  • Coupa Cafe
    Coupa Cafe: A User’s Guide Venezuelan Cuisine | Fair-Trade Beans | Tech Mecca | Latte Art Sample Menu Beverage: Cafe Caracas, a softer, Venezuelan-style latte Appetizer: empanaditas, a miniature version of the eatery’s empanadas, stuffed with ground beef and cheese Entree: carne mechada arepa, a grilled cornmeal pancake stuffed with venezuelan shredded-beef stew Raves Palo Alto Online named it the best coffee shop 2014 for its “Venezuelan specialties . . . and the amazing aroma.” The Wall Street Journal noted, “Even by Silicon Valley standards, Coupa Café is social and networked,” citing its popularity with tech workers and its high-speed wifi. Inside Tips Because lines are often long at the Palo Alto spot and patrons are encouraged to feel at home, a cozy table can be hard to come by. Be content with grabbing what’s available or come during off-peak hours. Or try one of the café’s other six Bay Area locations. Forgot your cash? If you’re strapped, take note: the cafe takes payment in Bitcoin. Vocab Lesson Guasacaca: a salsa made with avocado that’s tangier than guacamole because it’s made with vinegar rather than lime juice Mechada: a venezuelan stew made with shredded beef, onions, and peppers While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: In the sculpture garden (Lomita Drive, Stanford) on the Stanford campus, stroll among stone and wooden sculptures crafted by artists from New Guinea in 1994. After: Catch a silver-screen classic at the Stanford Theater (221 University Avenue).

  • Mayfield Bakery and Cafe
    Mayfield Bakery & Cafe: A User's Guide American Cuisine | Freshly Baked Goods | Seasonal, Sustainable Ingredients | 100+ Wines By the Bottle Sample Menu Starter: spiced heirloom-pumpkin soup Entree: almond wood-grilled steak with grilled chicories and red-wine soubise Dessert: caramel-apple bread pudding with salted-caramel sauce and whipped cream From the bakery: chocolate-peanut-butter bar with dark-chocolate ganache, milk-chocolate peanut-butter ganache, and a chunky peanut-butter cream Café v. Bakery? Though the bakery supplies the café with its baked goods and desserts, the two are separate entities. The café is a place to enjoy a meal, whereas the bakery is ideal for walk-in orders or grabbing coffee on the way to work. For the Bread Connoisseur: Mayfield’s slow-proofed loaves rest for up to 24 hours, expanding the yeast to produce a darker crust and denser texture. The bakers typically produce 8–10 types of these breads daily. Inside Tips: After you order in the café, pass the time doodling on brown butcher paper placed atop the tablecloth. If you dine in the café later in the evening, you may be rewarded with free loaves of bread as the bakery closes up shop. Vocab Lesson Chicory: this plant’s spicy, bitter leaves are often used in salads, while its ground-up roots make a flavorful coffee substitute or additive. Wheat berry: a full, hulled wheat grain that’s reddish-brown in color and cooked in a fashion similar to rice or pasta for use in salads and side dishes If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Mayfield belongs to the same restaurant group as upscale American eatery The Village Pub (2967 Woodside Road, Woodside) and Californian-inspired spot Spruce (3640 Sacramento Street, San Francisco).

  • Sprinkles Cupcakes
    Sprinkles Cupcakes Cakes were bigger in 2005—most of them, anyway. While a couple of bakeries had become known for their cupcakes, none of them built their entire business around the petite, portable, no-sharing-necessary dessert. Enter former investment banker Candace Nelson, fresh out of renown (now closed) Tante Marie’s pastry school. Nelson seized the moment, spawning an empire of cupcakes in tantalizing, inventive flavors like cuban coffee and triple cinnamon. The first Sprinkles Cupcakes location measured only 600 square feet. The kitchen was even smaller, but Nelson still stocked the shelves with ingredients such as sweet cream butter, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, pure Madagascar bourbon vanilla, and fresh fruit. Eventually, her high standards got national airtime with a role as a judge on the Food Network cooking-contest show Cupcake Wars. The cupcakes are still the main draw at Sprinkles. Indeed, the demand is such that that many locations now boast a Cupcake ATM, a frosting-pink machine that cuts down lines by vending treats straight to customers on the sidewalk. But it’s no longer strictly a cupcake shop. There are cookies, too, and in some cities, you can even get dense, slow-churned ice cream sandwiched between two cupcake tops or scooped into a red-velvet waffle cone. Try This: Red Velvet Cupcake Red velvet is, essentially, chocolate cake with a colorful twist. It’s only natural that it should be the signature flavor at Sprinkles Cupcakes, which specializes in making classic desserts feel fresh with a subtle extra seasoning or two. In 2013, founder and head flavor honcho Candace Nelson told Vanity Fair how she arrived at her version of the quirky but very American flavor, beloved by the Oklahoma family of her husband and co-owner Charles: “I amped up the cocoa, toned down the food coloring, and created a well-balanced cream-cheese frosting.” (Nelson also reported that many L.A. customers weren’t familiar with the Southern delicacy: they’d call it the “red carpet” or “black velvet.”) Today, her version of red velvet is so popular that it’s spawned gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan versions, each using carefully chosen substitutes that retain the original’s richness and silky texture so they don’t have to be renamed “red burlap.”

  • Jamba Juice
    Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it makes additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets. Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. Whole fruits and veggies can be blended into an extensive menu of great-tasting smoothies and freshly squeezed juices. But Jamba Juice’s commitment to keeping healthy eating simple informs its solid-food options, too. Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits. In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

  • Rick's Ice Cream
    The recipes may call for Indian rose syrup, Spanish saffron, and vanilla imported from Indonesia and Madagascar—but all the treats at Rick's Ice Cream look most at home when scooped into crispy waffle cones. Every day since Rick Payne opened the store in 1956, Rick's Ice Cream's staff has used locally produced cream to whip up small batches of their rich ice cream in 48 rotating flavors, 5 gallons at a time. On any given day, they might be adding whole organic blueberries to blueberry ice cream, smashing purple yams from the Philippines for ube ice cream, or swirling black-raspberry marble and chocolate chips through their Sideways cabernet-flavored ice cream. Some of their flavors appear infrequently, such as the beloved black-raspberry crunch, which is loaded with chocolate-covered almonds that bloom from rare chocolate-covered-almond bushes. Italian sodas made with Torani flavorings, from-scratch cookies, and fudge-dipped marshmallows ensure a menu that appeals to the sweet teeth of a diverse clientele. The staff can also forge their ice cream into chilly cakes and cupcakes to help celebrate birthdays, graduations, or Old Man Winter's annual retirement party. For events with 100 or more people, they can also roll out their catering carts to ply partygoers with treats.
