I had a great time with Friends there last Friday. This is always a good place to go when you're having drinks in Palo Alto. Nice, diverse atmosphere, and the bartendars are super friendly. If you're in Palo Alto, Stop by! Especailly Friday and Saturday nights, music is hip hop and dancing is fantastic!!
The Peet's on Middlefield makes good lattes and cappucinos. Nothing fancy but gets the job done. If you come often enough they actually try to remember your name unlike some other large coffee chains.
Each cup of this wonderful coffee is hand made to customers wishes from several varieties of coffee. So you may have to wait in line especially in the mornings. But it is worth it
