Good Coffee After 9:00 pm?

Original post made by Help! on Aug 22, 2013

Does anyone know a place to get and drink good coffee after 9:00pm in Palo Alto?

Peets, Starbucks, Philz, and the specialty shops all seem to close at or before 9:00.

Cafe Venetia on Univ is open til 11pm & later on weekends. Coupa's open til 11pm. You're asking here instead of Yelping it? Yelp may have some updated suggestions :-)

The Starbucks on the corner of ECR and Stanford Ave. stays open until 11.

re Yelp - never support Yelp - they extort small businesses

back on topic - good question, and answers!

Yeah, but thing w/Yelp is that you can look up a type of business & city, find a list of them & check the details. It's very easy to then find a place close by that's open.

Hmmm, I don't disagree, Yap gets high placement when you google a biz.

But ask any small biz owner about Yalp's tactics and constant calls ("pay us and you can control the negative reviews") and they will tell you the scelp business model seems more akin to a couple 'Wiseguys' knocking on the door.

No offense to wiseguys, of course....


Agree with you that a quick google gets you most of the relevant info someone needs on a first pass anyway.

Now... back to COFFEE!!

Well, I did try Cafe Venetia and Coupa Cafe. They are indeed open late, and they both have excellent coffee and espresso drinks. Worth the trip. Thanks for the suggestions. Both also have dangerously attractive sweets.

Well, gosh, that darn evil Yelp did help. Glad you enjoyed!
