Millbrae Pamcake House is one of the best breakfast spots in the South San Francisco area! They might look busy when you drive by, but just go inside and grab a number. They seat pretty quickly despite how popular they are. Food is consistently good! Try the Swedish Pancakes! Yum!

Fun breakfast diner for kids (noisy). Great selection outside of pancakes (I am not a pancake guy). Think of a touristy IHOP. American portions so careful on the ordering. Lines are always crazy here.

Service is quick and servers are friendly. Make sure II come early on the weekends or you may have I wait.

I usually go with Special #1. Your choice of 2 eggs, bacon or sausage, and either pancakes or biscuits with gravy.

Don't even think about not getting pancakes at a pancake house!

There is no way around this...you're going to have to wait for a table. But trust me, it's worth it. No frills, delicious pancakes and other breakfast items. They have an extensive list of variations on pancakes and waffles and egg scrambles. Variety is not a problem here. Get the pancakes -- you won't be sorry!

Yes! get the pancakes here. How great there's the option of regular flap jacks, chocolate chips, German style, and crepe styles. Meals are hearty here but healthier options are available, for example fresh fruits. This is a Millbrae institution and how great to still a bit of nostalgia here: the interior decor, the ordering check, the turn stile ordering wheel, and the cashier area.

Peak times always mean a wait so avoid peak times.

If you don't get pancakes you're crazy. They're delicious! Make sure you get a cup of hot chocolate and say YES when they ask if you'd like whipped cream. And if Mary serves you tell her I say hi!

This is a must visit breakfast spot in the Peninsula. It is usually pretty busy all day. The servers are nice and the service is fairly quick. They have a nice selection of pancakes, waffles, omelets, and sandwiches here. I recently enjoyed their Chicken & Waffles and a side of the biscuits and gravy. The food here is so tasty you can't go wrong with whatever dish you choose. Also, the portions are pretty decent and can fill you up quick.

A lot of the things I did in this area south of SF was work related. And this was no exception. After work a number of us hand gone down the street to eat at this local institution.

I like this place, I used to go here with co workers first thing in the AM. I used to come here all the time - so much that I've pretty much tried all the breakfast meals there. I like it. I like breakfast. I like this place. I cant seem to go wrong with any of their breakfast plates. And be sure to get enough butter from their giant tubs for your giant mounds of pancakes. Its key.. even though you might think that you have enough... well you dont... so get more butter.
Oh Yeah!
;D

Really good food, but too much noise for a quite breakfast.
