Food & Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

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.
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.
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!
iTalico New Italian joint on Cal Ave. Pasta seemed fresh and flavorful. Owner came by to personally thank and welcome us. We'll be going back.
Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
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.
Thai Cafe best food on campus. delicious and affordable. make sure to try the curry or noodle salads!!
Douce France Wifi password: doucefrance
Pizzeria Delfina Excellent pizza, their Salsiccia is outstanding. Add Fra'Mani Salame Piccante for extra kick. Don't miss the Prosciutto Pie, perfect arugula and prosciutto combo.
651 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 353-2208
Oren's Hummus Shop best hummus I've ever had outside of Israel. the meat hummus and mushroom hummus are ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY AMAZING!
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
Vina Enoteca Nice outdoor patio. Food really good. Not over done in sauce or oil. Nice romantic low key place.
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
Dutch Goose Before he was brought on as CEO of YouTube, Salar Kamangar met cofounder Chat Hurley for burgers at this pub, which was located near both of their homes.
Avanti Pizza Pizza by the slice!
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.
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
Country Corner Best hot pastrami on light rye, toasted. I keep coming back just for that.
