"Now, Mary and Brian Heffernan's The H&H Company operates six family-friendly or child-focused businesses in downtown Los Altos."
Very recently they sold their 8 Los Altos businesses to "an entity". See Los Altos Town Crier and your local gossip queen for more info.
Forest on First and Bumble are both very, very pricey. Definitely for the very wealthy disengaged patent who wants separation time from the kids without the guilt, and can pay for it
Welcome to the REAL northern California. I hope you do not bring the typical Bay Area attitude with you. We here believe in guns, hunting, Logging, Ranching, God and hard work. I hope that you will provide much needed jobs here. This is coming from a 5th generation Fort Jones family pioneer.
Isn't this reminiscent of one of this paper's April Fool's joke this year?
"Forest on First and Bumble are both very, very pricey"
$16 for salmon isn't that pricey.
There's always McDonalds for the non-wealthy disengaged parent.
Fifteen dollars for two pancakes IS!!!
OMG those places are for caricatures, not real people. Every time I go by there I see COMPLETELY disengaged parents, all dolled up, self absorbed and buried in their cell phones.
It is on my list of AVOID AT ALL COST places. You can have some elbow room and actually dine around non-irritating people in many places around town, but not here. The cost is secondary, you pay in Los Altos, that's the deal, but I don't pay to hang around with those folks, and CERTAINLY not their kids.
Enjoy though...seems quite popular with the newer breed of Los Altos residents. I'm glad it adds to the tax base.
What a truly bizarre place, and its menu pricing is also strange.
Very strange place with a customer base reflective of the establishment.
We like to walk by and people watch. Inevitably someone says "Could you imagine actually going to that place?"
It is great people watching though, in the same way Wal-Mart is great for people watching.
Is it true that 2 pancakes are only one dollar less than the salmon? HA! Only two kinds of people pay 15 bucks for 2 pancakes: Utter fools or someone who is about to die if they don't eat 2 pancakes.
Yup, robot parents on auto-pilot going through the motions without really being there. Probably had their kids thru AI. Can't imagine what they kids are going to turn into.
Shocked to hear that Sergei Brin and Anne Wojicki used to bring their kids here, when they were still together.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
