coffee and/or breakfast near San Mateo / Foster City

Anyone have a rec for a decent place for a weekday breakfast (open by 9, so dim sum won't work) and/or coffee? If it's all chain coffee near San Mateo/Foster City, which chain(s) do you recommend most for a visiting Chowhound?

Thanks for any ideas.

      Thanks! We decided have breakfast ended up at an IHOP which was a block from our hotel in Foster City, which was my first visit to an IHOP in close to 30 years. I've got to admit the bite of my friend's sweet cream cheese crepe with raspberry topping was quite tasty. :)

    2. For future reference, I very much like the breakfast and press coffee at the Sofitel in Redwood Shores. For general coffee action in San Mateo downtown, I like 3B's and Kaffeehaus. Both are long on atmosphere and short on actual coffee quality.
