Love the aroma that seeps from the pancakes. It's so good, we had it as breakfast 3 times in our 2 weeks vacation in California. Sausages are ok although my wife didn't particularly like it. Servers are friendly although they didn't really go out of the way. Guess it's due to the packed crowd (it's crowded each time we were... More

The Millbrae Pancake House looks like it probably did when it opened in the 50's. And the pancakes taste absolutely delicious. I'm sure that's why it's still around. The service is great and the wait staff is very friendly. We would definitely go back the next time we're in the area.

I had dinner here as it happened to be close to my hotel. It's very nice traditional diner. Food was good, but my stake was much more well done than medium as I asked for, but that was good because of the quality of the meat. Chili was great. I felt like it took a bit long for a waitress... More

I've been coming to this place for many many years. I love the homey feeling when you come in place still looks just about the same as it did when then opened 😄 I order the chocolate chip pancakes. The batter is chocolate with chocolate chips on top and lots of whipped cream. Super yummy. You can get full order... More

I had visited this place 20 years ago and remembered that I liked it, so I took my mom here for breakfast when she was in town. We arrived fairly early in the morning and the place was 90% empty. Service was very prompt and friendly and prices were okay, but the food was really bland. Toast was okay but... More

I used to go once a week for years and my dad managed the golf course up the hill. this place is so good, great food, awesome service and the coffee make the meal. It will get busy with locals. take the time to go.

We stayed at the Best Western across the road and my wife wanted an authentic American breakfast experience so we decided to give Millbrae Pancake House a try. We arrived around 8.30am on a weekday morning and it was BUSY! We did get a table right away. Service was prompt and okay but not overly friendly. My wife ordered an... More
