The falafel is fantastic! Then the flaky filo dough'd baklava, walnut and pistachio. And if you lean toward more tahini than lemon in your hummus like myself, you'll like the hummus and babaganoush here. The owner is a friendly local of many years who really treats you like you're in...more
Always a good place for an American breakfast without being too greasy of a spoon. The service is formidable. I first ate here 14 years ago when I lived in the area.

My favorite coffee in the sea of gourmet 1-off drip coffee wars. Originally from San Francisco, I'm happy to find Philz franchised its way into Palo Alto on a Monday morning. It isn't a polished looking cafe. There's a lot of outdoor seating; tables and chairs of...more
