Millbrae Pancake House reopens after four months of closure



The Millbrae Pancake House started serving bread rolls on Mother’s Day in 1959.

And – much to the delight of longtime fans – they’ll be there for Mother’s Day 2021.

After a four-month closure, the family-run restaurant reopened this month and again serves breakfast and lunch all day from 7am to 2pm.

After serving approximately 200,000 meals in the first eight months of the pandemic, owners took a break last winter when COVID-era dining restrictions made it difficult to maintain the business.

“Attempting to run this business at reduced capacity has proven to be insufficient. The restaurant is designed to operate at full capacity, ”they said.

But they vowed to be back when the pandemic business climate improves. “The family and staff of Millbrae Pancake House are a resilient group and it is with great certainty that the doors will open again in 2021.”

Now, with indoor dining in San Mateo County allowed at 50% capacity, the Pancake House has resumed normal operations – but it still complements seating with outdoor tables.

“It’s great to be back and serve the community again,” the family said.
