Good Food/Prices a Bit HIGH

Been eating at Barrone's Cafe since it opened in the late 70's so have seen lots of changes. First of all the move from Redwood City to Menlo Park. Have been a 'regular' at the cafe in the past eating there almost every day for lunch. I do not frequent Borrone's as much these days because prices... read more

Not a cozy environment so not my preferred setting. Reasonable service and large selection of cheesecakes. Fun place to be in a group

Great spot for coffee in the sun. The front faces the street and the sun streams in most of the morning. A nice spot for families, friends and dates. Don't forget to stop and grab a new book at Kepler's to enjoy with your espresso in the sun.

We love this place: Our favorite choice for a casual evening out, or weekend brunch. On some Fridays, they have live jazz music which is super fun. The rest of the time, it just has the right "humming" of people around. Fine wine by the glass and a beautiful cheese plate. What else could you ask for? (The food is... More

food is very good and healthy. When it is a nice day you can sit outside. It can be crowded and noisy when the weather is not good and there is no outside seating.

Cafe Borrone never disappoints, it's an easy going atmosphere with great coffees and breakfast (never been for lunch).

On a recent visit to Menlo Park, we needed to stop somewhere to eat a quick breakfast. Nothing extensive--nothing extravagant. After seeing that Café Borrone was less than a mile from the hotel and was rated well on TripAdvisor, we gave it a go. Good choice. Good service, good food. Shared an omelet and was just the right size for... More

While they have a very good system, you still have to be patient to wait in line and get your selections. Popular morning and lunch times find the Cafe very crowded and it's often hard to find a table. However, the coffees and food are great.

Excellent spot to enjoy coffee and breakfast, if you like, over relaxed conversation on huge outdoor patio. Don't let the long line to order scare you away--it moves very quickly and once you place your order, it's quickly brought to your table, as well.
