Tablecloths, fine china, and finger sandwiches speak of refinement during high tea or tea parties at Lisa’s Tea Treasures Menlo Park. During afternoon tea services, guests sip a selection of 23 loose-leaf teas—such as strawberry darjeeling, lemon mint, and Winter Solstice—and nibble on scones and sandwiches inspired by the food of Europe’s culinary capitals. The menu lists bites from Greece, Italy, and France, including Chicken Parisian croissants, salmon mousse, and cucumber-mint cream cheese. A fresh scone with devonshire cream completes any tea party, and evoke thoughts of England other than your recurring dream of building a cricket pitch in your backyard. In addition to the fine fare, the tearoom itself oozes class with delicate trinkets on display, floral wallpaper, and small chandeliers gently lighting the space.

Back a Yard Caribbean-American Grill: A User’s Guide From-Scratch Caribbean Cuisine | Southern Barbecue | Addictive Jerk Chicken | Corn Festivals Sample Dishes Jerk chicken: served with fried plantains, rice, and beans Barbecue: pork spare ribs served with fries, a warm roll, and coleslaw Seafood: fried snapper breaded with a special blend of herbs and spices Dessert: sweet-potato pudding Who's in the Kitchen? Chef-owner Robert Simpson’s techniques and recipes are the foundations for both Back a Yard locations: the one in downtown San Jose, and the original in Menlo Park. He began cooking at age 6 alongside his grandmother in Jamaica, and he went on to receive his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America. Inside Tips Parking at the Menlo Park location can be tricky because it's all on the street. But the San Jose location is a bit easier, since Back a Yard validates parking at a huge garage nearby. Don't let the hole-in-the-wall exterior of the original Menlo Park location fool you: inside, it's all colors, reggae tunes, and smiles. Vocab Lesson Plantain: very popular in Caribbean dishes, these starchy fruits are a slightly larger cousin of the banana and must be cooked before serving. Corn festivals: sweet, fritter-like treats made of cornmeal. They're deep-fried and often served with something more savory, especially fish. Culture Lesson: "Back a Yard" isn't a typo. It's a term that means, quite simply, "back home." It refers to the spirit and welcoming nature of life in Jamaica.

What to Do: Besides eat and talk to friends, many people rely on Cafe Borrone as a place to read, write, and study. Stanford University is just a couple miles away, after all. Inside Tips Parking is free in the garage below the plaza. Vegetarians and omnivores alike rave about the veggie melt, which is served open-faced with on a sweet baguette with sautéed mushrooms, sliced avocado, roma tomatoes, and muenster and swiss cheeses melted on top.
