After the Hike: Local Favorites

Tom's Depot First time here. Very modest with large selection of omelets and pancakes served with big portions. I'll be back.
991 Fremont Ave, Los Altos CA — (650) 948-8515
Round Table Pizza 2nd Roundtable Pizzeria ever! Great pizza, great beer, great atmosphere, and padded bench seats at every table!
399 1st St, Los Altos CA — (650) 941-0237
Brian's Restaurant Loco Moco here is awesome!
680 Fremont Ave, Los Altos CA — (650) 941-0680
Cafe Vitale The BLT pizza is amazing! Just the right balance of flavors.
987 Fremont Ave, Los Altos CA — (408) 824-0074
VMware Café 8147 I love the wraps at the Indian station.
Manresa Bread Verve coffee on fleek. Croissants are so soft and fluffy.
Satura Cakes This is my daughter's favorite Red Velvet...everything is delicious here
200 Main St, Los Altos CA — (650) 948-3300
Rick's Cafe Pancakes are huge! And delicious. Also the bacado (bacon and avocado) omelet is fantastic.
205 State St, Los Altos CA — (650) 559-1941
Italian Delicatessen Beware! The Godfather costs $6.95 and their minimum credit card payment is $7 and they WILL make a fuss over this!
139 Main St, Los Altos CA — (650) 948-6745
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.
House of Bagels Been going to this joint since I was in high school! A loooong time. Bagels always baked fresh. Warm atmosphere. Fast, prompt and nice service.
Esther's German Bakery Get a full liter and enjoy a great conversation on the back patio.
Chef Chu's Bonus points if you can score a parking spot closer than a 5 minute walk away...
Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
PASTIS Bistro Français OMG. The chicken liver salad is to die for.
Amigos Grill The margaritas are incredible! If you want it a little less sweet order the skinny margarita.
Konditorei Cafe The best coffee shop in this part of the world. Coffee, pastries, clientele and seating under the sun are great, what can one ask from a honest cup of coffee.
The Counter Mountain View They just started to offer beer flights... 4 for 8 bucks. Get a wheat, ale, IPA and stout... great way to sample amazing beers followed by some kick ass burgers.
The Counter Palo Alto try the sweet potato fries! it's sooo tasty!
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!
