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.
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
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
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!
Galeotti's Pizza Mixed bag - We love the pizza... when they don't burn it (about half the time).
Cafe Vitale The BLT pizza is amazing! Just the right balance of flavors.
987 Fremont Ave, Los Altos CA — (408) 824-0074
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
PASTIS Bistro Français OMG. The chicken liver salad is to die for.
Sancho's Taqueria When ordering the fish tacos, make sure to order the fish grilled, otherwise comes fried. Grilled is so tasty, and healthier too.
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!
Calafia Café & Market A-Go-Go Holy shi* if you can order the salmon burger , do it immediately. I got it as a special but you might be able to swing it.
Douce France Wifi password: doucefrance
Palo Alto Creamery Mint chip milkshake made w/ homemade ice cream, egg salad sandwich w/ black olives on sourdough & extra pickles on the side, steak fries, any baked goods like cookies, pies. Oh so good & open late!
566 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 323-3131
