Mayfield Bakery & Cafe piques appetite but has spotty service

Some new restaurants take longer to iron out all the kinks, especially ones that are trying to master being both a restaurant and a full-blown bakery. That's what Mayfield Bakery & Cafe is trying to do in the revamped Town & Country Village in Palo Alto. So far, some things work; others are works in progress.

While I find the food delicious at Mayfield, I have twice had an extremely slow waiter who caused unreasonably lengthy waits for beverages, meal, and bill at the end. While I realize the restaurant is busy, this young man needs to step up the pace (it was the same waiter both times). This is not enough to keep me from going back to the restaurant, but it might give me pause if I had to be somewhere in a timely fashion after the meal. I suggest a bit more rigorous training for staff.
