Your mind is filled with new ideas. Make use of them. -- from our September 2019 fortune cookie

Our self-reinforcing tradition of dinner after our meeting is solidifying. We hope to improve our planning, so fewer people will miss the dinner because they couldn't find the restaurant, and perhaps so that we can choose some requiring reservations. Note that each red heading is a link to the relevant website.

An old standby, 4.9 miles SW of Kepler's. The photo of paying the bill was not staged! But they are closing their doors in September 2019.

A little higher on the price scale.

Near Le Boulanger Cupertino


10630 S. De Anza Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
(408) 996-1443
We had one of our celebrations here, and it was very well received.

Holder's Country Inn

998 S. DeAnza Blvd., San Jose, CA 95129
(408) 244-2798
This would be a good location for our meeting as well. We can likely arrange to be served in a back room, mostly to ourselves. Freeway access is easier than Le Boulanger, and the Cupertino location is just as close to the north bay. This is my preference (Frank Nemec).

Panera Bread

20807 Stevens Creek Boulevard
Good location, fairly comparable to Le Boulanger, but not as much indoor seating.

Boudin Bakery

20682 Stevens Creek Blvd., Cupertino, CA 95014
I don't remember if the seating is conducive to a group like ours.

Sitar Express

21267 Stevens Creek Blvd., #320 Cupertino, CA 95014
The Oaks, Stevens Creek at CA85
The whole center was demolished.
