Calafia Cafe & Market A-Go-Go Restaurant Review

: Former Google chef Charlie Ayers opened Calafia as his way of "going public," and the venue hits all the key notes of a modern, hip California café. Pedigreed local ingredients and an extensive selection of vegetarian and vegan options fill the menu, along with rich offerings for carnivores such as a distinctive guanciale-burrata pizza. Additional items include grain and noodle bowls, panini, tacos, burgers and salads, as well as fresh squeezed juices and smoothies. Wine, beer, saké, cocktails and a full coffee and tea menu complete the beverage program. Mostly seasonal desserts include the gluten free Calafia banana split to share. In the spirit of Silicon Valley, tables feature tablet-based ordering for diners in a hurry. See pictures of the food, place your order, pay your bill, and even play some games. Communal, individual tables, and bar seating are available. The self-checkout market next door offers prepared and packaged food, a salad bar and a deli counter with pastries, sandwiches, and specials for the local high school at lunchtime.
