This branch of a franchise restaurant is a true asset in downtown Menlo Park. The service is more than expected—you order and they bring it to you, the atmosphere is clean, neat, and unhurried. They have added recently to their soup repertoire. I have tried...More

This place is good if you want just a coffee and a light pastry but I would not recommend the food here; the food is not that great.

The baked goods here are really good. But the one person behind the counter, taking orders and also making coffee drinks, is not exactly a champion of efficiency. Not a good choice for a quick lunch.

Le Boulanger in Menlo Park is a good, steady place to go for lunch soups and sandwiches. Decor is similar to the Le Boulanger in Los Altos and also in San Mateo. They also have salads and good breads and pastries. I like the 9-grain...More

I could call this our second office. It has fantastic booths and comfortable seating for breakfast/coffee meetings. The food is fine - nice pastries, salads and fantastic sandwiches. We go for the space. You can have a great conversation without blasting music (like Starbucks).

Popular for a lunch sandwiches but nothing else to recommend it. Staff are often disinterested, tables dirty. Needs a facelift and new ownership

I did not actually eat here. I just had a Chai Tea Latte which was fair. The restaurant was busy with lots of people, so it seems to be popular.

The food here is good. It is a bit pricey but it is a classic bakery that is similar to chains of the same kind. Soups, sandwiches, salads, breads, pastries, coffees. There is no real standout. Just good solid food. The chips are an amazing...More
