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.
Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
Buck's of Woodside Where all the Venture Capitalists hang out

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
