YUM!

A highlight of a visit to Menlo Park. Taste delights to please any all palettes. Although always busy the service is fairly rapid and the food is worth waiting for.

Borrone is the quintessential valley experince. Large area outside with tons of tables with umbrellas for shade. Nice tables inside as well. Often jazz quartet playing outside too. Everyone outside eating, mingling in the sunshine, under the blue sky, with Kepler book store right next store, another institution. A real old fashion and yet updated bookstore Keplers to me is...

Although things at this cafe can be a bit pricy, they are definitely worth it. The half order of French toast was huge and AMAZING. The cakes and other desserts in the glass case also looked really good. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone near Menlo park. The only drawback might me the crowd because this place is so...

Borrone is a wonderful community cafe. Though it can get crowded, the substantial outdoor seating makes it an easy place to meet just one friend or a group. Love the spinach salad for lunch/dinner and the scramble eggs or pan de mie with berries are both great breakfast dishes. They also have a wonderful berry muffin.

Family run business that delivers consistently delicious, fresh food. Nice outdoor patio to soak up the sun and really friendly service staff. Not a place for a diet as they don't skimp on butter with their exquisite baked goods nor do they attempt to do anything that isn't full flavor even if it's clearly also full fat. That said plenty...

I go back at least once a year for a delicious veggie melt and a vanilla latte. I pretty much grew up at this cafe, going with friends, sitting outside with a good book, or meeting old friends from high school for lunch. Great ambiance and wonderful, helpful staff.

I first went to Cafe Borrone back in the mid-1990s. That's how long ago it's been since I've been going. I love their Mexican Mocha, so yummy. I always order their minestrone with garlic bread as well... so delicious. I've had a few other things and I've not had a bad experience with food. Very delicious! I can't say it's... More
