Joanie's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Palo Alto denizens reserve a special place in their hearts for Joanie's. Locals meet here for coffee or a passable breakfast. The waiters seem to know people's names, if not what they are likely to order. Although it's also open for lunch and dinner, Joanie's is primarily known as a breakfast spot offering waffles, pancakes and omelets.
