“Excellent Cafe - Don't forget to get your coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great little Palo Alto staple cafe. Amidst the glow of MacBooks you'll find excellent conversation and great food. Don't forget to pick up your coffee unless you want to hear your name yelled a few times, and definitely sit at the 'sharing table'

“Great lattes and egg dishes, cute back room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

They have the best lattes here, really good coffee, and love the omelettes with fruit side dish and baguettes. The back room is a really cozy place to sit.

“great cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I like this place, it's the ideal cafe' for getting dinner when a restaurant feels too much. Salads are fantastic, and sandwiches too, and it feels like a good place to get a coffee and work or read. The price is a bit high, but still less than a mediocre restaurant.

The lattes at this place are fantastic, as well as the hot chocolates with various spices. The baked goods are fine. The breakfasts acceptable!

“Awesome - startup hangout, argentinian specialties”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Coupa is "that cafe everyone in PA knows". If you're meeting someone from stanford, you can just say "meet at coupa" and they'll find it. The coffee is good if you get it in the french-press, hand ground, or if you get the Mayan Hot Chocolate, which they import and grind themselves. Arepas and Catchapas are hard to find in the area, and the fries are always good. The place is kind of small and gets a little loud, so consider sitting out on the sidewalk. One of the cultural centers of Palo Alto.
