Was passing through to San Francisco and stopped to have dinner with an old friend. This was a great place to have dinner, catch up and just relax.

Comfort food with local, seasonal, farm ingredients. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, 7-days, with a brunch on Sat. and Sun. Casual atmosphere and lots of outside seating if desired. There is a special each day of the week; Sunday is Chicken Pot Pie and it is enough for two meals. The bakery is outstanding: bread I could eat all day; sumptuous... More

We drive 30 minutes for a special meal. Everything has been wonderful, if there is anything left on a place it comes home. The sun never sets on leftovers.

Maybe the best spinach croissant I have ever had. Crowded. Lots of easy parking. Would highly recommend

Every had that once in a lifetime BLT sandwich? Well this is your chance to try one! Bread to die for, bacon probably just off the slab, with fresh lettuce and tomato. You have to eat one to realize what you have been missing!! End it all with a hot chocolate chip cookie and your day is complete

Went to this restaurant with some colleagues for lunch. Loved the light that streamed across the restaurant and the bistro feel. The restaurant had a lovely menu and wine list. I had a fabulous pasta with sweet peas; they were excellent sweet peas. That said, my colleague has some dietary allergies, not preferences -- and the chef decided he didn't... More

Can't figure out what all of the fuss is about regarding the Mayfield Bakery. It seems to be one of these places in Palo Alto where people go to to be seen rather than to have an enjoyable meal. The food is very average and very expensive. $20 for a pizza consisting of bread and a small salad on top... More

My daughter and I had a tour of Stanford planned for the morning. We arrived early so we could get some breakfast prior to the tour. Our route to campus took us past Town & Country Shopping center. The area looked inviting so we stopped toes what our options were. Once we saw the "Bakery" sign, we were hooked. We... More

We went there in the afternoon for coffee and some sweets. The whole place is just lovely and well managed. The food is very well prepared and mostly offering organic ingredients. You need to book on weekends as it is very budy

Very popular spot, judging by the huge lines at brunch on Sunday. We passed on brunch, but I got a muffin to go on Monday morning. The mixed berry muffin had a total of three berries in it. To be fair, they were mixed - each of the three berries was a different type of berry. ymmv
