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.
