We had lunch at havercroft. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Innes and Brydon were welcoming and kind. We loved our lunch. The duck liver pate was superb, frikadels wrapped in cabbage was amazing. Loved the vanilla fudge ice cream. Will be back on our next visit.

Excellent food and service at Havercrofts again. I had the Summer Salad and a pasta with artichokes in lemon cream. Both were excellent. A lunch here is a must do treat if you are staying in or around Stanford. Very highly recommended.
