This place has organic, healthy, quality ingredients and meals. I really love coming here for special occasions because it really is a treat. (You do have to pay for the extra quality though - which is definitely worth it on occasion)

Don't be fooled by appearances. It may look like a place you'd take your maiden aunt for tea, but it's really got an excellent kitchen! It it only weren't so expensive, it would be perfect as our local cafe.

Organic-food icon Jesse Ziff Cool keeps her Menlo Park HQ truckin' with a menu based on fresh local produce. The restaurant looks like a place you'd take your maiden aunt, with flowered wallpaper and mismatched chairs in several small rooms. The dishes are always fresh and delicious; the sesame seed biscuits are addictive. Flea Street would be a favorite neighborhood hangout if the prices were more affordable.

This was our first visit to the Flea Street Cafe. We had business on the S.F. Peninsula and we had wanted to try this establishment for quite some time. We arrived 15 minutes early and we were willing to wait at the bar for our table but a table was waiting for us immediately. The service was excellent - prompt, efficient and friendly. The decor is simple and the restaurant is divided in three areas that gives the atmosphere from one's table a more intimate feel. Although some might find the menu a bit limited the product that comes out of the kitchen is simply great. My wife and I shared an appetizer, soup and salad and we each portioned parts of our entrees for each other. The mushroom soup was the best I have ever tasted and the sauteed black cod and the roasted lamb were prepared to perfection. We split a mango tart for desert to cap off our meal and the final pastry didn't disappoint. We were scraping up every last morsel of crumbs and filling that we could get off of the plate. The wines seem to be very fairly priced and there are an ample amount of wines sold by the glass.
We don't travel to Menlo Park too often but knowing that the Flea Street Cafe is there might be enough to entice us to make a special trip just to have another chance to savor the cuisine. It is that good.
