After the Hike: Local Favorites

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.
Alice's Restaurant For those times you want to feel transported to an alternate reality where everyone drives motorcycles and lives in the middle of an old growth forest.
Amigos Grill The margaritas are incredible! If you want it a little less sweet order the skinny margarita.
Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
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.
Buck's of Woodside Where all the Venture Capitalists hang out
3062 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA — (650) 851-8010
The Little Store We eat here all the time! Great Napa Cabbage Salad with Chicken and Spatten Beer on tap. Oh hell yeah!
3340 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA — (650) 851-8110
Country Corner Best hot pastrami on light rye, toasted. I keep coming back just for that.
Dutch Goose Get the Deviled Eggs
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
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
Brian's Restaurant Loco Moco here is awesome!
680 Fremont Ave, Los Altos CA — (650) 941-0680
Prima Deli Skip major meal times as there were some large orders going on making a longer wait inevitable.
Oh Baby Sushi A seriously good sushi restaurant with great service. Don't tell the hipsters or else I'll never get a table at this little jewel box!
Thai Cafe best food on campus. delicious and affordable. make sure to try the curry or noodle salads!!
Galeotti's Pizza Mixed bag - We love the pizza... when they don't burn it (about half the time).
