It's been many years since I have eaten at Alana's (15+) so I was happy to find it is still around and thriving (10am on a Thursday morning and people were waiting for a table). I used to come here for lunch but had breakfast today. I enjoyed the Swedish oatmeal pancakes with lingonberries (other options were bananas or cinnamon... More

I love a good mimosa! I love a place that gives you your own mini bottle of bubbly champagne! My boyfriend also loved his breakfast. The special jam/jelly/preserve they give with nearly everything is so good! Try it!

My mother, who searches out Swedish pancakes, wanted to go here. The place is tiny and elbow-to-elbow when we came, which seemed to bode well. First off, the coffee is superb--the best I've had in a restaurant in a long time. I order the Alaskan smoked salmon scramble, and my mother got the oatmeal Swedish pancakes--a non-traditional combo--but both were... More

How can you elevate the morning meal? Eggs and ham can only be prepared a hand full of ways, and this isn't it. Limited menu, and not much exciting, truly, a lame attempt for the elite to feel they are at one with their rank and file brothers and sisters. Eh! Service was friendly and efficient, but not enough to... More

I come to Burlingame often for business. I stayed near Burlingame Ave and walked to this restaurant two days in a row for breakfast. Simple menu but good food and nice staff. I will definitely be back again. Recommend for couples soli travelers and even a breakfast business meeting. Matt W

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
