Palo Alto CA: Joanie's
For our morning meeting, Chris and I convened at Joanie's. It's on California Avenue in Palo Alto, a low-key part of town that hasn't fundamentally changed over the decades. Joanie clearly knows her breakfasts. This is the spot for hearty breakfasts. Ben and I both tried the brioche French toast with fruit. The bread was thick and gooey in the middle, crunchy on the outside. My strawberries were very fresh, firm, and sweet. In a fit of guilt, I also ordered some oatmeal, which was excellent. It seems to have been made with milk because it really didn't need any extra cream.
