As with any city, the local shops and restaurants often provide the opportunity to see the city as the locals do, and Café Roma is no different. While not exclusive to Millbrae (there are two locations to the north, in San Francisco), this location provides an opportunity to visit this local establishment while not needing to combat the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. If visiting at lunchtime, patrons can pick up a coffee along with a personal pizza or pasta, or any number of pastries endemic to a coffee shop.

Chock full of artifacts from the city’s past, this museum houses photos, furniture and documents. Even the house in which the museum resides is a historical artifact, built in 1895 and restored for use as a museum. The museum is only open on Saturday from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, so you’ll need to plan accordingly. It is located just across from the Millbrae Library.

This historical oasis is all about the railway history of Millbrae, the San Francisco Peninsula and the Western United States in general. Located down the street from the history museum at the train tracks, this glimpse into the locomotive past of the region is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. However, like the history museum, the train museum is only open on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, so visitors will need to plan accordingly.

Rain or shine, fruits and veggies are always available at the Millbrae Farmers Market. Open each Saturday regardless of weather, this market is a great opportunity to meet locals and fulfill a craving for fresh produce. Operated by the Millbrae Chamber of Commerce and open from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, the market is a fantastic place to obtain not only produce but also locally produced pastries, baked goods and seasonal specialties. On some Saturdays, shoppers can enjoy local music from Bay Area musicians as they shop at the market.
This annual celebration Through Labor Day Weekend is all about the best of Northern California, from wine to music to classic cars. Each year, this festival draws visitors from across the Bay Area and beyond, and this small bayside city is flooded with people from all over Northern California. Now in its 46th year of celebration, this artsy, music-filled, food and drink fest is something any visitor would want to add to their itinerary.

Who doesn’t love a good breakfast meal, morning, noon or night? Since 1959, this family-owned establishment has crafted homemade waffles and pancakes for the discerning Millbrae foodie. Breakfast foods not your thing? No problem. The Millbrae Pancake House also serves burgers, sandwiches and dinners for diners of all tastes. This cozy little restaurant in the heart of Millbrae is a fantastic spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try calling ahead for reservations if you plan on dining weekend mornings, as there is often limited space.
