Copenhagen Bakery & Cafe 1216 Burlingame Ave./Lorton Ave., (650) 342-1357; B-L daily, D W-Sun; $.
This combination Danish bakery and restaurant produces a sweet little six-grain loaf and a great sweet French bread as well as exquisite European-style pastries.
The extensive breakfast menu includes omelettes and pancakes as well as bacon and eggs and is served until 2:30 on weekends. For lunch try a delicious German bologna on sweet French bread with a side of tasty potato salad and, of course, a dessert pastry. Or get the Royal Lunch, a collection of far-from-dainty open-face sandwiches--each is an ice cream scoop of salad atop a tiny piece of pumpernickel. Specialty coffee drinks and ice cream treats are also available.
Order at the counter, then find a seat in the cheery open dining rooms with sidewalk views—or out on the sidewalk itself.
After, spend some time shopping the stores lining this avenue.
