I have the good fortune of living just a few blocks away from Nini's. The food is a 5, the atmosphere is a 5, the service is a 4, but parking is a 1. But their breakfast is worth circling the block a couple of times.

Nini's coffee shop is great for breakfast. It's the place to go to in San Mateo for eggs benedict and fantastic outdoor seating.

You can see on the picture that people were waiting outside (I've been told it is a regular thing there). Luckily, I got a seat without waiting as I was alone. The place is legendary and you can notice that inside looking at the decor. Chicken Breast Marsala was my choice. The taste was superior. Intense Marsala mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, veggies and chicken breast created perfect combination - each bite was a nice culinary adventure. Presentation on a plate was not great but the taste is always the most important. I am 100% satisfied.

A great neighborhood gem for breakfast and lunch. The place has a diner feel with ample seating and a patio in the back. Good portions and well worth the wait as there’s usually a line.

Nini’s is not a big place, but it is mighty and it is good!! Only open for breakfast and lunch, but the hours are plenty to take yourself or a group to have the most spectacular breakfast or lunch anywhere. And on a nice day, their patio is a truly magical spot. Service is friendly, the atmosphere lively and the food is to die for
