Café Saluté, located on the first floor near, is a family-run
business operated by Maurizio and Melissa Carrubba. They will strive
to exceed your expectations.
Maurizio, who was born in Sicily, landed in California by way of
Calgary. His parents and brother, Giuseppe, opened Caffe Riace in
mid-town Palo Alto during the summer of 1996 as a little caffe where
friends could meet, grab a paper and a latte and sit on the beautiful
piazza amongst the fountains, statues and olive trees. It has now
grown to be Palo Alto's little piece of Italy, serving traditional
Sicilian dishes the traditional family style way.
Caffe Ciao opened on the Stanford University campus in January of
2004 in the Terman Engineering building. The family and caffes are
committed to buying fresh, organic meats and produce so that they may
offer you the best every season. All their soups are homemade.
Melissa says they're honored to be a part of the Stanford family in
the Stanford Cancer Center. Please stop by and introduce yourself.
They look forward to meeting you!
