Famous Address: 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California

From searching for a lunch place to Apple Computer. My interesting day trip today. 

The story I planned to write today was to introduce readers to a south bay location of a popular San Francisco restaurant - in Cupertino - inside our local Whole Foods Market.  It is the popular vegan restaurant, Cafe Gratitude. 

On My Way To Lunch

This restaurant has been on my list of things to do for awhile. It is unfortunate to receive the information that Cafe Gratitude in the south bay, along with other locations in the Bay Area, have been closed. 

After a quick search, I found several articles of the recent closure.  Please plan ahead and call to see if your location has closed yet. I will not comment as to what happened because I do not know details.  Perhaps the Undercover Waitress will dig a little deeper into the why of the closure and what happened as this is a favorite place for many to eat.

I will recommend, like I been saying all of this time, use your iPhone to call or email a local person, like me, to verify if establishments still exist, hours, and addresses.  Especially in Silicon Valley, as there is an ever-changing business transition almost overnight which seems to happen often.  It saves time as you plan your day itineraries.  Or, even let me assist with the planning.

Tribute to Famous Silicon Valley Address 

Yes, I am able to change plans in the moment!  I decided December 31 is a great day to stop by the famous "1 Infinite Loop" and pay tribute the company everyone knows very well. It is the home of iPhones, iPads, iMAC Computers, etc. and the story of two entrepreneurs named Steve.  

The next question I receive is, where is Cupertino, CA?  People see this location marked on their Apple equipment and don't recognize this Bay Area city.  I didn't measure the mileage, the main Apple Campus is quite large as you drive around the whole loop.  

You will find several smaller Apple campuses throughout Cupertino. This area is quite active during the work week and a rare sight without people wandering about.  It will be interesting to see the new campus they have been planning.

My favorite resource telling the Apple Story is Apple Confidential, by Owen W. Linzmayer.  People still ask me if they may have my copy, with a 1999 copyright. (Of course, it is not for sale... yet)

  • Remember, research and make plans of what you want to do. 
  • Be flexible, if the place or restaurant you want to see is closed, there may be something around the corner to see.  
  • And, call a local person to verify information first.   
Apple Company Store, 1 Infinite Loop

Insider Information:  Visit the Apple Company store which is open Monday - Friday, during business hours, it is fun to browse. 

Yes, I have been by the Garage where Apple Computer was started. Does anyone want me to go by and get a picture of it?  Hint: It is somewhere in Los Altos, CA. 

Its never to late to start new things ~ do it now.
