Silicon Valley’s Walking Dead Relies on Palo Alto Based ZombieRunner

 

Across San Francisco, Silicon Valley and the Bay Area there are loads of coffee spots. Palo Alto in particular is well endowed with brewtiful places like Blue Bottle Coffee and Philz Coffee, but they’re often packed with techies and have queues out the door. We may regret writing this post later on and letting others in on our favorite spot to grab a cup of Joe on the go in Palo Alto, but ZombieRunner is a gem that’s worth sharing. In addition to outdoor and indoor seating, you can also score some sick running gear at ZombieRunner including running shoes, hats and clothing. Located inside Palo Alto’s old Fine Arts Theater, ZombieRunner owners Don Lundell and Gillian Robinson aim to supply you with everything you need to be off and running. ZombieRunner can provide you with the perfect java buzz before your next meeting and simultaneously help you prep for an epic marathon.

With a Coffee Menu This Good You’ll Be Fully Caffeinated and Dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller in No Time – ZombieRunner in Palo Alto, California

 

The drink menu at ZombieRunner is crammed full of unique caffeine IVs like mochas in flavors like coconut, lemon, mint and even orange. ZombieRunner also has Turkish cappuccinos (basically an espresso combined with steamed chai) and our personal favorite… the zombies like licorice which consists of cold brew coffee, milk and sweet or salty licorice. You can order the zombies like licorice drink hot or cold. We usually opt for the warm salty version since it really brings out the aroma of the licorice.
