I really like supporting local farmers and don't mind paying a premium for quality produce from local organic farmers. I was intrigued by the beet salad on the menu, and thought that the $13 price at lunch would provide an entree-sized salad -- especially since Mayfield's offered a 3-course farmers' lunch for $18. My $13 salad was smaller than all appetizer or side salads I enjoyed in the Bay Area, with about 6 pieces of greens and 2 or 3 beets that were about the size of small grapes! There were a few other scant ingredients. I was surprised at the meager size of this salad, and I don't understand why the waiter didn't find a way to politely mention that this salad alone would be an exceedingly light lunch! My husband had a nice sandwich at a less inflated price, but we've enjoyed other locally sourced meals in and around Palo Alto for much better value. The cafe is extremely noisy, and the tables along the long interior bench are exceedingly close. When my husband was chewing his sandwich and our conversation was interrupted, I could hear every word of the conversations from the 2 neighboring tables!
