I used to visit Dr. Maher when he was with Sears Optical in Cupertino. He is a doctor who is trully interested in his patients' well being. After he left Sears Optical in Cupertino, he was too far away for us to see him. Now that he's back in the area, he is once again our Dr. He is also great with kids.
We stop in at this location once and a while when we are hungry and on our way home from Santa Cruz. Excellent pizza and salads. This location also has large wide-screen TVs, video games an upstairs party room and ample downstairs seating. You order and your items are delivered to your table when ready. Service can be a bit slow, but worth the wait.
This place is nothing fancy, but it's perfect for hungry college students who are looking for large portions at reasonable prices. Their cheese grits are fabulous and their waffles and omelettes are light and fluffy. As with other areas on Franklin Street, there is very little parking.
This newly rebuilt branch is wonderful with natural lighting, ample computers and tables, a great children's area and easy checkout and reservation policies. They also offer a summer reading program for kids that we're participated in for the past 3 years.
Wonderful place to stay on campus at UNC Chapel Hill. Convenient to Franklin Street (the campus' main drag) and its lively restaurants, clubs, etc. Four star restaurant on the premises with great southern inspired food with a twist. Rooms are nicely decorated and service is excellent.
This is a newer New York Art Deco style diner that serves just about anything you'd care to order including breakfast all day long. Each booth has a juke box and they feature a wide variety of daily specials including fabulous crab cakes and the "Catch of the Day." Portions are truck driver-sized, so make sure you don't frequent this place too often unless you're underweight!
Friendly's is know for its ice cream sundaes, but is also an excellent place to stop for your basic burger and fries, club sandwiches, soups. A good place to take the kids.
We recently attended a large gathering at Meadow's Edge which is an historic house turned country club that sits right on the Great South Bay. Beautiful old home, wonderful views, an excellent place for weddings and other large gatherings. Excellent variety of buffett items and desserts. Cons- The wines served here were mediocre and it's a bit pricey
The San Jose Museum of Art is a great place to take the family. Besides their many permanent works such as their fabulous blown glass chandeliers and other sculpture, they also have some new media exhibits that seem to fascinate kids. Admission is reasonable and free for kids under 6. We also went on a docent led tour here recently that we really enjoyed.
We stopped here this past summer.. Their pizza was excellent and their prices were a bargain. The interior is clean and bright and they also offer a variety of salads that were excellent. While we did not sample their other entrees, their menu was extensive. They also had a party going on in a back room that they reserve for special events.
