Coffee Art in a Running Store
Arguably the best coffee in Palo Alto can be found in the most unusual of places, a running store. ZombieRunner set up shop inside the old Fine Arts Theater in 2008 and has fostered a community of trail and long-distance running enthusiasts. With its comfortable space and inventory of running necessities (like shoes) and accessories (like reflectors), it's a specialty destination for runners. It can now add coffee enthusiasts to its clientele, as the shop also functions as a café. Barista (and co-owner) Don carefully crafts each cup with creative coffee art designs. Look down into your foam to see a bear, fish, or pig—or a whimsical ghost, Pac-Man, or musical note. Then get running.
