I've been going here for nearly twenty years. I love the coffee, the food, and the variety of places to sit (indoors or outdoors). The pastries are particularly good. It's also a wonderful place to enjoy the book you just purchased next door at Kepler's.

I love the patio and the food quality. It is reasonably priced and provides a wide range of options. They service beer and wine and it makes a great place to enjoy a relaxing summer evening. The only downside is the train noise!

They use fresh thick whipped cream on their hot chocolate. Menu is reasonable. Good to just come by for just coffee also especially if sunny and you can sit outside. Sometimes a bit noisy inside.

Go here for lunch every now and then. Good sandwiches and salads. Ingredients are fresh. Prices are high though, even for Menlo Park.
