Best Restaurant in Fairfax!

My husband and I ate breakfast here and the food was just amazing. We split a vanilla shake and it was probably one of the best shakes I have had. The food was equally delicious. The eggs and french toasts were cooked perfectly. The environment was laid back and the staff was exceptional... read more

We arrived 15 minutes late for breakfast, so they were serving lunch which was mostly sandwiches, burgers, and salad. My tuna melt on sourdough was tasty, and others in my group enjoyed their meal. Portions were generous. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Came for breakfast and you could tell the level of care that goes into the food preparation and overall management. Place was spotless and food delicious. Lots of nice touches like fresh pico and salsa verde, and if you are there in the fall, be sure to try the pumpkin pancakes!

I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. We eat here at least once a month. Breakfast is great, but dinner is even better. There are fantastic specials every night. If they have seafood risotto that night you have to order it. The service is friendly and warm and you always feel welcome.

Excellent breakfast, slightly pricey but Marin is like that. Coffee strong and good. Chatted with a diner at the next table, good vibes. Had dinner later in the week, breakfast waiter recognized me immediately. I liked that. Wanted the meatloaf which I had a taste for but they did not have it. Surprising for a Friday evening! Good waitress, friendly... More

The vegetarian option (and I am not a vegetarian) was just what sounded good to me on the night that we were dining at Barefoot; it was delicious and very large so I took about half of it home and had it the following day for lunch - still very good. The vegetables were done al dente, so they were... More

A favorite place in my own town, this is a sure fire place to take guests, and have done so for both lunch and dinner. Ample portions, well prepared and attentive staff. While clean and fresh, the decor is straightforward and the creativity goes into the food. Have even seen a customer come in just to get a take -out... More

We have never been to this area in CA but needed a quick lunch stop before a bike ride in point Reyes. I love this place. It's all homemade fresh cook meals. We had lunch but the brunch looked phenomenal!!! We waited about 5 min for a table. Definitely not bad for Sunday brunch. They serve alcohol and all kinds... More

We went here with a local who had recommended this place as being able to suit my dietary needs and indeed they did. They also understood the difference between gluten free by necessity (me) and by choice (very common in this part of California). I chose the fish of the day and it was some of the best cooked fish... More

Popular local place in laid back Fairfax. Sunny and warm although needs an acoustic makeover. Breakfast was adequate. Coffee was very bitter. For $3.00 they should rethink their blend.
