The beloved local Millbrae Pancake House (1301 El Camino Real) has decided to shut down temporarily starting today (Monday, November 30) until further notice and hopes to open again in 2021.

The restaurant has been open every day (other thank Christmas Day) since 1959.

Millbrae Pancake House will temporarily suspend all business operations after close of business Sunday, November 29, 2020.

Millbrae Pancake House has operated every day without interruption since opening its doors on Mother’s Day 1959 (with the exception of closing for Christmas Day each year).

The restaurant has remained open throughout all of 2020, despite the challenges faced by the industry. The Pancake House has served nearly 200,000 meals year to date.

Millbrae Pancake House is proud of its health and safety protocols, which has resulted in zero incidents of COVID-19 at its facility.

The restaurant is designed to operate at full capacity. Attempting to operate this business at a reduced capacity has proven to be inadequate.

Closing this landmark business for any period of time will certainly cause much heartache and sadness in the community. However, the most significant impact will certainly be the 44 employees of Millbrae Pancake House who face layoffs at this time. The most senior member of the staff has been employed at the restaurant for over 53 years.

The Millbrae Pancake House family and staff are a resilient bunch and it is with great certainty that the doors will once again open in 2021.
