In 1927—almost the exact chronological midpoint between America’s first car and its first bulky computer—Palo Alto broke ground on the sleepy city’s Varsity Theatre.
For fifty years, the theatre treated moviegoers to some of the twentieth century’s most beloved films. Then, following a brief stint as a bookstore, the Varsity Theatre was revitalized in 2015 through a partnership with our friends at HanaHaus.
Now, the cafe is one of our most spacious locations, with an airy courtyard and a communal workspace.
In addition to our espresso, blend, and single origin coffees, Blue Bottle’s Palo Alto cafe on the University Avenue thoroughfare also serves a sweet and savory menu for breakfast, lunch, or an early evening meal. And, in what some might consider a stunning (though not altogether surprising, given the geography) departure for Blue Bottle, Wi-Fi is available for all.
