In the grand traditions of the relaxed outdoor Italian piazza and the art inspired Parisian coffee house, family owned and operated Cafe Borrone serves up superb coffee, delectable food, and an unbeatable atmosphere. Located between San Jose and San Francisco, less than a mile from Stanford University and smack in the heart of Silicon Valley, Cafe Borrone is the place to meet and be if you are in or near Menlo Park. Cafe Borrone has been in operation, first in Redwood City, and now in Menlo Park, since 1971. The Cafe has become the gem of Menlo Park, shining from sun up to past sun down, always with family friendly service and extreme dedication to providing the freshest most natural food in the most delicious ways.
Great food. Menu has limited options, but many daily specials available. Frosty mocha's are a must have! Great ambiance and fun place to hang out. Great to go have a coffee/dessert and sit outside with friends.
Nice place to spend some time on the outdoor patio. I've generally just had a latte there, havent ventured much into the food menu. For me the biggest appeal has been the outdoor seating. Spent 2 hours playing hold-em with some friends, and staff seemed cool with it. Big points for that.
I have been going to Cafe Borrone for years, even though I moved from Menlo Park ages ago. I love the casual atmosphere and freshly prepared simple food (open faced sandwiches, lasagne, soup, salads). You can enjoy these with a glass of wine at an outdoor table amidst kids and dogs (in a good way). I love the fact that Cafe Borrone is adjacent to Kepler's Bookstore, one of my favorite non-chain bookstores. A more perfect symbiotic relationship couldn't exist. :)
Finally went to this Menlo Park institution and thought it was great. We sat outside and enjoyed a warm, sunny afternoon. I'll certainly bring my toddler here - huge patio gives her room to safely run around.
I drive all the way from Los Gatos to Menlo Park just for a sandwich at Barrone's. My friends and I love to sit outside. They switch their menu once a week so they almost always have one of my two favorite sandwiches - The Club, and The Smoked Gouda - which I always order on baguette because I am not a fan of focaccia. The frosted mocha is soooo good, made with coffee ice cream and with few espresso beans thrown in. The other food served looks delicious as well, but my sandwiches are such a treat (it's hard for me to get up there a lot) I can never bring myself to order anything else!
If you like coffee and dessert, Borrone's is a place that you must try. Cafe Barrone is a small cafe in Menlo Park, near the BBC, that serves fine coffee drinks and great cakes/pies. The cafe is adjacent to Kepler's bookstore, making it a convenient place to pick up a sunday paper a cup of joe.
If there is a sunny day you HAVE to hit cafe barone. It has the best patio in the peninsula. Watch students, vc's and dog lovers mingle and fight for seats. The prices are a little steep but the atmosphere is perfect.
The food is tastey, although it can be a bit overpriced. It's a great place to sit outside and enjoy food, coffee, and a good book or magazine - especially in the summer. They close at 5pm on Sundays, though, which is a real bummer.
Chic lines and warm earthtones make for a classy decor at Carpaccio. The food is equally trendy, but prepared with
old fashioned attention to detail and served by a well trained wait staff. The house special, Carpaccio, is highly ...
