    Try the Fish Sandwich - Yummy crispy cod and sauce has great flavor. Veggies fresh and crunchy and tasty. This was a daily so might not be available when you visit. (via @Foodspotting)

    Menlo Park's great café that's perfect for every occasion and THE place to dine al fresco. Above all else, get a sandwich on the homemade focaccia and a coffee drink with the mythical whipped cream.
