The service here is really good. The employees are really friendly and happy. The place was pretty busy, but as a party of 5, our wait wasn't long (about 10 mins). My friend mentioned that she came here as a party of 8 on a previous occasion and had to wait for about a hour. The food was pretty good.... More

Went here yesterday with a local friend for an early lunch before my flight home and was very satisfied. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the service and food alike was great. if given more time in Millbrae, I would have definitely made this my breakfast spot.

I was not impressed with the food and the service was slow. Nothing exceptional about the place and I only ate there once.

I am a big fan and admirer of midcentury design. I stumbled on this place while on stopover for a plane out of SFO which is right next door. I could not believe how cool it is inside. It is right out of a Douglas Sirk movie circa 1955 or something. I am not talking bright colors, kooky angled midcentury... More

We stopped in for a quick breakfast before heading to San Francisco. We loved it! The food was great and the vibe was cool and a bit retro. I would recommend this place if you want a nice solid breakfast. I loved the Swedish pancakes!

Don't let the old building fool you, this place was Great. The staff was Very Friendly, the Food was Good and the portions was very large for one person to finish so like others who also were there we took out a left over box with us. I would recommend this place for everyone visitors and residence.

Came here for lunch with my sister and 2 nephews. I had the eggs florentine with hash browns and my sister had the chicken fried steak with hash browns which came with a side of 2 dinner plate sized fluffy pancakes. Busy place even on a Tuesday mid morning. Our server was attentive and quick with our food. The hash... More
