Such neat neighborhood type of breakfast place. Staff are very friendly. Food was really good. Portion was huge. Menu has a good selection of waffle, pancake, omelette. Very generous with their strawberries on the waffle in my opinion. Price is very reasonable for such large portion. I love the buttermilk waffle, texture is just right. I also ordered 2 eggs...

This happens to be very close to the SF airport, and I picked up a friend who had a long layover for brunch. I was surprised that the place was packed, but on a weekday, we were seated right away. The portions for the price were very large. Everything from the potatoes to the pancakes were delicious. I have never... More

Had breakfast here for the first time on Saturday. Though we had to wait 25 minutes for a table - it is worth the wait! The Chocolate Chip pancakes are OUT OF THIS WORLD GOOD!!!! The service is good, the food is good and the place was full. I plan to come back for lunch and dinner too. Also, the... More

ワッフルはいわゆるディープポケットタイプでなく浅く細かい網目。ソフト過ぎることはないが、味の個性も特にない。ストロベリーとクリーム添えを注文したが、フレッシュストロベリーは期待通りだがクリームはフレッシュにホイップした訳ではなくスプレータイプではないか?このクリームが結構甘過ぎ。メニューに「Made from scratch, the same way we've been making them since 1959.」とあり期待したがそこまでではないかな。

This place is super busy on Sunday mornings, but we were willing to wait the 20 - 25 minutes. I can't say enough about how delicious the pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes were. Sure wish I could enjoy the food from Millbrae Pancake House!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you like pancakes and other breakfast foods this is a good place to visit. But beware, it can get busy and the wait like is always out the door.

As a long time restaurant of Millbrae, I have gone to the Millbrae Pancake House over the years....thinking back to years past, I expected it to be the same....we were disappointed and wonder what the lure of this restaurant is since it is crowded morning, noon and night. We had the breakfast special (short stack, two eggs and sausage)which was... More

We did not know what to expect for dinner at a breakfast/pancake house. It's a landmark in the Bay Area but had only eaten breakfast here years ago. Wow, what a nice surprise. Menu is basic choices of "comfort foods" but husband enjoyed a tasy cheeseburger. My side salad was wilted old iceberg lettuce so I asked for a "fresh"... More
