Breakfast and late night supper at Freemont

FourSeasons Jun 9, 2011 02:19 AM

I have typed "Breakfast at Freemont" on the search function which yielded no result. And my earlier post "Singapore Family Seeking Help..." http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/789009 receive very helpful comments on every option except the the breakfast and late night supper choices at Freemont. Perhaps a very trivial and peculiar question. But we expect to experience jet lag in the first few days after arrival from a 20 hours flight from Singapore since there is a time difference of 15 hours. My past experience indicated we will wake up at 2-5am (5-8pm Singapore time) and the first few breakfast tend to be heavy. We will be staying at Hyatt Regency Freemont so I am looking for decent breakfast places near that area. Any luck?

      Oops, you are right, spelling error. But then I retyped "Breakfast at Fremont" and the only relevant breakfast place appear is Fremont Diner at Sonoma. Nothing in Fremont too :-(

      You might consider a Hong Kong style cafe that opens early and closes late, such as Venus Cafe or Cousin Cafe in nearby Newark. I think Venus Cafe has more extended hours. I also don't know what the composition of the late night clientele might be.

        Just checked. Venus Bakery Cafe looks good, it closes at 1am while Cousin Cafe closes at 11pm on weekdays. Thanks. Do you know far is the drive from Hyatt Regency Fremont to Venus Cafe Newark?

        The Original Pancake House for breakfast on Fremont Blvd or Country House on Mowry Ave; Mil's Diner in nearby Milpitas...http://www.milsdiner.com/index.html

        What time is "late night supper"? Looks like your hotel is between Fremont & Milpitas...best options are Indian & Asian. Asia Pearl in Fremont is open until 10:00 p.m. There is also assortment of decent fast food such as Chipotle Grill (Mexican), In N Out Burger & Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Some may close by 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. Check before you go.


        Lastly, is your stay in Fremont related to work? If so, I'd ask colleagues there for recs.

          Thanks for the breakfast recommendation.
          "Late night supper" probably means 11pm to 1am, depending if the flight is delayed. We expect to check in around 10-11pm (which is actually 1-3pm Singapore time). We will try to control the urge but most likely the tummy will remind us it is lunch hour.
          Not work related, spending one day at Fremont to visit old friends who have migrated to U.S. The next day as a springboard to visit the Monterey region.

            There is a Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara Ca and a Hyatt Place in Fremont Ca. Which are you staying at? If I had an address I could google the distance.

                  Mostly freeway miles, so it shouldn't take much more than 10 minutes late at night.

                    @wolfe @Chandavki: thanks for the info. That is very helpful.

          Venus Tam's Cafe in Newark should open at least till 1 am, and is probably the more decent HK style western/HK cafe in the area with a few Cantonese options that is a good quick fix.

          As a last resort there are some places, probably not terribly tasty but there if you need it, around the Ulferts Center in Milpitas no more than 20 mins freeway driving south of Fremont. China Palace and House Of Noodles (noodle dishes and noodle soups) opens till 3 am and CP offers a variety of Chinese food (run by Chinese from the mainland), and there's ABC in the same complex...but if you can squeeze the meal in earlier, Venus is superior.

          Pho Saigon Noodle House at 1455 Landess Ave in Milpitas opens till 2 am may be a bit further away.

            Thanks for the info but will stick to Venus since it is much closes to the hotel. I hope we just need this late night option just for 1 evening; if not, that will mean serious case of jet lag.

            La Piñata is open until 2 on Fridays and Saturdays.

              La Pinata is a decent option for a late-night meal (and a drink, if you so desire) in an area with little that stays open. If you're leaning simple, Nation's in Fremont is open until 1 am on Friday and Saturday, with fast-food burgers (made to order) and pie.

              These options are about equivalent in driving time as Venus in Newark is from OP's hotel, late at night.

              I can't get Nation's Giant Hamburgers in Fremont to link, but here's the restaurant page for it: http://www.chow.com/restaurants/15893...
