Was greeted by a nice waiter who found us a table in a packed restaurant. Had the chef's omelette with Orange Juice and a coffee. Coffee was your run of a mill diner coffee, nothing special, and perhaps not strong enough. OJ was fresh and invigorating. The omelette was fantastic, delicious taste, served with a side of toast.

Starting from 6a till 3 or so.. you can get a basic American breakfast of very good quality from the crusty but personable staff. Fully of locals and high school students early in the week day the crowd AND wait changes throughout the day.

My friends and I met here for a casual brunch, and managed to arrive early enough so we didn't have to wait (though we appreciated the eggs and bacon face on the tree outside). Food was solid, and we would definitely return.

I eat breakfast regularly alone, but nat at the counter of Christie's, there will always be someone to talk to, if not the spirited waitresses!!!

Grilled cheese sandwich was great, salad was okay but breakfast is the best. Lots of choices to choose from and all are good. Locals know and frequent the place and service staff is friendly and efficient. Prices are average and on street parking is convenient

First time visitor to the Burlingame area. Selected Christie's based on previous TA reviews. Found the breakfast food and dining experience at best "average." Varied breakfast menu and priced accordingly. Variety of seating options available. Ordered chefs special omelet with home fries, decaf coffee and SD toast. Home fries were greasy and found the coffee bitter. No sign of wait... More
