Sunnyvale, California - a stop along the Caltrain rail route.
Click here for photos from Sunnyvale, California
Sunnyvale is typical of many of the stops along the Caltrain rail route.
Downtown or other centers of activity are usually just a few steps away
from the station. Right within walking distance there is an abundance of
interesting restaurants. Even the station, as small as it is, has a
coffee shop / snack bar!
The station appears to be unstaffed except during the peak hours in
the morning. Only a few of the Caltrain stations are staffed, and even at
that, they are only staffed during the height of the commute time. When
a Caltrain Ticket Office is not open, you just board the train and purchase
your ticket from the Conductor. If you board the train without a ticket at
a station that is staffed, the penalty is around $1.
Some of the pictures below show the inside and outside of the restaurant:
"Great VegiLand Vegetarian Restaurant." We did not walk to the restaurant
from the train station. I have been told it is only about a ten minute walk
from a Caltrain Station, but I did not verify this myself. The address of
the "Great VegiLand Vegetarian Restaurant" is 562 South Murphy Avenue,
Sunnyvale, CA 94086, phone 408-735-8040. It is open 7 days a week, Monday
through Friday 11 AM to 3 PM and 5 PM to 9:30 PM and on weekends from
11:30 AM to 9:30 PM. I'm not a vegetarian, but I like vegetarian dishes
if they are well prepared. This restaurant has the best vegetarian
Chinese food of any restaurant that I have tried! I always try to eat here
at least once when I am in the area.
