Canteen Coffee Shop, located inside the Springline development in downtown Menlo Park, has officially opened.
The cafe, by Greg Kuzia Carmel, the chef behind Camper on Santa Cruz Avenue, is located inside CANOPY, a co-working office space at the new 6.4-acre housing, office and retail complex.
It's the first restaurant in Menlo Park's new Springline development to open to customers.

At a visit last week, the coffee shop offered a range of espresso and specialty drinks as well as baked goods by Mountain View's Midwife and the Baker, including cardamom and almond frangipane croissants, cranberry and roasted apple scones, and pumpkin muffins.
Food items coming soon include a quiche with honey-and-mint yogurt, a tuna salad niçoise, a Japanese-style egg salad croissant-wich and a truffled grilled cheese sandwich. The shop is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Other offerings coming to the development in 2023 are Andytown Coffee Roasters, Barebottle Brewing Co., Burma Love, Che Fico, Proper Food, Robin and Mírame.
