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!!!
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.
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
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.
PASTIS Bistro Français OMG. The chicken liver salad is to die for.
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.
Douce France Wifi password: doucefrance
Palo Alto Creamery Mint chip milkshake made w/ homemade ice cream, egg salad sandwich w/ black olives on sourdough & extra pickles on the side, steak fries, any baked goods like cookies, pies. Oh so good & open late!

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

651 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 353-2208
Reposado Best Margaritas in town, seriously. Great tasty appetizers too.
Coupa Café Listen closely. You may overhear patrons talking about preferred shares, term sheets, or user retention rates at this tech hotspot.
538 Ramona St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 322-6872
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
