Best cafes: Main St. Coffee Roasting Co., Redwood City
I’ve been working in Redwood City for almost two years, and this is still the greatest cafe I’ve found: A full menu for breakfast and lunch, freshly prepared good food, reasonable prices, plenty of parking.
They have really good food — not just cafe stuff — but real substantial stuff for breakfast and lunch. Often available is home-baked pie that’s just unbelievably good.
Frequented by both bikers and cops, hip mamas with strollers and software geeks, lawyers and workers from the nearby light-industrial businesses, this modern, cozy joint is family run, and staffed by genuinely friendly people who will remember your coffee order the third day you come in.
The small seating area in the interior is made up for by a large patio, and except on really rainy days, the patio is comfortable and usually crowded with people.
