University Cafe is proof that looks can be deceiving. From the outside University Cafe looks like a fine eatery with an aroma that says "welcome".

However once inside its a different story. The staff are total snobs who will disrespect

University cafe has a great location and good variety of desserts. They have huge chocolate cake slices and big fruit tarts for a price of a regular one. Good place to hang out with friends, or quietly work on your homework, or even read a book.

I have met up with friends and coworkers at University Coffee Cafe many times - great place to sip coffee and do work while waiting. There is free wifi and plenty of seating. Plus, the coffee is reasonably priced for the area. Highly

This is a great little coffee shop. It is close by Stanford university and downtown Palo Alto. You will always find many customers talking, reading and working on laptops. Be sure to stop when you are in the area.

I decided to try this place while in the area on a business trip. What a mistake! The food was almost inedible. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Went to the University Cafe as a recommendation from my sister. We walked in and were not greeted. We stood around for a minute before we were motioned to a table by a passing waiter. Water was promptly placed on the table and menus

Food was OK--once we got it. We waited at least 45 minutes before asking about our food. Once the food was finally brought out, it was not to order. I am allergic to onions and asked for no onions on my meal, but it arrived with onions

Truly a landmark spot in Palo Alto. In the middle of Unviersity Avenue, both the exterior and interior represent the Stanford University avenue scene. Great food, service and crowds of students and professionals working, meeting, and

The service here is absolutely awful! I went here with a friend for lunch. After we were done with our meal, they took away our plates, utensils, and napkins as we continued to chat. At one point some gum that was stuck under the table

With only fair coffee and mediocre food, the University Cafe is, however, a nice place to hang out and talk. But not much else. The combination of a sit-down restaurant and coffee house is really not a workable arrangement, with those
