Coupa Cafe opens in Los Altos

Uploaded: Dec 19, 2018
Local string of coffee spots Coupa Cafe has opened its newest location at 4748 El Camino Real in Los Altos.

The new Coupa opened earlier this month in the ground floor of the Colonnade apartment complex, which is owned by Stanford University and populated by many faculty and staff. Six of Coupa's eight cafes are located on the Stanford campus.

Coupa owner Jean Paul Coupal said previously that Stanford approached him to see if he would want to open a cafe at the building.

The Los Altos location serves the cafe's typical espresso, coffee and tea as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers free WiFi. View the menu here.

Coupa was born in downtown Palo Alto in 2004 and has steadily expanded since then. The owners plan to open another location at 825 Marshall St. in downtown Redwood City in 2019. (Stanford is also building a satellite campus in Redwood City.)

The Los Altos Coupa is open Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (It’s closed Sundays.) Happy hour is offered daily from 3 p.m. until closing.

Congrats to Coupa Cafe!

However it would be nice if they opened a Cafe at 3457 El Camino Real where the have an illegal warehouse in a retail location.

I'm sure folks living and working nearby would enjoy the "espresso, coffee and tea as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers free WiFi. " that the owners are providing in Los Altos.

Anon--How evil of Coupa Cafe to have a warehouse. I bet you the landlord dosen't mind. Why don't you offer to open a mom and pop store in that location. Better let Winter Dellanbach know
