Top Notch Food and Service

Had lunch here while visiting my daughter who is working at the Stanford University Medical Center. As far as the food and service goes you will be hard pressed to find better. Be prepared to pay for it though. Three adults and one 9 year old girl: we had two BLTs ( one On sourdough and one on... read more

Ok. I don't live in Palo Alto so perhaps I'm not used to their prices but I live in L.A. so I thought it would be similar. That said, everything was delicious and the service was good. My friend and I both had the frittata ($12 I think) which was unusual in that it had a variety of herbs--basil, dill,... More

Not sure how anyone with a hearing deficit could Function here. Weekend crowds are a joke. Service is very friendly and helpful, although slow to a fault. Food generally good, by can leave you hungry. Bread is beyond delicious.

Not what you would expect from a local bakery. Unique pairings of fresh vegetables and wonderful bakery items to create mouth watering choices. Never had such a wonderful pairing with kale and beets in a salad. Warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert were just the perfect topping.

Dropped in here for breakfast with my wife on the way to a doctor's appointment (Asthma not gastroenterology!). The food was awful. The coffee was awful and cold. Nobody cared. Why don't they close the place down they would be doing themselves and everybody else a favor! The bacon was tasteless and underdone. We had to send it back for... More

We had a large table for lunch with reservations. We were seated immediately. The table was a large booth with chairs, very nice. Our server was prompt and professional. Our drink order taken right away, on to the food. We had burgers, chicken salad, salmon. All food was delish and plenty of it. There is a bakery next door if... More

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
