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.

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.

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.
