best eggs in Palo Alto?

Anyone have a suggestion for the best eggs (omlet or fluffy scrambled) in Palo Alto? I've had the omelet at Joanie's and liked it, but looking for someplace new/better.

I'm hoping for some place on University Ave, but will take all suggestions.

  1. Try McArthur Park (If it's still open:^) I haven't been in Palo Alto for a few years, but their food and menu were the best.

      Macarthur park has reportedly gone through an entire kitchen change; likely for the better.

    2. Here are three suggestions.

      Next door to Joanie's is Cafe Brioche. The omelettes are French-inspired.

      In downtown Palo Alto, Il Fornaio, in the Garden court Hotel on Cowper has a nice variety. Also, the weekend brunch menu is nice.

      The Palo Alto Creamery (AKA Peninsula Fountain & Grill) at Hamilton and Emerson, serves eggs and omelettes.
