Very good breakfast option in Burlingame

Just recently had breakfast for the 2nd time at Christie's. This time my daughter was with me, we both like a great breakfast. It was a holiday weekday morning around 8:30am. No issue getting parking, but be prepared with some coin for the meter. There are some meters around that take CC's... read more

During a visit in Burlingame we stopped at Christi'es because it was the only place open (we were there at 6 a.m.). What a SURPRISE! The service was excellent, the portions were large but most important the flavor was amazing. The flavors popped in your mouth. Very simple menu with bold flavors. Our coffee cups were never empty. I love... More

A great place to have breakfast! It's crowded and noisy, but so what? That's part of its charm. Our orders were quickly served and the food was very good and filling. The waitstaff is very kind and cooperative. A well-known regional diner, Christie's is getting some serious attention from many seasoned travelers coming into the Bay Area.

My review is simple. Don't go there. If you go, you will tell others to go. That could lead to a longer wait for me and my family. If you still elect to go you will love the food and the quality. Killer hash browns and perfectly cooked bacon are just two of the reasons why Christie's is so great.... More

Since we stayed in Burlingame the night before we searched out for some good ol' comfort Breakfast food! When we got to Christie's we had to wait, but it was about 15 minutes or so. Once we got inside you can see what all the fuss was about on the reviews that we read. The inside was hustle and bustle... More

Found this place on trip advisor. Needed a hearty morning after meal and this place did not disappoint. Had to wait about 10 minutes for a table, not bad for a Saturday mid morning. Classic diner menu and atmosphere. Great service and food. Other half devoured the chicken fried steak and eggs. I had the mexican scramble with corn tortillas.... More

This place needs no more glowing reviews because it is always busy. What can I add? Great food, great service, reasonable prices. Still delivering the goods after 30 years!

After reading several reviews commemorating the great breakfasts served at Christie’s, we were eager to give it a test run after a recent morning flight into SFO. Stacks had previously suited us just fine, but a shift of scenery to something a little more homespun sounded just fine as well. In the downtown area of Burlingame, Christie’s is certainly easy...

If you don't want to wait forever at Stack's, walk down California for the best breakfast in town. Real good diner food, with a classic menu selection.

Really like this place. Food is good and consistant. Servers are friendly and efficient. Place is definitely a locals hang, so you know it is good. I like to sit at the counter.
