The self-proclaimed ‘mom and pop’ microcreamery, Scoop competes daily with other chain ice-cream and frozen yogurt establishments on and around University Avenue, yet still stands head and shoulder above the crowd. The ice cream is made fresh throughout the day in what they call ‘micro batches’ and they keep the ingredients simple, local and organic. Flavours change daily depending on what ingredients are available, some of the most popular flavours being the vegan coconut, vanilla bean, and ‘hella nutella’. Scoop adheres to traditional business values, perceiving the employees as part of the family and running operations in an ethical and responsible fashion, preserving a part of Palo Alto that is essential to locals.

This former barn situated on the original Stanford family farm has been flawlessly restored to its original glory. Nestled into a corner of the Stanford Shopping Centre, the outdoor seating at Tootsie’s is three times larger than the inside seating, making it the ideal place for brunch on one of the Bay Area’s many sunny days. Do not be discouraged by the queue to order, it moves quickly and the dishes are well worth the wait. The lattes are locally considered to be some of the best in the area, the food is excellent and the service unflappable. All breakfast plates come with oven roasted pancetta potatoes made in-house and are the perfect addition to an already impressive stack of pancakes, frittata, or a breakfast panino.
