Restaurants

More than 150 restaurants call the Midpeninsula home From breakfast to dinner and any time in between, Palo Alto visitors can find a place to dine. In the mood for fancy French cuisine? Palo Alto’s got that. Prefer piping-hot pizza? Look no more. But if you are looking for the classics, these five downtown establishments will fit the bill. There’s often a line to order — and a bit of a scramble to get a quiet, corner spot — but it’s worth the wait at Coupa Cafe, which offers single-estate, organic and fair-trade coffee from Venezuela, coupled with morning and French pastries and traditional Venezuelan fare. People may come because Coupa is a Wi-Fi hotspot, but they definitely stay for those Venezuelan specialties (including arepas, a sandwich facsimile made with cornmeal griddle cakes) and the chocolates, bonbons and truffles. Plus, lots of Silicon Valley wheelers and dealers have been known to hang here.
