two pastry shops newly opened in downtown Mountain View this summer pay tribute to an international style but tailor their wares to the Mountain View market.

Revelation in Fit wins national recognition

Revelation in Fit, the Los Altos lingerie store known for its high-end European designers and a large range of sizes tailored to fit women’s (real) bodies, received national affection at the lingerie industry’s awards show this summer.

The shop, which opened at 386 State St. in early 2017, specializes in one-on-one consultations to help find a piece of lingerie tailor-made to fit the huge range of breast shapes and sizes found in nature – but not usually reflected on store racks.

Co-owner Dianne Edmonds bought the bookstore with Jill Curcio in 2010 from original founders Linda and Dennis Ronberg. The Ronbergs had been looking to retire for nearly a year, but 2009 was a tough year to find a buyer for the business.
