Just as in Bristol, there isn't enough space for all the important customers, even with echelon parking.
Here is where the Palo Alto council have realised the problem, and corrected by adding free two hour parking in open parking lots. Even there, someone has tried to sneak a bicycle in.
The side streets also offer unrestricted parking, making it easy to get from your SUV to your restaurant.
As with the main road, "University", there is no space in a city with such narrow roads to add any bicycle lanes.
Yet what do we see? Somone has snuck in a bicycle and chained it -probably illegally- to a bus stop. They should be reported to the police!
