Delicious tidbits

Very popular amongst professionals. Tasty Mexican tidbits. Nice microbrews. Plenty of outside seating, with gas warmers. Good wifi.

The beautiful spanish adobe architecture and the artwork make this place one of the coziest cafes I've been too. Coffee is fantastics, the quiche is to die for and the arepas are delicious. Sunday breakfast is great with all the fresh fruit. You order at the counter and they deliver the food. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and a great place... More

Lovely place off University Ave. Good atmosphere and always busy. They opened another room next door which is a bit more spacious.

Really, really good coffee. Probably where hundreds of Bay Area start ups began. We went for years between 2005 and 2009, then returned a few times in 2015. Always great coffee. Food is good too, but they seem to take too long to serve even simple bites like bagels - would be 5 stars if it wasn't for this.

This is a cute but noisy spot just off University Ave. A big problem is that the counter is poorly set up. After you get your coffee you have to squeeze through people to the right to get to the cream (someone had to hand it to me and I had to use another person's table to pour). Then, if... More

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.
