Blue Bottle Coffee Palo Alto Restaurant Review

: Taking over what used to be the front and courtyard of a now-defunct theater and then bookstore, this Blue Bottle café (and HanaHaus collaborative workspace) allows copious indoor and outdoor seating for those seeking their drip and espresso-based coffees. In addition to daily drip, pour-over, espresso, iced coffees and Samovar teas, a selection of pastries, small salads and other light fare are on offer. Whole beans are also available. Prepare to wait a bit after ordering --- if indoor seating is your preference, stake a spot quickly as they go fast.
