I agree with the others--great place for a pre-farmer's market breakfast! The sandwiches and salads are wonderful--ripe delicious tomatoes, good quality breads and sandwich rolls and the fries have a good crisp to them. We also get take-out here, which is handled efficiently. My only...More

While awaiting work on our car one morning, we walked the area looking for a place to have breakfast. Came to Sequoia Center in Redwood City, and Franklin Street Café, in that Center. The rather traditional bacon, eggs, pan-fried potatoes, English muffin and coffee were...More
