Thread for Restaurant/Bakery Comments

Original post made by iamhmmm@yahoo.com, East Palo Alto, on May 16, 2013

Some of the most enjoyable threads I've read on PAO & The Almanac have been about restaurants/bakeries. I thought it'd be nice to have an ongoing thread so that folks can comments & recommend their favorite foods at favorite places. So I'll start:

We love the chocolate at Monique's. I prefer the hot chocolate, no matter what the weather & my spouse loves the truffles. I enjoy being able to choose how dark the chocolate, if I want to add another flavor, such as mint, & to specify the fat % of the milk. The servings are perfect in size - large enough to serve as a dessert, small enough to not overwhelm.

Monique's is downtown, on Bryant between University & Hamilton. Parking can be a challenge, but worth it when one is craving topshelf chocolate in liquid or solid form.

hmmmm...

Went back to Flea Street Cafe the other week; always surprised it takes me so long to get back there, and how much I enjoy it.

30 years of organic, sustainable QUALITY food.

Yum.

J Capistrano, thanks for the comment! Flea St. is one of our faves, too. I'm grateful that it's been around so long & is still going strong & still delicious.

Shout out to Chantal Guillon Macarons. I recommended it to a friend in town for a hostess gift. The hostess was very pleased, as she lives in an area minus macarons & loved them. They're also a great gluten-free option.
