After the Ride: Local Favorites

Konditorei Cafe The best coffee shop in this part of the world. Coffee, pastries, clientele and seating under the sun are great, what can one ask from a honest cup of coffee.
Amigos Grill The margaritas are incredible! If you want it a little less sweet order the skinny margarita.
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 Before he was brought on as CEO of YouTube, Salar Kamangar met cofounder Chat Hurley for burgers at this pub, which was located near both of their homes.
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.
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
The Little Store We eat here all the time! Great Napa Cabbage Salad with Chicken and Spatten Beer on tap. Oh hell yeah!
3340 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA — (650) 851-8110
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
Vina Enoteca Nice outdoor patio. Food really good. Not over done in sauce or oil. Nice romantic low key place.
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.
VMware Café 8147 I love the wraps at the Indian station.
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.
Driftwood Deli & Market Kevin's. that's all you need to know.
The Counter Palo Alto try the sweet potato fries! it's sooo tasty!
Zareen's If you want a table for lunch, come early (like 11:40) as they fill up quickly. Also check in with the helpful guy bussing tables, he will hook you up when a party leaves!
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.
