    Both Keplers and Cafe Borrone hold a special place in my heart. Aside from the fact that Cafe Borrone has delicious food and is a great place to relax and hang out with friends AND the fact that Keplers is an amazing independent bookstore… I met my husband many years ago when I was working at Borrone’s and he was working at Keplers! Not only is the cafe and Keplers a perfect combination but apparently their employees were a perfect combo too!! So many good memories in Menlo Park!!!

  3. I don’t think I can beat the above comment, but I love books and good food–and books about good food!

    Our favorite breakfast place, flashed a couple teenage boys outside of Keplers as a novice breastfeeder so it will always have a place in my heart πŸ™‚

    Yay! Two of my favorite places! We stopped by Kepler’s last night in a hurry because I forgot my hardback copy of Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix at work (haha) and I needed the paperback anyway to save my hardback edition. There was an MD speaking on his book about overeating and it was fascinating to listen as I crept by to grab harry potter from the children’s section. Anyway, love Kepler’s and we eat at borrone’s at least once a week πŸ™‚

    I’ve also joined JITC! Thanks Jane!

    I’m in Palo Alto and go by Cafe Borrone all the time, but I’ve but never tried it–a gift certificate would be the perfect way to remedy that!
