This place makes great, somewhat unconvential drinks, but they are decidedly on the pricey side. To their credit, they still have a free drink card, which takes a little (little) bit of the sting out of the price tag. 4 star rather than 5 star rating because of price.
This place has great drinks, and some things you don't see very often, like a blended coffee and peanut butter drink. They are, however, prohibitively expensive; Old Pacific Coffee is less creative, but much more affordable, and is on the same road. It's a Grind has good ambiance, nice employees, and although I've been to several of their locations, this one is still my favorite.
OPC makes excellent blended drinks, esp. the coconut. I prefer the Winchester Rd. location to this one, but there is good continuity in how the drinks are made between the two locations. Would give 5 stars if they hadn't discontinued their free cofffee card.
OPC makes delicious blended drinks, and they have a particularly good coconut syrup. Their price is average for gourmet coffee drinks, no particular bargain but definitely not a ripoff, either. I would give 5 stars, but I'm disappointed they've discountinued their free drink card. It was a particularly good deal when they still had it, as they gave 2 stamps on Tuesdays. I particularly liked the Winchester Rd. location.
The food at Luigi's is decent, but doesn't warrant the price tag. They are comparable to / more than Round Table-- not sure why. Try Mary's across the street in the Factory Outlets for a cheaper, nearby alternative. (Though I would still pick Round Table or Shasta Pizza Co. before either of these.)
Drinks here are good, but they are a little more expensive than elsewhere (i.e. Rusty Nail, OK Corral), and there is nothing to justify the higher price. The patrons, however, leave much to be desired- when my daughter and her best friend went, a patron stumbled out drunk and barely missed puking all over the friend's shoes. Wasn't an auspicious introduction to the place.
...still prefer Round Table or Shasta Pizza Co. No particular objection, just prefer the others. Mary's is, however, less expensive than Luigi's across the street.
Only used the Shasta Pizza on Victor Ave. once (out of the way), but we order from the one by us almost every week-- on Tuesday they have a buy one, get one free offer. So, for about $26, which is almost exactly the price of a large specialty pizza at Round Table, you can get TWO pizzas from Shasta Pizza company on Tuesdays, and it's not limited to plain cheese or pepperoni, either-- garlic chicken, Cottonmouth Cure, etc. are fair game as well. Try the combo sampler as well, the chicken strips and cheese sticks are really good.
Duarte's cream of green chile soup is delicious, especially when paired with their fresh, still warm sourdough / French bread. The price has soared in the last few years, or I would give 5 stars. Their fried oyster sandwich is also very good. Good atmosphere.
The Half Moon Bay Bakery is a great intersection of price and taste-- good food at good prices. A variety of tasty treats-- try the "people bones" (chocolate chip cookies shaped like dog bones).
