After the Ride: Local Favorites

Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
Country Corner Best hot pastrami on light rye, toasted. I keep coming back just for that.
Dutch Goose Get the Deviled Eggs
Alpine Inn Not into the fancy Palo Alto scene? Head up alpine to the Alpine Inn. Not so great food, a huge back yard, patio, and lots of cyclists. OH. AND A TRON MACHINE.
CoHo A coffee house and more. Enjoy the cozy mismatched sofas and caricatures of Stanford-affiliated people on the walls. Features live entertainment many evenings.
459 Lagunita Dr, Stanford CA — (650) 721-1234
Thai Cafe best food on campus. delicious and affordable. make sure to try the curry or noodle salads!!
Buck's of Woodside Where all the Venture Capitalists hang out
3062 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA — (650) 851-8010
Tootsies Don't forget about saturday brunch here. Excellent coffee and pastries. Small selection of entrees but they're all good.
700 Welch Rd, Palo Alto CA — (650) 566-8445
The Refuge Good food at steep price, their signature Reuben is, while delicious, $17 for a sandwich and DOES NOT come with fries! An atrocity..
1143 Crane St, Menlo Park CA — (650) 319-8197
Alice's Restaurant For those times you want to feel transported to an alternate reality where everyone drives motorcycles and lives in the middle of an old growth forest.
Cafe Borrone get the Frosted Mocha. it'll keep you coming back for more.
Fambrini's Terrace Cafe Be careful when paying cash - I have them a $20 but got change for a $10
PASTIS Bistro Français OMG. The chicken liver salad is to die for.
Mayfield Bakery & Cafe Sit at the counter. The servers are the best and its the best way to have a couples meal unless you want to be alone.
Calafia Café & Market A-Go-Go Holy shi* if you can order the salmon burger , do it immediately. I got it as a special but you might be able to swing it.
Douce France Wifi password: doucefrance
Patxi's Pizza Leftover crust? Ask for some honey! All Patxi's locations have honey-bears to transform your crust into a totally yummy treat!
441 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 473-9999
Pizzeria Delfina Excellent pizza, their Salsiccia is outstanding. Add Fra'Mani Salame Piccante for extra kick. Don't miss the Prosciutto Pie, perfect arugula and prosciutto combo.
651 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 353-2208
Reposado Best Margaritas in town, seriously. Great tasty appetizers too.
Nola Ladies - try the "Cock & Balls" for dessert. It's actually not on the menu, you have to make a special request for it. It's a brownie & banana split shaped like... uhh... you know.. ;)
535 Ramona St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 328-2722
