Palo Alto's ZombieRunner to open cafe in Mountain View

Uploaded: Jul 18, 2019
After more than a decade of running a coffee cart from the back of a running store on Palo Alto's California Avenue, the owners of ZombieRunner are opening a brick-and-mortar cafe.

They plan to open ZombieRunner Coffee (no running shoes or blister kits at this one) at 1980 W. El Camino Real in Mountain View later this summer, co-owner Don Lundell confirmed.

"The growth of our coffee business said to us: It's time for coffee location #2," he said. Customers would frequently ask them to open in Mountain View, he added.

The Mountain View cafe's menu will be based on what's available in Palo Alto: espresso, drip coffee, cold brew, chai and other drinks of their own creation like the "Zombies never sleep" (cold brew, espresso and milk) and "Zombie Fizz"(iced sparkling cold brew, lemon and agave).

Lundell and co-owner Gillian Robinson, both ultrarunners, first started ZombieRunner online and then opened their store in 2008.

Stay tuned on an opening date for the Mountain View cafe.
