Tuba replaces Tuts Bakery & Cafe in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Jan 14, 2019
A little over a year after opening at 535 Bryant St. in downtown Palo Alto, Tuts Bakery & Cafe has closed and a Turkish restaurant has taken its place.

Serkan Karabacak said that he took over Tuts from the previous owners and opened Tuba Palo Alto in December. Karabacak said he also owns a Tuba in San Francisco as well as Cafe Brioche and Pastis in Palo Alto. He said he bought Cafe Brioche in November 2017 and Pastis in September.

Tuba serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu includes gyro wraps, hot mezes, soups, salads and entrees. "Signature entrees" include a skewered spicy ground beef and lamb kebab and lamb chops that are marinated for three days, then flame broiled.

Tuba's breakfast menu is similar to its predecessor's. There's a traditional Turkish breakfast platter with feta cheese, olives, salami, salad, egg, jam and sigara boregi (fried feta-stuffed rolls); menemen, or eggs baked in a tomato sauce; tartines; and pastries, among other dishes.

Tuba is open daily from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., according to Yelp.
