After the Hike: Local Favorites

Buck's of Woodside Where all the Venture Capitalists hang out
3062 Woodside Rd, Woodside CA — (650) 851-8010
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.
Country Corner Best hot pastrami on light rye, toasted. I keep coming back just for that.
Avanti Pizza Pizza by the slice!
Dutch Goose Before he was brought on as CEO of YouTube, Salar Kamangar met cofounder Chat Hurley for burgers at this pub, which was located near both of their homes.
Portola Valley Lobster Shack Now serving Chimay Red on tap. Trappist Monks FTW!!!
Tootsies Don't forget about saturday brunch here. Excellent coffee and pastries. Small selection of entrees but they're all good.
700 Welch Rd, Palo Alto CA — (650) 566-8445
Vina Enoteca Fantastic place! Had a chance to try many dishes. The pork loin and lamb were excellent! So was the soup and salads. Desserts were really good too. Best penna cotta i ever had! 2 thumbs way up!!!
Mademoiselle Colette The chocolate cake, croissants, savory pastry, cappuccino
The Refuge Good food at steep price, their signature Reuben is, while delicious, $17 for a sandwich and DOES NOT come with fries! An atrocity..
1143 Crane St, Menlo Park CA — (650) 319-8197
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.
Applewood Pizza You can't tell by the look of the place, but they serve a pretty decent pizza! I recommend the Budapest.
Fambrini's Terrace Cafe Be careful when paying cash - I have them a $20 but got change for a $10
PASTIS Bistro Français OMG. The chicken liver salad is to die for.
Zareen's The naan was amazing
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
Patxi's Pizza Leftover crust? Ask for some honey! All Patxi's locations have honey-bears to transform your crust into a totally yummy treat!
441 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 473-9999
Pizzeria Delfina Excellent pizza, their Salsiccia is outstanding. Add Fra'Mani Salame Piccante for extra kick. Don't miss the Prosciutto Pie, perfect arugula and prosciutto combo.
651 Emerson St, Palo Alto CA — (650) 353-2208
Oren's Hummus Shop best hummus I've ever had outside of Israel. the meat hummus and mushroom hummus are ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY AMAZING!
