The place is super crowded and it seems at all times. The waiters are too busy and often forget to clean the tables or Take a way the dishes. Food is decently priced and good. The dip sauces are great as well as their cakes. Huge variety. Best of all is their mocca coffee though.

This is PA, this is Stanford, Central casting. REALLY good stuff. No service, but you don't care. Get there early and, oh yeah, get a raspberry croissant. Yes, you could, at this point, just die happy and fulfilled.

Crepes are well made and compliments the coffee well. If you are feeling adventurous try the chili spiked coffee. The savory crepes also are good but a small for a full meal.

I frequently this cafe many times, in its first few years. A good combination of coffee shop, wine bar, pastries and other foods. But as more and more people apparently use it as their office, it has become impossible to find a place to sit down! So I've stopped even trying to go. (In fairness: if the weather's not bad,...

There is no better place in town to grab a stellar cup of tea or coffee, a fabulous and tasty breakfast (or lunch or dinner), and enjoy the intellectual buzz of a college town cafe. The staff is wonderful, the decor is inviting, the food is amazing, and you won't lack for interesting conversations around you. Coupa is my favorite... More

Yeah...you have to take a break here. Delicious chocolates, great coffee drinks. Loved the atmosphere. I had a chicken wraps with figs and cranberry. My husband loved the grilled cheese with tomato. It was all good. Go!

They made error on not one but both of our orders. Staff was indifferent when it was pointed out. May have been language barrier, not sure. Won't go back.

Went here for a casual breakfast on a weekday morning in Palo Alto. Decent place--order at the counter. Lots of good looking pastries in the case and a menu with crepes and some other breakfast items. Service at the counter was polite and speedy; food was brought to the table in a reasonable amount of time. A chocolate chip scone... More

Starbucks has the rep but Coupa has the goods. Been going there for several summers at the Stanford campus and it is my first choice for a quick coffee. They serve twice as many people in half the time with quality individualized coffee without the pretense. BTW: less expensive but no less quality. Try it when at Stanford U.
