Find Gluten-Free and Vegan Fare at Yalla Mediterranean Restaurant in Walnut Creek
Sustainability has become an important part of the dining experience for many CA residents. They want to know their food has been locally sourced, their eating utensils won’t be tossed into a landfill when they dispose of them, and the farmers who supply a restaurant’s food support free-range and non-GMO methods.
When you eat a meal at Yalla Mediterranean, one of the best restaurants in Walnut Creek, you can be sure you’ll get all that and more. We built our chain on the very concept of sustainability. Our foods come from nearby farms and we compost our waste to ensure it gets reused responsibly. We proudly support farms that treat their livestock and their crops well. We only partner with those who share this same belief in environmentally-sound practices.
Our meals reflect that dedication to high quality. The wide variety of salads, wraps and platters, all with a Mediterranean flair, are prepared quickly and without the heavy ingredients that weigh down most takeout food. Our healthy cuisine will leave you feeling light and refreshed, rather than tired and heavy, ready to tackle the rest of your day or night.
We cater to those with special diets, such as people who require gluten-free or vegan meals. We understand the dangers of cross-contamination and serve up meals prepared with your particular needs in mind. Our delicious food has been made fresh for you, and that makes it better than any other takeout you can find in northern California.
How Yalla Mediterranean Became One of the Best Places to Eat in Walnut Creek, CA
Our Walnut Creek location was the second of our Daphne’s restaurants to convert to a Yalla Mediterranean, following the place in Pleasant Hill. The transition occurred in early 2015, with a remodel of the old restaurant introducing an open-flame rotisserie grill and a décor featuring reclaimed wood panels, further reflecting our commitment to sustainability. Our outdoor patio, with heat lamps for the colder months, immediately became a hit with Walnut Creek residents looking for restaurants with healthy, fast and casual fare.
This location features an impressive array of local wines as well as seasonal lemonades, crafted by the house to reflect what’s ripe and ready from our local farms. The menu also changes according to what ingredients we’ve received from our farmers. Beets, for instance, stay popular all year long, but we may use them with pears in the fall and with root veggies in the winter.

Visiting Walnut Creek? Here’s What You Need to Know
Many locals have made Yalla Mediterranean a part of their daily routine, but we also welcome out-of-town visitors interested in getting to know the city. Located east of Oakland in Contra Costa County, the city houses two large healthcare companies — John Muir Health and Kaiser Permanente — the biggest employers in the area.
Walnut Creek is best known for:
- Serving as home base for the California Symphony.
- Being the birthplace of former MLB pitcher Randy Johnson.
- Low levels of precipitation, which falls to almost zero in the summertime when temperatures may rise to the triple-figures.
The active arts community in Walnut Creek has loads of opportunities for visitors. The Bedford Gallery hosts exhibitions by contemporary artists, while the Center Repertory Company puts on a half-dozen plays each year, including an annual production of “A Christmas Carol.” The Festival Opera house and Company C Contemporary Ballet company round out the town’s many arts offerings.
Why Farm-to-Table Restaurants Thrive in Walnut Creek
Farm-to-table restaurants include those where food comes from local farms and is served to diners right away. There’s no middle man, such as a market. This ensures the produce and meat are as fresh as possible, giving diners the best tastes.
Local farms that supply our foods include those in nearby towns that have been with Yalla Mediterranean since we started. We rotate our roster of farm partners to get the freshest ingredients.
At Yalla Mediterranean, we offer food for every sort of diet. If you need a vegetarian restaurant or one that can accommodate special dietary needs, you can find what you need at our Walnut Creek location. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
