Who said food cannot be both healthy and delicious? I did and Flea Street Cafe in Menlo Park proves me dead wrong. Appetizers that tease and delight. Main courses that satisfy and fulfill one’s most demanding expectations. And deserts that should be planned for and...More

Highly rated and it did not disappoint. Wonderful seafood and beef offerings with a flair. Intimate little place that is a must if you're a local or passing through.

Every time we visit Flea Street, I’m impressed with the consistent, high quality, creative food. The staff in the quiet main dining room (unusual in today’s trendy noise!) is helpful, competent. The owner Jesse Cool talked to me about the family photos on the wall...More

It has been more than a year since I dined at the FSC. With them donating 10% of the nights proceeds to the local Senior Hunger Prevention "Meals on Wheels" Program, I thought I'd take a big-eating-massive-appetite Tongan roommate of mine. I was throughly embarrassed....More

I have enjoyed the new menu items. Food was as good as last time. They also extended their bar seating. And these buttermilk biscuits are just addictive, so good hot from the oven

The restaurant is fairly small but I would guess they could accommodate and reasonably large group ~25. Calling the restaurant is the best idea.

40 years ago and decades before it became popular, Jesse Cool led a movement of preparing and serving only fresh, in-season, organic and local...ingredient-driven meals. The flagship of that movement, Late for the Train (1979-2004) and Flea St. Cafe. Today we know sustainability works. When Jesse set out to open her first organic restaurants, critics said it couldn't be done. Yet, along with a dedicated staff and host local farmers, vintners, fishermen and ranchers, Jesse has proven that Sustainable Cuisine is not only viable but even a preferable business model too. To this day, Flea St. Cafe continues to garner recognition and awards for environmental achievement, business sustainability, and community service. Flea St. Cafe's kitchen is led by chef Charlie Parker. With a deep respect for its own unique culinary traditions as well as those of global trends in cuisine and diversity, Flea St Cafe has aged into one of the nations truly iconic sustainable dining locations.
