I'm always on the hunt for a good coffee frappe when traveling, and Palo Alto Cafe did not disappoint. They make a very good, thick, mocha frappe here using no commercial frappe powder, fresh roast coffee, and real chocolate. Delicious!

I highly recommend this place, they roast their own coffee and it is great, you don't see this in area anymore after invasion of corporate coffee shops. Their breakfast is excellent with great pricing. If you are in the area don't miss it.

Parking is a bit of a problem but after that it's a delight. There is a full complement of coffee choices and desserts not to mention sandwiches. The staff is efficient, helpful and friendly.
