Chillin' Out with a Green Chile Scramble - Joanie's Cafe, Palo Alto

Joanie’s CafĂ© is one of my favorites in old downtown Palo Alto (Calfornia street). I especially love breakfast on a Sunday because they have the farmer’s market going on so you can submit your name for a table and then roam around until it’s ready. It’s a multi-purpose day: you get breakfast and some flowers or food for your week which is perfect for us multi-tasking, food-loving, over-scheduled Bay Area people (or is it just me?)
Dishes
  • Scramble with green chiles, cheese and salsa. This is my ultimate favorite (although I know it sounds weird). It’s comforting yet has the slight kick of the green (mild) chiles.   **10/02/12 update:  my favorite dish has been removed from the menu!**
  • Grilled chicken with roasted eggplant, avocado and aoli. Nice soup on the side (French onion?)
Expect a wait though – this place appears to be a favorite of many people in the Bay Area!
