A piece of Venice in Silicon valley

Palo Alto, CA, United States
14 Kudos
Cafe Venetia at University Ave in Palo Alto (right near Stanford University) is my latest addiction. While its Italian & got cute decor, what stands out is their choc drinks. I usually order the mousse al cioccolato (chocolate mousse in a martini glass) which is not only visually appealing but also tasty. Other option is mexican hot chocolate served in a cup & you need to scoop it out with a dessert spoon (yummm!!!). Cakes,pastries & sandwiches also exist here. Tiramisu & Opera cafe (choc + some waffer I think) are the hit. Place is open late & great to people watch.
