Of the places open for breakfast/brunch in the University Avenue area, this is one of the best.
The menu changes seasonally and every weekend has a different special.
The St. Mike's omelet is great, the benedicts are terrific, and how can you pass up Blue Monkey pancakes (blueberry & banana). They also have soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches on the brunch menu. The food is reliably good.
The staff is pleasant and prompt.
The restaurant is a bit small, so there can be a wait on the weekend. There are 4 tables on the narrow sidewalk in front of the restaurant that are great on a nice day, but people waiting tend to crowd you a bit out there.
Oddly, though I've lived in Palo Alto for many years, I've never eaten dinner here. It's my favorite brunch place, though.
