Where everybody knows your name HOMEMADE FOOD AND LOCAL BOOKS ARE THE DRAW AT MAIN STREET CAFE & BOOKS By Sheila Himmel

E

ating at Main Street Cafe & Books is like dropping in at a neighbor’s house, more about the friendliness than the food. Many customers are greeted by name, asked about their latest trip or their kid’s T-ball game and if they want their usual latte. Solo diners and sippers often sit at the counter and chat with the staff and Jamie Tomaselli, nine-year owner of the cafe at the V-neck end of downtown Los Altos, where Main Street meets State Street. Even if you’re a stranger in town, the staff makes an effort to be nice. Breakfast is served all afternoon. There’s nothing as complicated as

omelets or even fried eggs, but you can get scrambled eggs with cheese on a croissant ($6.95) and add bacon, ham or sausage for $1.25. The granola is made in-house, as are most of the baked goods. The fruit and the orange juice are fresh. Plates, bowls and silverware have heft. A good cup of coffee is $1.55, in a solid china mug if you’re staying. There are plenty of opportunities for vegetarians, as long as they eat eggs and dairy products. Vegetable salads range from spring mix to Caesar to Mediterranean (with olives, artichoke hearts and feta cheese).

a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or turkey breast with cheddar cheese. Both come on white bread, with a cookie, for $5.95. Tables aren’t crammed together, but if you’re in the vicinity of crying child or an intense conversation, you’re going to hear every word. If you’d rather read, pick a spot in another of the cafe’s several venues. In addition to the counter, you can sit out on the sidewalk or in two dining areas in the front and one in the back, called the Chat Room. It can be reserved for groups, with breakfast or lunch served. When we visited, the cafe’s ample walls were devoted to previews of works by Silicon Valley Open Studios artists. Local artists always are featured, as are local authors and local products such as Preston’s candies from Burlingame, and Alice’s Stick Cookies from Redwood City. There’s a good variety of magazines, from Glamour and People to Cook’s Illustrated and Utne Reader. You are invited, sensibly, to buy the magazine and then read it. As for the book aspect of Main Street Cafe and Books, it’s a small and quirky selection of new releases, bestsellers, classics and local authors. On the Local Authors shelf, the only name I recognized was architect Julia Morgan, subject of an historical study of the Asilomar Conference Grounds. When the cuckoo clock struck the hour, its workings deconstructed and it played the music box version of “Around the World” (Around the world, I searched for you. I traveled on when hope was gone, to keep a rendezvous.) Try getting that out of your head. V

Quiche ($6.95) recently came in three varieties: ham, spinach and Mediterranean. Add $3 and you get house salad or a “cup” (that is, small bowl) of soup. The butternut squash soup tasted homemade, if a little sweet. The quiche would have been better if it hadn’t been microwaved. “Le Tuna” ($7.95) is a gigantic croissant sandwiching tuna salad, lettuce and tomatoes. I looked at it and thought, “No way will I eat this whole thing,” but then, I did.

Alcohol

Cobb Salad ($9.95) featured chunks of tender grilled chicken breast, ripe avocado, crisp bacon, teensy halved cherry tomatoes, slices of hard-boiled egg and sprinkles of blue cheese. All were laid upon a bed of romaine lettuce, not chopped as Cobbs usually are. My favorite item came from the bakery: a perfect oatmeal-raisin cookie with slight tooth resistance on the outside, soft and chewy inside. Kids 10 and under are welcome to

8FFLFOE NMOVIETIMES

NMOVIEREVIEWS

THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Albert Brooks meets Hal Ashby meets Judd Apatow in “The Five-Year Engagement,” a new romantic comedy whose pessimism, sweetness, raunch and loopiness make for a pleasantly offbeat blend. Jason Segel and Emily Blunt star as Tom and Violet, a San Francisco couple ready to take their relationship to the next level ... or so they think. Planning follows proposal, but everything gets put on hold when Violet gets a chance at having it all. Director Nicholas Stoller — who cowrote the script with Segel — is equally adept at crafting legitimate “aw shucks” sweetness that doesn’t lose the film’s “cool,” so to speak. The inherently male point-of-view somewhat upsets the film’s balance, but it also means a thorough exploration of the unfair-er sex’s postfeminist defensiveness. Because this is an Apatow production, absurdity is welcome, the film can be too eager to shock, and the running time creeps past two hours. But the heroes remain likeable, thanks to Segel and Blunt. The film is full of funny performances and its emotional range distinguishes it, up to and including a climax that achieves true romance. Rated R for sexual content and language. Two hours, four minutes. — P.C.

THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS ---

(Century 16, Century 20) “Wallace & Gromit.” “Chicken Run.” “Arthur Christmas.” In its consistent excellence, England’s Aardman Animations might well be called EuroPixar if its U.S. distributor weren’t Sony, and if clay didn’t trump pixels at Aardman. Aardman’s streak continues with “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” 88 minutes of sublime silliness. Due to its often sophisticated humor, “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” should appeal in equal measure to adults and children. The madcap plot concerns the also-ran Pirate Captain, who covets the “Pirate of the Year” award but stands little chance of winning it for his bumbling plundering. All bets are off when The Pirate Captain and his crew haplessly board the Beagle. Though they discover Darwin has no booty, the naturalist recognizes the Pirate Captain’s “parrot” Polly to be the last living dodo. And so our hero resets his sights on the Royal Society’s “Scientist of the Year” award. The story doesn’t skimp on the looting, cutlasses, plankwalking and funny hats, but everything gets a winningly ironic spin. The picture offers visual delights in old-school Claymation style, with an assist from some CGI effects (plus, pie-throwing in 3D). The production design comes courtesy of three-time Oscar nominee Norman Garwood (“Brazil”), and the soundtrack includes the Pogues, the Clash and Flight of the Conchords. Though the film is full of Anglophile easter eggs for adults, kids will appreciate the action, the goofy characters and sentiments like this one: “It’s only impossible if you stop to think about it.” Rated PG for mild action, rude humor and some language. One hour, 28 minutes. — P.C. Continued on next page

(Guild) “Monsieur Lazhar” is a sensitive and subtle work, with the deceptive simplicity of a well-honed short story. “Monsieur Lazhar” takes an interest in both its titular hero, an Algerian immigrant who comes to teach a sixth-grade class, and his troubled students. After students discover their teacher’s body hanging in their classroom, Mr. Lazhar walks into the school and volunteers his services, explaining he taught in Algiers for 19 years. He turns out to be just what the students need, and perhaps the job is just what he needs. The director gently depicts the love-hate relationship between the suicide’s witnesses: class clown Simon, given to aggressive acting out, and Alice, who quickly takes a shine to the school’s sole male classroom instructor. The keen leading performances never hit a false note, but Simon gets the showpiece with an emotional breakthrough about his late teacher. Rated PG-13 for thematic material, a disturbing image and language. One hour, 34 minutes. — P.C. )

(Century 16, Century 20) This new G-rated Disneynature documentary may prove a “gateway drug” of sorts to get young kids interested in nature and science-themed documentaries, and so its stylistic crimes are probably excusable. Like most docs of its ilk, “Chimpanzee” allows information to take a back seat to manufactured drama, ruthlessly constructed to maximize short attention spans. The film captures impressive flyon-the-tree footage of a baby chimp in his formative years. “Oscar” begins in the company of mother “Isha” but (spoiler alert) when a Disney-style parental tragedy separates the two, Oscar bonds with alpha male “Freddy.” The narration, read by Tim Allen, would love to turn “Chimpanzee” into “The Lion King,” and it’s full of anthropomorphisms about “our boy Oscar.” Sometimes the commentary is downright puzzling. Following a climactic battle, Allen intones, “Teamwork has beaten brute force” (what movie is he watching?). Decide for yourself if the narration is a necessary concession for kids. Rated G. One hour, 18 minutes — P.C.

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS --

(Century 16, Century 20) As written by Drew Goddard (“Cloverfield”) and Joss Whedon (“The Avengers”), “Cabin” is a next-generation “Scream,” a horror film that tongue-in-cheekily deconstructs its own genre. On that level, it’s a hoot. If this film isn’t quite as much fun or as scary as “Scream,” it is more audacious, and that creative energy is the chief selling point. With the help of crack cinematographer Peter Deming of “Scream,” Goddard directs this ambitious sci-fi/ horror hybrid with authority, and the duo orchestrate some potent visual jokes as well. One involves a background slaying

Support Local Business

that’s ignored by foreground characters (a trope we also saw in “Scream”); another hilariously spoofs J-horror (Japanese horror films like “The Ring”). Horror cinema has a tendency to indict the audience, and drawing attention to that is not a new idea, but “Cabin” presents a fresh narrative twist, and forces the audience to wonder if they should root for the slain or the slayers. Rated R for horror violence and gore, language, drug use and sexuality/nudity. One hour, 35 minutes. — P.C.

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS --

(Palo Alto Square) Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress” plays like a Todd Solondz movie on Prozac. The characters are quirky outsiders, but they kind of like it that way, and they’re determined to change the world, one dance at a time. This muddled fourth feature from writer-director Stillman (“The Last Days of Disco”) tackles campus life at Seven Oaks, an East Coast college that’s a hotbed of — well, nothing, really. Stillman follows a de facto “Youth Outreach” group, whose mission includes raising the campus’ fashion consciousness (no “grunge”), eliminating distressing odors, and working at suicide prevention by offering donuts, coffee and supposedly depression-alleviating tap-dance lessons. The satire is about as cutting as a plastic knife through a porterhouse. Stillman establishes the main characters as naive, self-unaware characters, but the ways in which he reveals their vulnerabilities suggest we oughtn’t rush to judge them. As humane as that sounds, the chilly tone of the script and the performances hold viewers at arm’s length and leave them much more perplexed than enlightened about human behavior. Rated PG-13 for mature thematic content including sexual material. One hour, 39 minutes. — P.C.

THE HUNGER GAMES ---

(Century 16, Century 20) Even those unfamiliar with Suzanne Collins’ book may find Gary Ross’ film somewhat less than suspenseful. But if “The Hunger Games” on screen doesn’t exactly catch fire, its savvy pop culture mash-up and the charge of teens in life-and-death peril remain intact. In a retro-futuristic dystopia, the 1-percenters long ago crushed the revolt of the 99-percenters. The rule of fear hinges largely on “the Hunger Games,” an annual compulsory lottery that demands 12- to 18-year-old “tributes” to submit to a televised death match. Two weeks, 24 contestants, and only one victor allowed to walk away alive. Oddly, the early scenes laying this groundwork tend to be considerably more lively than the 74th Annual Games themselves, a sign of Ross’ lack of experience as an action director and the film’s squeamishness when it comes to depicting the story’s gruesomely violent side. Straight-arrow-shooting Katniss makes a compelling feminist hero, and Lawrence’s resonant performance delivers. The film’s striking production design goes a long way, and the story could be a conversation-starter for families about the voyeurism and willing manipulation of the American viewing public. Rated PG-13 for intense violent thematic material and disturbing images, all involving teens. One hour, 23 minutes. — P.C.
