“The Perfect Cafe”
Review of Patio Coffee Shop

Patio Coffee Shop
Ranked #6 of 15 Coffee & Tea in San Mateo
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 January 2018 via mobile

We have visited this family owned and operated cafe many times. First off, the food is fresh and very well made. This restaurant is an outstanding example of a classic diner where every item is fresh and made in house. The coffee is fresh ground for every pot of drip and the espresso is excellent. The restaurant and bathroom are absolutely spotless and the owner working the counter is always friendly. If your in the area and looking for a quick well priced meal, check them out, you won't be disappointed.

The Patio Coffee Shop has been a basic eatery in San Mateo for decades and the current owner, Hasan, has himself been carrying on that business for the past 2 decades. This small and traditional coffee shop on 25th Avenue serves breakfast and lunch only (it closes about 2pm) and they keeps things simple, which was just fine for me. I had the Corned Beef Hash & Eggs and a Medium Decaf Coffee and it was all good and reasonably priced at US$16 (inc Taxes).

Great for breakfast, lunch, snack or just a coffee. This is literally an old shop - been around for decades in an older building. Forget your Starbucks style, as this is where the locals would eat breakfast and not "camp out" all day working on their computers. Good prices, decent food, good service.

We stumbled on this place by chance and found it filled with locals. It is a classic coffee shop and then some. All the coffee either drip or espresso is ground fresh and the food is cooked to perfection. Great prices, friendly staff, and a spotless, perfectly maintained, dinning room earned this restaurant a well deserved 5 stars. Family owned, this restaurant was a spectacular find and we will certainly be back very soon.
