We walked over to the Village from our hotel and discovered the Mayfield bakery for breakfast. The quality of the food was great, nice sized servings and the staff attentive. It also has a true bakery on site for breads rolls & etc... If you are planning to eat at the restaurant as we did, make reservations - its is... More

Came here for breakfast after a hike at the near by standford dish trail. Great place! The pastries are great and the hot chocolate was fantastic.

I have dined here before and Loved it, which is why we chose to dine here on Mother's Day. We shared a burrata fava bean with toast appetizer. It was fifteen dollars and had one small piece of toast for the plate. hmmmm? I don't mine paying the 15 dollars, but I think another piece of toast would round it... More

Mayfield is nicely decorated and had a good fresh menu for breakfast. Location is good and there is plenty of parking in the strip mall. Service is very friendly and the space allows for quiet conversations, at least early in the morning. I had an omelette which was quite good and well seasoned. Would definitely schedule a meeting here again.

The bakery for quick breakfast is excellent, the breads / backed good the finest in the peninsula. The staff are harried, but good, the choice of bread is just right. If i want the fresh best of bread, this is the place i been going and will go again.

Easy going, clean and friendly cafe in Town and Country Square. Fresh strawberry lemonade is just one of the refreshing beverages! Service was terrific and atmosphere alive and hopping!

Lunched here last week, seated outdoors in glorious weather. Food was outstanding, seriously fresh and prepared perfectly. Table service was also very, very good. Surprising for the "outdoor" part of a restaurant. Only negative was the reception/hostess. OMG, you would have thought we were crashing some swanky Beverly Hills eatery. 11:15 a.m. no reservation, and there was a line of... More

A friend recommended we have lunch at Mayfields in the Town and country strip mall and I wasn't sure what to expect. This is not your ordinary strip mall- it's Palo Alto/Stanford after all. Nice lunch menu ( I had the Kale salad and added chicken), full bar, comprehensive wine selection. Service was prompt and friendly.

I come to Palo Alto for work almost weekly. And I have lackluster food reviews to date. I was recommended to another restaurant in this complex and it was closed for a private event. So I went to Yelp and found this place. I am surprisingly happy I did so. I ordered the gnocchi with brussels sprouts and it is... More
