Millbrae is such a wonderful place. It's safe, clean and conscious about the environment. The highs school there, Mills High School, is an amazing school filled with great students. They have one of the highest average test scores in the state for high schools. The downtown is filled with great places to shop and eat as well. They have several boba places such as Yi-Fang, T4, Unisouffle and more. They also have great restaurants like Pancake house and Lai Lai restaurant. Furthermore, they have generic shops like Safeway and Walgreeens where you can get everything you need. Finally, they have fast food places and coffee shops that we all love like McDonalds and Starbucks.

Love the city, community and neighborhoods. Nice, small town that’s walkable. There are many restaurants, safe and clean neighborhoods, and close to BART!
Millbrae overall is a really safe neighborhood filled with pleasant residents and restaurants. Millbrae is home to the Bart Station, Caltrain Station, and multiple bus stops. Not to mention, it is only 10 minutes away from SFO! It is a cute area and has reputable elementary, middle, and high schools.
