This time we’re ready to take on the Bay Area’s rich and abundant cafe culture. First, we visit Menlo Park where savory Italian cuisine and some of the best desserts around are found at Cafe Borrone. Next, we head to San Francisco to a place named after a Beatles tune and where Mom works in the kitchen alongside her sons at The Yellow Submarine. Lastly, still in San Francisco, we visit a small neighborhood establishment that serves up Mediterranean fare all day long at Morning Due Cafe.
