I love this place. Its a bit on the pricy side, but I love the Salmon Carpaccio with a glass of white wine enough to pay it. And being right next to Keplers makes it even more appealing.

Cafe Borrone is a Menlo Park institution next to Kepler's Books (another Menlo Park institution.) You can't go wrong here; great chicken salad and chicken salad sandi. Excellent coffee drinks. So you have to wait in line, pay, and the wait staff will deliver to your table but if you want to order something else they will take your order table-side. Great people watching, good to visit with your pooch, and consistantly good.

I love this place! It is great for all meals and all of the food is great. The staff are attentive and wonderful. The waits are usually short. There are usually open tables for 3-4 people in this nice outside patio. Smaller tables are inside but it is up to you where to sit. As I said before you should choose what you think is good and I wouldn't see it disappointing. The food is a little expensive but definitely worth it. However, you should get dessert whenever you want and I recommend the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream.

We just moved into the area and are so happy we stumbled upon this obviously well-loved establishment, evidenced by the long line (that moves rapidly!) on Sunday morning. Drink your dark roast coffee from a brightly colored mug and enjoy the attentive staff and wide array of tasty pastries (blueberry muffins are a must!) and savory breakfast options!
