Mayfield Bakery & Cafe, Palo Alto, CA

Mayfield Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Review

: Brown butcher paper over white tablecloths, white-washed beams, an open kitchen format and plenty of windows result in a casual, vibrant environment. The California comfort food focuses on seasonal ingredients. Bread and bakery driven dishes are a highlight, as are the desserts. Breakfast and lunch menus are combined so you can have a robust burger for the former or thick sliced bacon and soft scrambled eggs of the season for the latter. Take care to study the ingredients as an unfamiliar pepper on a pizza can deliver more heat than you seek, while a sweet sauce on a savory dish may be ideal for one diner, and an unexpected turn for another. The wine list includes 20-plus wines by the glass and a thoughtful selection of bottles.
