    Coffee is good. Pasta is good. A little expensive with small portion. I had a coffee and pasta. Still hungry afterward.

    We enjoy the relaxing environment, friendly service and Chef Henry Eng's creation. His bubble and squeak, our favorite, onion soup is great (wish it was more!), tripe is unforgettable. We come every weekend😎

    I have mixed feelings about this place. On the plus side, it's a nice space, they have free (fast) wifi and the staff are great and friendly. On the downside, they seem to still be finding their way as a restaurant (the space also functions as a food startup incubator). Some examples of that: - closed on Mondays (Monday's??) - no breakfast on Tuesdays - why? - they close at 4, so no dinner hours - inconsistent hours in general - hard to plan to go there when you have to break out your pivot table to determine if they are open and what they are actually serving that day - no decaf coffee - pricey food for small portions - kitchen is inflexible in meeting customer requests I have been there a number of times for breakfast (around 10). I cannot eat egg yolks (intolerant) so I ask for egg whites. Every breakfast place in the Bay Area that I have been to accommodates requests like this. In fact, I have never really been anywhere in the US where they don't. Usually they charge extra for this but I'm ok with that. Each and every time I order this breakfast this way, I initially get "we don't do that." And then I ask them to ask the kitchen and they have reluctantly done it. Every time it's this back and forth. For some reason they don't want to do it. Figure it out, guys. Figure out how to do what *literally* everyone else does. Your bacon and eggs and potatoes comes in at a precious $17. I deserve to have my eggs the way I want them. Note to management: if you aren't aware of this, please take action now that you are. It's exasperating to have to argue for my food. Rant over.

    Every Thursday night they have an amazing jazz trio playing both jazz classics and jazz covers of pop hits like Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit! Great dinner items and craft foods from local businesses making great products. (I love the granola company there!)

    Awesome space in a well hidden part of Burlingame, just off of the 101. The coffee is great. The service is friendly and not rushed. In the back is a large co-op kitchen that is used by local businesses to prepare food. Really wonderful sense of community. They sell bakery from the kitchen so it's different almost everyday. But they do consistently have excellent bread, so you can order sliced bread with your coffee. It's awesome. Update: definitely have brunch/lunch here. Henry's #5 Kitchen does the best comfort dishes. We had the salmon scrambled eggs and pork chops and they were fantastic.
