While the Media Capital of the World is mainly known for Warner Bros. Studio, The Walt Disney Studios, and various TV and production sets, it is in fact a foodie’s paradise as well. If you’re looking for where to eat in Burbank, here are five best restaurants in Burbank, California you can’t miss!
1. Castaway Restaurant & Events

Phone Number: (818) 848-6691
Hours: Monday & Tuesday from 4:00PM to 9:00PM; Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday from 11:00AM to 9:00PM; Friday & Saturday from 11:00AM to 10:00PM
Castaway is a stunning hilltop restaurant overlooking the San Fernando Valleys. They specialize in seasonally-inspired cuisine with a steak-forward focus, and have an incredible meat dry-aging room with a Himalayan salt wall. More importantly, their multi-level seating arrangement ensures that every single seat in the restaurant has an excellent view.

Now my boyfriend and I weren’t really feeling steak that day hence we went with the Petite Seafood Tower. It was equally as delightful, but do give their Cape Grim or Mishima Wagyu a try.
2. Red Maple Café
Address: 173 N Maple St, Burbank, California, United States
Phone Number: (818) 846-2327
Hours: Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00AM to 3:00PM
Red Maple Cafe is known for its delicious brunch dishes and unique “celebralattes.” While I’m not a coffee gal, I do indulge in an occasional latte or two. The Weeknd Tiramisu Celebralatte was an absolute delight and the perfect pick-me-up. They also have a Chris Hemsworth Sea Salt Toffee flavor that has been approved by the Marvel actor himself.
My boyfriend ordered the Papas con Chorizo plate with two over-medium eggs paired with breakfast potatoes and Spanish chorizos. I went with one of their specials and I don’t recall the name, but it had two eggs atop a bed of tortilla chips. Both were super yummy. 9/10!
3. Finney’s Crafthouse
Address: #102-164 E Palm Ave, Burbank, California, United States
Phone Number: (818) 572-4610
Hours: Sunday to Thursday from 11:00AM to 10:00PM; Friday & Saturday from 11:00AM to 11:00PM
Poke Nachos on wonton crisps.
Mango Habañero Hot Wings.
Finney’s is one of the most popular Downtown Burbank restaurants amongst locals and tourists alike. They have a fantastic selection of beers that feature different styles and seasonal flavors from breweries across California. I especially liked the Cali Creamin’, which is a vanilla cream ale with a cream soda kick. Their Poke Nachos were tasty too and the ultimate drunk food to snack on.
4. Bea Bea’s

Address: 353 N Pass Ave, Burbank California, United States
Phone Number: (818) 572-4610
Hours: Open daily from 8:00AM to 3:00PM
There’s no better way to start the day than a hearty breakfast.
I’d found out about this gem while staying at Hotel Amarano cross the street. The hotel staff recommended this as the best place to eat in Burbank, and I was immediately sold when I heard about their white chocolate chip matcha pancakes. (It’s called the Green Tea Monster.)
Rookie me unfortunately didn’t realize how busy they get. I thought I could grab breakfast here before heading out of town, but the wait was over an hour and I wouldn’t have made my flight in time. Needless to say, I’ll definitely be returning to Burbank!
5. Coffee Commissary
Address: 3121 W Olive Ave, Burbank, California, United States
Phone Number: (323) 782-1465
Hours: Open daily from 7:00AM to 6:00PM
Coffee Commissary has six branches and a food truck across California with the Olive Avenue location being the most Instagrammable one with a colorful mural.
Unfortunately, this was another one of the best Burbank restaurants we’d missed, as we didn’t have time to wait in line. However, I hear their breakfast burrito is delish and I’ll for sure be back to try it!
