Breakfast like no other

This place was my favorite of the entire trip. The bacon alone was to die for. Excellent breakfast. Opens at 8 am. Yum!

Mayfield has the best bread in Palo Alto! . In addition the restaurant is a great place for lunch both in terms of the evolving menu and menu variety.The warm olive appetizer is a personal favorite. Their next door cafe offers excellent espresso based drinks, cakes, breads and small treats.

I went to mayfield bakery the other day with my mom for lunch. The place was packed both inside and outside. Judging by the size of the crowd I thought that the food would be excellent. The ambience of this place is great along with very polite and great staff but the food fell off my expectation level. It was... More

Dinner menu is short but interesting. However both our dishes arrived cold and not very tasty. Mediocre service. Very noisy. Won't return. Good location, easy parking.

Food is so good that we went there twice during our trips near Palo Alto. Everything from corn soup and gnocchi to delicious salmon tostada is perfect. Try their signature strawberry cocktail - will not disappoint especially on a hot day. If you want calmer time during your visit - ask for outside seating. Enjoy!

While we have eaten at Mayfield's plenty of times for dinner, I recently enjoyed a great breakfast there. Eggs poached to perfection and two, thick slices of applewood smoked bacon, fried crispy like they should be. Toast, because of the bakery next door, was fantastic, as was the homemade jam to smear on top. Yummy.

I have been to the Mayfield twice this month, once for lunch and once for breakfast. There is never anything on the menu that looks appetizing. Choice mainly look bizarre. And everything is overpriced. If I want two eggs, potatoes, bacon and toast I am better off at Joanie's. At Mayfield the bacon is impossible to chew, and the potatoes... More

Had a great Saturday lunch here. Many around us were still having brunch after 2pm. We had one of the pizzas and salad. Both were very fresh and delicious. The bread from their bakery was excellent.Everything we saw looked very good!

I will not argue that they use quality local ingredients. However, they are overpriced for what you get. The oatmeal (10) was so soft and tasteless that the great toppings could not save it. The camino special is great but so tiny for the money. You have to ask for everything, butter, jelly, ketchup etc. Be prepared to not be... More
