This shop has been here for many years and is a Burlingame traditional standard. Love meeting my friends for good conversation, donuts (the apple fritter is awesome) & coffee. Great place for getting together. Not fancy-fun.

I've been eating donuts here for the last 20 years and I love this place. The Apple Fritters here are second to none and are the standard that all others are compared against. All the other donuts are fantastic as well, but my wife and I always stop here for a Fritter and a coffee when we deserve a treat.

Found this gem on the inter-webs. What a delight. Immediately went there earl in the morning after getting my rental car. Wonderful diner-style counter seating that faces the grill. I had waffles, pancakes, bacon, and turkey bacon during two separate breakfast visits. I failed to try a donut, but I will next time! Trust what everyone has said and GO... More

Wow. this place is a must if you find yourself in south San Francisco. A really cool breakfast restaurant. Not to big with a classic decor from the 50s and 60s. We found it on Yelp

Very friendly wait staff, everyone thanked us for coming. Good breakfast, priced well. Had to wait a little bit but it's a small place. Make sure you sign in on the clipboard hanging by the door.

It seems like this little shop is always open! It also seems like they make donuts all day and they are made on the premises. So most of the time the donuts are of the freshest quality. The shop is located right on the railroad tracks and across the street from the cute Burlingame Train Station and also across from... More

Scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, potatoes and toast with coffee in the old style white heavy "diner" mugs for around $10. Food was well prepared and served quickly which is for me is a very important breakfast requirement. The menu has enough choices to put someone with ADHD into a tizzy but if you can't find something you want it... More

Great place for fresh donuts. I always stop by when I am in the area. Krispy Creme is great, but Royal Donuts can compete them on many levels. Give it a try.
