The BEST breakfast!

You may have to wait, but so worth it! A bit tight, but cozy. The breakfast is delicious and if you're so inclined mimosas to go with your feast.

It was a great surprise to find delicious New Orleans food in Fairfax, CA. I am a native New Orleanian and can testify that the po' boys, the muffuletta, and the beignets were very authentic. The staff is very friendly and gave excellent service. Hope tp gp back to try the gumbo! Just be sure to bring cash because they... More

Great breakfast and excellent staff. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by the staff and everyone there was very friendly, especially our waiter. The food was delicious and the location is great. Make sure to try the hash browns!

Wonderful breakfasts and great coffee which is very strong and has a lot of chicory. Great place and the owner is a talented photographer. I live in Woodacre (the next town over the hill from Fairfax) I go here often as I can.

This is my absolute favorite place for brunch or breakfast in Marin County and they have beignets!!! I think I remember the owner is from New Orleans so this place definitely has a southern vibe which is welcome amongst all the northern California cuisine. Very down home with a warm "diner" feel.

I love the Hummingbird Cafe for a quick coffee and breckie prior to a mtn bike ride. The staff is friendly, the food New Orleans spicy, super fresh and cooked to a "T". Fun and old fashioned, in a very good way!

Went here for brunch and waited on the street to get in. Worth it. Sat at the counter and the owner was waiting there and the tables. Her son and daughter was helping since it was summer and they were off from school. They were not professional but earnest and sincere. My partner ordered the huevos rancheros and it was... More

We dined here for breakfast & had a great meal. The staff were lovely & very attentive but it was a little bit pricey for a breakfast. Recommended if you're not on a strict budget.

My friend had a "Green Tomato BLT" another winner on thick brown bread Delicious!! And dont miss the generous portion... More

Who knew the most delicious chicken n waffles and beniets are available this side of the Mississippi? We had an amazing breakfast. The guys ordered the Chicken n Waffles- complete with spicy syrup. I got an awesome omellete (feta, avocado and bacon- make your own) with fresh hash browns. My daughter got a BLT, but it was served on some... More
