Went here for breakfast while in Sausalito and omg we were so impressed! The pancakes were thin and absolutely delicious. Also got the eggs with avocado and the eggs were so fluffy and the avocado was so fresh. The food was INCREDIBLE! I'm not a huge breakfast person but if I could eat like that everyday breakfast would be my... More

A small locals place, good food and the bacon is the BEST! Can't go wrong. You may end up sitting with strangers the way the tables are set up, but who cares... all the more reason to be friendly!

I am a regular at this coffee shop which serves the best egg dishes and salads around. It is easy to get to - right on Bridgeway - has parking and is inexpensive. The service is excellent. My only complaint is when people going somewhere else poach on the parking.

This is a cozy little place. It was pretty packed on a Saturday morning. There is outside seating and a few people were outside, but it was a little nippy so they seated us at the counter. Service was very attentive. The food came out quickly, and the portions were huge. The avocado, bacon, and Jack cheese omelet was outstanding.

We stopped by Fred's on our way from San Francisco to Muir Woods. What a find! The breakfast was delicious and fresh. The portion sizes are HUGE. We found that splitting a breakfast omelet and hash browns was perfect for me and my hubby. The next day, we breakfasted at Mama's on Washington Square and were disappointed by comparison to...

Friendly little place. Very tight and you may be forced to share a table, but good breakfasts including the best bacon on the plant ("millionaire's bacon" - a $3 upgrade to their normal bacon). Coffee is average at best, despite the title, but go there for the breakfast and delightful service. We'll happily return.

Yelped this place on the way out of the City, oh man, was it good. Not a huge place, several communal tables, we shared one with a quiet couple and then later with a nice lady whom we talked with for a good 15 minutes, very friendly place.

This is a true diner...good food, good conversation and good coffee. The menu is standard breakfast fare but eggs were cooked to perfection. The chef has cooked a few in his time. Hash browns fresh and tasty.

This has got to be one of the best breakfast restaurants in Marin. Great food; great service; fair prices. Whatever you do, don't miss their bacon.
