The city of Burlingame, is becoming one of the Bay Area’s best places to live. Although Burlingame, California is known for its expensive lifestyle, these top 10 places provide incredible food with affordable prices.
Nestled on Broadway Avenue is a delicious sandwich shop called Bonne Sante. This small venue is straight and to the point about their food: it’s all about the sandwiches. The price point is surprisingly low since the sandwiches are larger than the average person’s head. Just like any sandwich shop, there is the option of customizing and building sandwiches. However, most steer clear of that and order off the preset menu. Bonne Sante is most known for their sandwiches loaded up with giant and mouthwatering hamburgers. Their best selling sandwich, The Wrangler, is enough for two to share and includes two hamburger patties, with onions rings, lettuce, tomato and barbecue sauce. It’s a challenge to finish the sandwiches because portion sizing is amazing so definitely bring friends.
On most lazy Sundays, people tend to crave something sweet to polish off a fantastic meal. Preston’s on Broadway is the favorite for most locals because the ice cream and candy are unbelievable quality for low prices. The coffee ice cream is smooth and the perfect touch of sweet. Preston’s is also known for their candy. They proudly invite people to watch how the candy is made. This dessert place produces fudge that melts in the mouth and creates joy all around. Some also enjoy the frozen fudge-covered bananas, called the Banana Royale, to indulge in as an interesting treat. Preston’s family-owned style and presence offers a comfortable and familial atmosphere.
Burlingame is a small enough town that folks are always running into people they know. At Alana’s Café, it’s almost guaranteed that the owners know customer names and their usual orders. The open kitchen allows customers to see how the food is being prepared and the extensive menu contains inexpensive items. An option on the menu, called Martha’s Famous Swedish Oatmeal Pancakes, is a local favorite. Although the menu is packed with satisfying treats, Alana’s is known for their quiches that change daily. This is the perfect place that represents the Burlingame easy-going lifestyle.
