We had reservation for 10 before game Friday. When we arrived the place was closed and there was a health department notice on the door. Fortunately we were able to be seated right away at the Mayfield next door.

Calafia was closed by the health inspectors the first week of November, and had another health inspectors closed sign on it this evening (note, that now the Market is open). They had numerous health inspection issues that will seem unsavory to readers of this site....More

Calafia has an interesting menu with lots of vegetarian options but the food was not very flavorful and just seemed like a bunch of stuff tossed into a bowl. It took forever for the waiter to take our order.

If you are vegan, vegetarian, an omnivore or a carnivore you can find what you want here. We usually sit outside because indoors can be loud, but pick a seat away from the overhead music. Styles of food range from classic American to asian and...More

We had high hopes for this restaurant based on what appeared to be an innovative menu that is half for "meat eaters" and half for "plant eaters". Although I am both, I decided to have a vegetarian meal based on that being so featured in...More

Description
In 2009, Charlie Ayers leased nearly 5,000 square feet of space in the Town & Country Shopping Plaza across from Stanford University, realizing his dream of a owning neighborhood spot serving organic, sustainable, healthy, delicious food. Calafia Cafe & Market A Go-Go was an instant hit, and today still has crowds lining up to get a seat. This casual restaurant has an energetic vibe, and serves food inspired by the incredible bounty that is available in California. Calafia continues to bring the Silicon Valley community and its visitors together around fresh, farm-to-table cuisine in an always festive atmosphere.
