"Roadfood means great regional meals along highways, in small towns and in city neighborhoods. It is sleeves-up fare made by cooks, bakers, pitmasters, and sandwich-makers who are America’s culinary folk artists. Roadfood restaurants are almost always casual and affordable. They are diners, small-town cafes, seaside shacks, drive-ins, barbecues, and bake shops. The best of them are colorful places enjoyed by locals (and savvy travelers) for their character as well as their menu.” -Roadfood.com

"Just outside an entrance to the plush gated community of Woodside, The Village Café is a casual restaurant that is anything but casual about what it serves. Here is some very interesting food. The sandwich selection, for example, includes not just a regular BLT, but a smoked salmon BLT. Silky ribbons of tender pink Norwegian salmon are added to the winning combo of bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise (lemon-dill mayo) and served on multi-grain toast. Luxury incarnate!"
"Sophisticated as the food is at The Village Café, its way of doing business is country-casual. Place your order and pay at the counter, where you are given a number to take to a table or to a sunny counter seat by the window to which staff brings the meal."
