    Great food, location and service! Best place in Palo Alto and close to Stanford University - don't miss it!

    A beautifully presented bakery & cafe. Enjoyed the Omelette Ranchero, but was disappointed with my bowl sized latte. Good coffee in the US is few and far between.

    It's really hard to find a better cafe for breads & pastries, fresh food and great coffee all under the same roof & shady oak. One of my favourites on the Peninsula

    Really nice carrot soup. The greyhound’s tooth cocktail was nice as well! A bit pricey but really friendly servers

    One of the few places around with mini baguettes, perfect for those times when you can't finish a whole one before it turns into a rock.

    Tummy boner: crispy rabbit rillette in rabbit jus, bavette steak in bonito bagna cauda, drunken bourbon bread pudding.1 of the best meals I've had in a while. Warm, inviting, and great service 2 boot.

    The Rotisserie chicken is so tender in the salad, it's delicious. If you are very hungry, this is a small portion.

    Best restaurant I've been too in awhile. EVERYTHING we ordered was amazing and perfectly cooked/baked. I would be more specific but I get the feeling everything on the menu is just as great.

    I want to ask them what brand of panini maker they use because even a simple ham and cheese panini was cooked to perfection. Crispy, good ridge width, warmth, yum!

    They do everything so well here. You can't go wrong! And the people are great! Sit outside or at the bar in the morning...

    Go for the faro as a change of pace to pasta. You won't be disappointed.

    The local purveyors who supplied the ingredients for each item are listed directly on the menu: some well-known sources include Mariquita Farm, Cowgirl Creamery, Niman Ranch and Fulton Valley Farms.

    $12 mimosa? Absurdly overpriced. $12 pulled chicken sandwich with brie and smoked bacon? Much better and amazingly delicious. Loved the tasty pickles that came with it too. Staff very courteous!

    The high noise level is perfect when you have small children. Enjoyed a lovely french toast and basic breakfast despite a cold noisette.

    Ok breakfast... just not particularly worth the $77 for 2 adults & 1 child. Next time we get pastries & coffee and save the omelette for the nest trip to IHOP.

    The weekend brunch is spectacular! The menu rotates, but they have these apple fritters always that are to die for.

    If you tell your waiter you want to split the appetizer they'll actually bring it out on two plates and you actually get more than if you split it yourself!

    Strozzapreti. Rarely seen in a menu and totally worth a try.

    Sit at the counter. The servers are the best and its the best way to have a couples meal unless you want to be alone.

    Pricey (~$20 per person for brunch), but all of the items they serve are local and the quality is second to none.

    Great hot chocolate, especially with a marshmallow. The cookies are amazing; ask them to warm them up for you.

    The veggie quiche at the bakery is always a hit with our 2 year old. It's heavenly.

    Hot cocoa is delish! Rich cocoa flavor...between a milk and dark chocolate. Very creamy, een with nonfat milk-topped off with a homemade marshmallow. A tad bit on the sweet side...

    The space is very appealing, but the service and food are more often a "miss" than a "hit". I keep trying, and keep being disappointed.

    It pays to have dinner here close to closing ... Free bread! They have us three French rolls and three baguettes to take home.

    The farroto with vegetables is a creative vegetarian option. Give it a whirl!

    Ask for baguette vs their regular bread. So much better. In fact, if something isn't right, just ask and they will make it this place.

    The coffee is made by the cup and to die for. The ham and cheese paninis are the best lunch deal.

    Coffee was meh. The fried chicken sandwich was meh. Worst croissant. I’ve had in years. Given the price, would have expected to be a lot better than mediocre.
