This place serves wonderful breakfasts. The only problem, at least for me, is the claustrophobic space, but you will not be disappointed by the food. Service can be hit or miss.

I love any place that serves breakfast late, every day. But my experience bringing my friend here for her birthday was only okay. The food was good-- I had the quiche with fresh fruit and it was really tasty. We also ordered lattes though and whatever came was very strange... not really lattes so much as hot liquid coffee parfait?... More

Nice place, nice people, nice food. Go with a group of friends so you can try more of their goodies in one sitting- eggs, rice, beans, fruit, oatmeal, pancakes, toast, potatos- all delicious, finest fresh ingredients. Lovely way to start a California day...

This place frequently has a wait for seating, not necessarily because it's so good but because the capacity is so small. A long counter overlooks the prep & cook area. There are a few tables at the rear, very closely spaced. There are a few tiny sidewalk tables but no umbrellas. 3 egg "scrambles" are a popular breakfast item, with... More

This is a really tiny place with tables close together and hoping for a quick turnover of diners. It had come highly recommended but I went away a little disappointed because they brought me the wrong scramble. Mine was supposed to have Italian sausage in it. As I eat the first portions, I kept expecting to taste sausage; then I... More

Stopped by for breakfast on a Sunday morning with family. We got there just before a rush of customers, so got our table immediately, which was a good thing. It's a very narrow restaurant, with a nice long counter area, and several tables in the back. The setting is nice inside, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. Breakfast... More

Came here since it was highly recommended. Got a scramble, that came with some sourdough bread and a side of their pancakes. I can't say I was overwhelmed by either. My friends and I weren't thrilled with our meals, and felt as though we could've gotten more for our buck.

I've been going to Alana's since they opened on Burlingame Ave years ago. The fact that they have been here for so long says a lot about how good their food and service is. Always friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. Always look for their specials, they're usually quite tasty. You might even score a table outside on the avenue... More

The best and freshest breakfast can be found on the peninsula here in Burlingame California. Ladas has absolutely the best service in town as well as good fresh products and ingredients in their food. Usually a wait if you come on a busy weekend but other was beautiful Street seating and the lovely skinny café inside. The servers as I... More
