Redwood City: Squeeze In to open March 14

Uploaded: Mar 11, 2015
Make your weekend breakfast plans now, because Truckee breakfast favorite is opening its new location at Marsh Manor in Redwood City this Saturday, March 14.

Squeeze In, which opened in downtown Truckee in 1974, does all-things-breakfast: pancakes, French toast, eggs benedict, breakfast burritos, oatmeal, biscuits and gravy, regular eggs and more than 30 omelet combinations. The Redwood City outpost will be the company's fifth restaurant and the first in the Bay Area.

A Menlo Park family who for years has loved getting breakfast there on trips to Tahoe approached the owners of Squeeze In after seeing a space for rent at the Redwood City shopping center.

Robin Soran, manager of Vibe Yoga at Marsh Manor, said she saw the space vacated by Pizza Primo at 3710 Florence St. and immediately thought of Squeeze In. The owners were soon on board, snagged the lease and started construction.

Omelets, the main affair at Squeeze In, range from your typical (Denver, veggie, Spanish, etc.) to your unusual (the "Cathy Who?" comes with bacon, bananas, ham, honey, mushrooms and cream cheese; "The Sarge" with pastrami, salsa, sour cream, cheddar cheese and avocado). Morris said the restaurant's No. 1 best seller is the "Racy Tracy" -- sautéed mushrooms with Monterey jack cheese and bacon, topped with avocado ($13.49) – which was actually featured on the Food Network's Throwdown with Bobby Flay in 2010.

Most omelets range from $11 to $15, depending on what's inside. Any omelet can be made into a scramble or with egg whites.

Squeeze In also serves lunch: sandwiches, salads, soup, fries and the like.

The 2,156 square-foot-space in Marsh Manor has seating for 65 people inside and a patio with seating for 24 outside. The restaurant will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Marsh Manor has become quite a food (and drink) destination, with Squeeze In joining Los Gallos Taqueria, Angel Heart Cakes, Queen Bee Ice Cream and Freewheel Brewing Company.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
