Waiting line is too long for the lousy food that you'll get. The hummus is nothing compared to the real hummus. Will skip it next time.

Visited Stanford university and walked around Palo Alto town and attracted by the bread. We ordered Salad and Chicken with 2 side orders and it was simply blown me away. It was so delicious and yummy. I will come back again for sure.
