An ample menu of hamburgers and breakfast/dinner items. Nothing to knock your socks off, but food is fresh, prepared well and served quickly.

Came here with a friend and we both enjoyed our lunches! I had the banh mi and was surprised at how good it was for a place that recommends their own burgers. My friend had the croque madame sandwich which was also good. Friendly staff that didn't mind us lingering. For university ave, you can't beat the value.

We entered while looking for a place to have lunch during our break. It was pretty empty for University Ave standards, but we stayed since we were told food would be out fast given the low occupancy. The service was ok. We ordered burgers and salads. The food came out after a longer time than expected; nothing horrible, but still... More

They promise you the best burgers in town... Disappointed, the bun was dry and the medium rare steak as well. Service was friendly and fast.

We were looking for somewhere different - there is certainly loads to choose from in Palo Alto - and decided to pop in for breakfast on a week day. Great service! Stunning hot chocolate!!! Perfect Eggs Benedict! Actually everyone's food looked pretty delicious. we will be back again soon.

We did a drive through Palo Alto and decided to eat at Café Epi. There were 4 of us and we all had something different and loved it. I ordered the fruity salad and I must admit it was one of the best salads I have ever had! Yum!

Their ceasar salad was terrible today. There were gigantic croutons in the salad, and it was so salted that I couldn't eat it.

A friend and I were in Palo Alto for another event and decided to get some breakfast. Café Epi had tables available so we decided to give it a try. We both had the Florentine Benedict which was very good. The English muffin was a nice size (thinner), and the eggs were cooked nicely. Restaurants often put far too much... More
