    It's really hard to find a better cafe for breads & pastries, fresh food and great coffee all under the same roof & shady oak. One of my favourites on the Peninsula

    Great food, location and service! Best place in Palo Alto and close to Stanford University - don't miss it!

    Tummy boner: crispy rabbit rillette in rabbit jus, bavette steak in bonito bagna cauda, drunken bourbon bread pudding.1 of the best meals I've had in a while. Warm, inviting, and great service 2 boot.

    I want to ask them what brand of panini maker they use because even a simple ham and cheese panini was cooked to perfection. Crispy, good ridge width, warmth, yum!

    $12 mimosa? Absurdly overpriced. $12 pulled chicken sandwich with brie and smoked bacon? Much better and amazingly delicious. Loved the tasty pickles that came with it too. Staff very courteous!

    The local purveyors who supplied the ingredients for each item are listed directly on the menu: some well-known sources include Mariquita Farm, Cowgirl Creamery, Niman Ranch and Fulton Valley Farms.

    The Rotisserie chicken is so tender in the salad, it's delicious. If you are very hungry, this is a small portion.

    Best restaurant I've been too in awhile. EVERYTHING we ordered was amazing and perfectly cooked/baked. I would be more specific but I get the feeling everything on the menu is just as great.

    If you tell your waiter you want to split the appetizer they'll actually bring it out on two plates and you actually get more than if you split it yourself!

    Go for the faro as a change of pace to pasta. You won't be disappointed.

    The high noise level is perfect when you have small children. Enjoyed a lovely french toast and basic breakfast despite a cold noisette.

    Sit at the counter. The servers are the best and its the best way to have a couples meal unless you want to be alone.

    The Camino breakfast has a bit of everything, including the cottage potatoes. The hot chocolate comes with a giant marshmallow!

    One of the few places around with mini baguettes, perfect for those times when you can't finish a whole one before it turns into a rock.

    Hot cocoa is delish! Rich cocoa flavor...between a milk and dark chocolate. Very creamy, een with nonfat milk-topped off with a homemade marshmallow. A tad bit on the sweet side...

    Ask for baguette vs their regular bread. So much better. In fact, if something isn't right, just ask and they will make it so...love this place.

    It pays to have dinner here close to closing ... Free bread! They have us three French rolls and three baguettes to take home.

    Great hot chocolate, especially with a marshmallow. The cookies are amazing; ask them to warm them up for you.

    Ok breakfast... just not particularly worth the $77 for 2 adults & 1 child. Next time we get pastries & coffee and save the omelette for the nest trip to IHOP.

    Long line at 8:30. A nice break since I missed Caltrain. Definitely get a chocolate croissant.

    Pricey (~$20 per person for brunch), but all of the items they serve are local and the quality is second to none.

    The coffee is made by the cup and to die for. The ham and cheese paninis are the best lunch deal.

    The farroto with vegetables is a creative vegetarian option. Give it a whirl!

    The space is very appealing, but the service and food are more often a "miss" than a "hit". I keep trying, and keep being disappointed.

    Small peanut butter bar is my regular. French rolls for $.45 is nice. Walnut leavain is my favorite bread. I should try other breads too.

    The Turtle Tart is just amazing. The problem is that Mayfield Cafe does NOT serve that dessert. You need to get it from the Mayfield Bakery next door.

    Dinner is great, albeit a little pricey. When the bakery closes, they put out left over bread to take home in the cafe.

    Tasty beef hash that doesn't feel heavy. Very loud and hard to hear people across from you.

    The Charles Harris Baker, a thing of beauty, a drink of refinement.
