My Mom and I have been here three times, each time hoping the previous experience was perhaps a fluke. This time we went at 11:30 a.m. where it was not crowded at all and we thought it would be quiet enough to have a normal conversation. With the restaurant full, literally a loud stressful place to eat is the environment.... More

Absolutely loved this restaurant for lunch today. Wonderful homemade cream of spinach soup, Caesar salad dressing really special and lean and tasty Reuben sandwich. Grilled eggplant sandwich was also a great hit

Barefoot Cafe in Fairfax offers great breakfasts from a varied and comprehensive menu. They offer a great lunch, and an elegant dinner. Sometimes my husband and I go for a Barefoot Burger and sweet potato fries and coffee milkshake... So delicious, funnily romantic,, and the best burger anywhere. But all the food is good, well prepared, and from freshest ingredients.... More

Perfect and indulgent. You won't be sorry. I drove over a hour to get there and I'd return again and again. This dish here is everything a crab lover desires. The sauce was pure homemade and creamy with a slight taste of lemon and the potatoes perfect. The yolk runny so you can taste its richness. Con: The corn beef... More

Love the breakfast -- especially the organic food and the house made scones with lemon curd. Noisy and casual. At dinner the candles come out and the prices go up -- a little stuffy for my taste at dinner and the menu isn't anything out of the ordinary (pasta) ... so I recommend it for breakfast/brunch and during the week...

The service slow which we were prepared to forgive, except when we ordered there were only 2 other groups of 4 at their tables. They said they ran out of bread so they brought corn bread, forgot to bring wine and after 10 min we reminded her we were waiting, she eventually brought it with no apology. After 35 minutes...

stopped in on the way to Point Rayes and then heading from Point Rayes back to San Francisco. Both times we had the same very friendly waiter, I believe Jose, who was just great. Breakfast and all our different pancakes, pear, choc. chips - delicious. And for lunch we all enjoyed our sandwiches and salads. A really comfortable, yummy, friendly... More

I just had a sister weekend in Point Reyes. Had a great weekend and we wanted to have breakfast on the way home. Found this restaurant online restaurant. When we hot to the restaurant, the owner was a bit grumpy, but he came around towards the end of our meal. My breakfast was well presented with fresh ingredients. I ate... More

I drove here today based on these accolades anxious to walk in to a special meal and atmosphere. For us, this cafe/diner was noisy, stuffy, and smelled of burnt toast and diner food.We stayed based on these reviews and hoped...Crab Benedict was just ok, served with small portion of potatoes and no garnish while the turkey burger was just sad....
