Nothing against Starbucks, but you know... when in Rome...
Visiting a good friend in Palo Alto, her aunt and I went out for a coffee and decided to bypass the Starbucks in favor of trying the Palo Alto Coffee House. Glad we did.
The coffee options were just as good, the decor was more unique and the cafe more spacious. The dark wood interior with the abundance of windows and the outdoor seating allowed for a calm atmosphere without being dark.
The coffee was good, the mugs were real and the tea was twice the size of the equivalent at Starbucks.
The fellow behind the counter was a little more rough on manners, but the clientele looks to be mostly male and they may not notice.
Try it instead of the Starbucks if you are in the neighborhood.
