Looks can be deceiving

University Cafe is proof that looks can be deceiving. From the outside University Cafe looks like a fine eatery with an aroma that says ""welcome"". However once inside its a different story. The staff are total snobs who will disrespect or ignore you while the food is too greasy. Just to understand how greasy it is, you will feel the grease on the box if you order take out. A word of advice to the staff; jus... view more

Lots of seats, free internet, good food

I have met up with friends and coworkers at University Coffee Cafe many times - great place to sip coffee and do work while waiting. There is free wifi and plenty of seating. Plus, the coffee is reasonably priced for the area. Highly recommended as a resting place before heading off to do other things

really bad

I decided to try this place while in the area on a business trip. What a mistake! The food was almost inedible. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

The worst service!

Went to the University Cafe as a recommendation from my sister. We walked in and were not greeted. We stood around for a minute before we were motioned to a table by a passing waiter. Water was promptly placed on the table and menus brought and then...nothing. No waiter to take our order no attempt to get drink orders...nothing! My bf flagged someone down and we ordered and bread and with a tasty tomato dipping... view more

Bad Customer Service

Food was OK--once we got it. We waited at least 45 minutes before asking about our food. Once the food was finally brought out, it was not to order. I am allergic to onions and asked for no onions on my meal, but it arrived with onions literally all over it. I sent it back and it took more than an hour to receive my meal. Patrons at tables who came in 30 minutes and 45 minutes after us received their meals with... view more

Best ambiance, food, service. Great coffee. AeONsafe WiFi

Truly a landmark spot in Palo Alto. In the middle of Unviersity Avenue, both the exterior and interior represent the Stanford University avenue scene. Great food, service and crowds of students and professionals working, meeting, and chatting. This hotspot uses the AeONsafe secured WiFi, which is faster than AnchorFree and fully encrypted wireless. Since it is secured, I work there more frequently.

Bossy Waiters

The service here is absolutely awful! I went here with a friend for lunch. After we were done with our meal, they took away our plates, utensils, and napkins as we continued to chat. At one point some gum that was stuck under the table got stuck on my sweater - gross!!! Since they had taken away my napkin, I took the napkin from the table next to me to clean off the nastiness on my sweater. \r \r At that point... view more

Not a happy coffee house

With only fair coffee and mediocre food, the University Cafe is, however, a nice place to hang out and talk. But not much else. The combination of a sit-down restaurant and coffee house is really not a workable arrangement, with those eating crowded together in a noisy dining area and coffee drinkers corralled to the back of the establishment. If you want a good cup of coffee, there are plenty of other nearby option... view more
