Squeeze In specializes in gourmet omelettes. We have over 60 specialty omelettes on our menu. We've got everything from basic cheese, bacon, sausage and veggie combinations to more exotic options like peanut butter, honey and bananas! In fact, we have over 107 quadrillion different possible omelette combinations. Each omelette comes with a large serving of homefried spudz, and bottomless toast and sauce (either homemade creamy mushroom sauce, tomato pesto or cheese sauce).In addition to omelettes, we serve lots of the usual breakfast stuff like eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, toast, potatoes, awesome French Toast, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and always fresh in-season fruit. We have an extensive lunch menu as well including dozens of creative sandwiches from a classic French Dip to many vegetarian triple-decker classics. We've also got boss burgers, huge burritos, homemade soups and super fresh salads. Oh and did we mention our awesome “flammable” Bloody Marys and huge goblets of champagne and mimosas?!Be sure to join the Squeeze In EggHead Club to earn points and killer hook-ups like a free meal for your birthday and a free bottle of champagne for your anniversary.

We had a fun lunch at the Squeeze In after hearing so much about it. It definitely is a "squeeze". Long, narrow dinning room, but pleasant seating. Lots of family pix on the walls and tables. Menu is quite varied with many choices. Well prepared and tasty. Large portions (maybe too large). Friendly wait persons and fair prices. Good experience!... More

Our group stopped off here after a recommendation from the owner of the place we were heading to in Sacremento! He told us he came here from breakfast, so we trusted in him and we weren't disappointed! We required a table for 6 and a baby, which was a bit of a squeeze but they managed it. The menu is... More

Very small restaurant with an interesting menu that should be on everyone's list of places to eat at. Very laid back yet extremely busy eatery with a unique menu. I've been eating here for years when nearby and have not had a meal that wasn't really good. This weekends experience was awesome as well. Their Eggs Benedict with country potatoes... More

My husband and I stopped in Truckee on our way to Squaw around noon on a Saturday, so I was expecting a long wait. However, we were second ones on the list and were seated within 5 minutes. Service was prompt, our bloody marys came immediately! I loved it, my hubs thought they were too spicy. He had a cheeseburger... More

I can't seem to find a Squeeze In for Redwood City on Trip Advisor, probably because it is still quite new. So, I figured I'd rate it here (hope you don't mind). I went to the RWC Squeeze In with my parents today (I am visiting home from OH). My mom was telling me that the restaurant was opening at... More

I almost gave a four star rating but the service was so good it didn't seem fair. And the only reason I considered the four star was my breakfast sausage seemed like it had been sitting for awhile then reheated. I know. I'm being picky. Great restaurant. Definitely go.

So happy we revisited the Squeeze In - service was over the top and I probably spontaneously said "this is so good!" three times during our meal. Our server was so great - making suggestions for the kids and giving us great tips on our meal. I loved how every server stopped by our table asking if wanted coffee refills,... More

A recent trip to Truckee to meet with old friends brought us to this place which has fun craziness all over the walls and an overwhelmingly lengthy menu. One of our party ordered a waffle plate heaped with fruity, sugary, carby goodness, and a side of chocolate covered bacon with whipped cream and blueberries. We all tasted the bacon and... More

Tiny place, but the food is great! It's a fun stop, it has been on Diner's, Drive-In and Dives, and I can see why. I had the Huevous Montana, and it was delicious. Nice portion size, not massive which I like. VERY crowded on peak days, so watch your timing. Service was great as well!
