    A great spot to grab some brunch and coffee. It was so packed during brunch time that it nearly took us half an hour to find an open seating. This place is first come first serve type of deal.

    We ordered:

    - waffles with fresh strawberry and banana = waffle taste light and the fruit was fresh.

    - Mediterranean panini = moist chicken breast with delicious sun dried tomato and mozzarella.

    Overall, I love this place. Too bad the seating was so cramped. Next time I come here, I will call in advance for reservation.

    They have amazing coffee and panini's. The front room can get a little loud, but the back is a lot more quiet and they have couches and pillows. I love spending an afternoon sipping gourmet coffee and reading a good book on one of their couches.

    This is a cafe conducive to productivity. If you've got some laptop-ing to do, you aren't alone here. The free wifi doesn't chug, the soy milk hot chocolate is scrumdilious, and there lots of seating, inside and out.

    I went there a while ago and it was very nice. We just had takeout from there, and it was not more than ok. The caprese salad I took was nice but the eggplant are not cooked enough and no salt at all, very small for the price they are charging (9.5$). The atmosphere in the place is great so I recommend staying because it's not the best takeout place around...

    Multiple locations on the Stanford campus. This one in the Y2E2 building is a good place to stop for coffee. The iced mocha has little bits of chocolate in it.

    The ambiance is warm, inviting, and comfortable. The walls in the back room by the fireplace are painted lipstick red. On any given night, the place is lively and filled with conversations. The spicy hot chocolate not only warms the bones when the weather is chilly but serves to warm up small talk, too.

    Good atmosphere, great hot chocolate, but on the pricey side (even for Palo Alto), and it tends to be very busy. They may turn off the wifi on weekends, would double check if looking to get work done.

    Addicted to the marron which is a triple shot of Venezuelan espresso beans. Love that the baristas write names and make designs on the froth - it's super cute!

    Coupa is a good place to grab a coffee, have a bite to eat, or do some work. I've had meetings and interviews here. There's tables inside and outside, although the place is often packed, and I've had to switch to different spots for lunch. The spiced mocha and hot chocoalte are excellent, as are their crepes.

    Awesome crepes! In high school a lot of my friends would study here and have some of their delicious food as well.

    "Fell in love today. With a waffle from Coupa Cafe. That's all I have to say. Eh, eh." Yep, that was my tweet after I had left this awesome place. A friend had posted a pic of their beaut called PJ's waffle, topped with strawberries, bananas and Nutella. I headed over while I still had my mind on vacation mode (I just returned from SD the day before). The waffle along with an iced latte was just what I needed. It was a late breakfast for me, so best believe I plowed through it. I was even tempted to lick the plate afterward. Of course I didn't. Very legit waffle, that was. Already made plans for another round with it, and hopefully I can bring their mango mousse home with me. Ugh, mouth watering. I'm gonna need a tissue...

    My favorite brunch place on the peninsula. Can be tricky to get a table and they don't take reservations, but the food is worth the wait. Great coffee too.
