Millbrae Pancake House
The Millbrae Pancake House has been owned and operated by the same family since we opened our doors on Mother's Day way back in 1959. We have watched the world around us change dramatically over the last fifty years, but at the Millbrae Pancake House, our time honored traditions haven't changed at all.
My parents used to take me here when I was little as a special Sunday morning treat! Now I take my son and he LOVES it as much as I always did! The food is wonderful and never disappoints. Service is great and they are always friendly. The photo above is my little guy at our last visit there!
I'm not just saying that! The pancakes are fluffy without being too runny and are always consistent. Served with a huge mound of whipped butter and a nice selection of syrups (or honey if you prefer). I'm not as big of fan of the other dishes, except for maybe the chili omlette-but certainly if you, get the pancakes and you will not be dissapointed
A typical American breakfast place to visit, with decor changes according to each holiday, which create a very celebrative mood. Host and hostess are not teen or 20 year old hotties but they are pleasant, efficient and nice to their customers. Portions are usually large (at least for me) so splitting with a friend is highly recommended.
I have to admit this is probably the best pancake house I have been to and probably Millbrae's best kept secret. I eat here at least once a week and highly recommend it. The only two things that drive me crazy are the lack of English speaking employees and parking is really tough.
Sorry to say after reading all the great reviews I was disappointed. The 'hostess' barely looked at or spoke to us as she lead us to our cramped table, dumped our menus and left. Our waitress was much nicer and our food was served in a flash - almost as fast as McDonalds, and not much better. We both had 'crepes' but they were not really french crepes as described on the menu. I had apple (undercooked and dry) and my daughter had strawberry (decent berries inside the 'crepe' but literally nothing else. Both served with a mountain of whipped cream on the side. The place is large, busy and looks run down. We split a side of hash browns that were just OK. Given this place has such good reviews, I might try again with a different order. Based on this experience, however, I would rather go to Dennys.
