Where did Spot Pizza Go?

Original post made by Pat Markevitch, Downtown North, on Aug 24, 2008

What happened to Spot Pizza in Town and Country? It was there a few weeks ago and is now gone? Did it go out of business or just relocate?

They moved to 115 Hamilton (Hamilton and Alma)

Web Link

Not sure if they are up and running there yet.

My sympathies to all the pizza-loving Paly students...

I was in Los Altos the other day and I walked by the back door of Spot Pizza on Main Street so I assume it is still in business

I called the Palo Alto number (324-3131) and the message says the 115 Hamilton location will open Sat Aug 30.

The are definitely still in business, and doing well it would seem.

Just had a Los Altos Spot pizza tonight, as a matter of fact -- the "Blind Spot" (chicken, bacon, green onions, cheddar). Delicious!

Another unfortunate result of the "upscaling" of Town and Country - must be a huge baby boom in PA for all those maternity, little kid stores to be there!

Expect real problems tomorrow when Paly reopens and there is no cheap fast food for Paly students.

This is not a joke. The school lunch facilities cannot cope with all the students wanting lunch and if the students are unable to get lunch at school or at T & C, there will be problems. This isn't Gunn where the school knows that there is no alternative for students and is set up for the lunchtime onslaught. Paly couldn't cope.

Watch this space.

The loss of Spot is painful. But there are other good fast-food options at T&C--Village Cheese Shop, Sushi House, Kirk's, etc.

There may be other fast food places but they are not as cheap. Village Cheese shop is ever so expensive compared to Spots apart from the bread and ranch dressing dip (if they still do that with the new owners) and Kirk's is expensive and slow. Sushi is not as popular as pizza for teenagers.

There will be problems today at lunch time.

Yeah, we were wondering the same thing.
Does ANYONE know when the new place across from Peet's is going to be open? The opening keeps getting delayed - for over a year now!
