I don't know who Martha is, but Martha's Famous Oatmeal Pancakes are fantastic. Next time I'm in the Bay Area a stop at Alana's for more pancakes is definitely necessary. My eating companions also loved their meals. The house the restaurant is set in is...More

Better than queueing at Starbucks or any of the standard breakfast style thingies in the US. A small little house with a garden makes a nice atmosphere. Maybe in summer it is even nicer utilizing outside space.

Lovely location near RWC library and downtown. Good selection of brunch, lunch and salad options. Good sebi venture and some parking in the back. Laid back feel and dining in the garden on a nice day isn't great.
