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.
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
Mademoiselle Colette The chocolate cake, croissants, savory pastry, cappuccino
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.
Applewood Pizza You can't tell by the look of the place, but they serve a pretty decent pizza! I recommend the Budapest.
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.
Zareen's Everything is super-delicious!
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.
