Menlo Park: Cafe Zoe to stay on Menalto Avenue

Kathleen Daly plans a second location in Redwood City

Kathleen Daly, owner of the popular Cafe Zoe at 1929 Menalto Ave. in the Willows area of Menlo Park, said she has signed a long-term lease with the new owner of the building.

There had been doubt about the future of the cafe due to the change in landlord.

In an email, Ms. Daly said that ownership of the building was transferred to the new owner on June 9. Cafe Zoe will celebrate its sixth anniversary on June 19, she said.

In addition, she said, she and her daughter Zoe, who is home from college for the summer, plan to open a second location in downtown Redwood City in the next week or so.

Ms. Daly had looked for another location in case the Menalto Avenue cafe had to close, and it turned into a second location.

I'm really glad to hear that Zoe's will be able to stay. What about the other businesses in that location? Will they be staying? This seems like a rather tilted article.
