There are dozens of great things to choose from. All well put together and difficult to only chose one thing. Well-balanced choices for meat eaters and vegans alike. I was surprised by how low the tab was at the end.

The menu contains a diverse selection of vegetarian and meat dishes of Californian cuisine. The ingredients seem to be fresh and the dishes are well composed. The waiters are extremely friendly and attentive. Try one of the smoothies!

A separate menu für plant eaters - that's an excellent idea! All dishes are perfectly labeled. The salads are creative, delicious, and they have substance, for instance, enriched with quinoa, avocado or roasted nuts - important for vegans. Then, burgers, pasta, pizza and a few...More

Great night out and the food was excellent. Service was a tad odd. Super slow with drinks such that our food arrived before our drinks. Prices were reasonable.

The place looks so chic, the menu sounds interesting, the prices are high. It should be good...but my Napa Duck salad was really disappointing. Bland dressing and "where's the duck?" Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing. The noise level is to high for relaxed...More

The food here is excellent, the beer selection is stellar, service is amazing, and the menu offerings are diverse. Calafia is a great restaurant for a dinner meet up, dinner date, brunch, or a shot and a beer at the bar watching a game.

Went here for Mothers Day brunch so maybe it's not typical of the atmosphere and service. I had the Blue Max with coffee; my husband and son had the classic eggs and bacon. We waited for menus, for coffee and food and had to track...More

In 2009, Charlie Ayers leased nearly 5,000 square feet of space in the Town & Country Shopping Plaza across from Stanford University, realizing his dream of a owning neighborhood spot serving organic, sustainable, healthy, delicious food. Calafia Cafe & Market A Go-Go was an instant hit, and today still has crowds lining up to get a seat. This casual restaurant has an energetic vibe, and serves food inspired by the incredible bounty that is available in California. Calafia continues to bring the Silicon Valley community and its visitors together around fresh, farm-to-table cuisine in an always festive atmosphere.
