We had a very nice lunch this past weekend at the cafe at the Cantor Center for Visual Arts next to the Stanford Campus and close by the Stanford Shopping Center. Called the Cool Cafe, it's run by chef Jesse Cool who also runs Menlo Park's Late for the Train and Flea Street Cafe. She also used to co-own Two Fools in Half Moon Bay, but sold it a number of years ago.

I had a delicious seafood chowder with a side of lucious bread. The salad had these wonderful radishes called watermelon daikon, which I found later at the grocery store. Most of the food served is organic. They also serve beer and wine.

The museum is wonderful as well and the cafe serves dinner on Thursday nights till 8:00. There was a sign that said it was the best-kept dining secret in Palo Alto. Until now, I guess. :-)

Click on the link below and then click on Cafe to see the menu. And, if you go, don't forget to check out The Gates of Hell!
