    Great rendition of Off The Grid with a special South Bay twist. Local musicians often play during prime hours, and on a clear summer night, the moon comes out to light up the festivities. Wonderful. -- Jesse Johnston via Foursquare

    At lunch time, get in line on the right side, and be ready to give your order when they say "next". After you order, go to the register, stand on the left, and look for the guy who took your order. -- Traci Wilbanks via Foursquare

    Want to swim in a soup of startup geeks? Come in here for your daily dose of "It's kind of a Groupon for..." and "Facebook API is all f...". I always see fellow Y Combinator founders in here. -- Arthur Chang via Foursquare

    Use your FiveStars Card for points towards 1 Free Latte/Cappuccino/Fountain Drink, then eventually 50% Off Your Next Meal, and finally 1 Free Meal! Ask for one at the register if you don't have one. -- FiveStars via Foursquare

    Although a bit pricy and pretentious, everything here is absolutely phenomenal. Hands down, Alexander's makes the best ham and cheese croissant I have ever had. Every bite elicits an exclamation. -- Erica Kaye via Foursquare

    Great place to work. A real cafe, like you'll find in North Beach in the City.…Nothing slick. Also, some sidewalk tables/seating and they roast their own beans! -- Teresa Dentino via Foursquare

    Try out the super burrito, but as for roasted chilis in the burrito. For extra fun, snag a side of habanero salsa. Delicious! -- mario anima via Foursquare

    Get lunch, listen in on the pitches being made at the next table. If they are going to broadcast their IPO or new funding proposal, you might as well listen in. -- John Loughney via Foursquare

    Best coffee in Sunnyvale. That's not saying a whole lot... But this is a whole lot better than Starbucks! The atmosphere is good, there's good Wi-Fi, and they even have some fresh gluten free snacks. -- Devananda van der Veen via Foursquare
