The French Toast and Orange Butter were absolutely fabulous. We rode our bikes over here from a campground in Larkspur, along the bike path. Very convenient access. Note that the front door is in the back so you can't see it from the street. Our waitress, K, was very friendly and engaging. THE best thing was the scones. I don't... More

We were here with out friends it was very good! We got out table fast, even though it was quite busy. The food was very very good, and the staff was very nice! It was not very expensive compared to what you got and it was very tasty! Would recommend to anyone who passes this Cafe! We will probably come... More

I've been to this charming cafe several times now and enjoy the converted brick garage airiness of the inside and the charming patio setting of the outdoor area. There's always a line on the weekend mornings for good reason, the food is decent and of course the setting. The waitstaff is friendly but uneven, you can get a great waitperson... More

We had the gluten-free blueberry pancakes. The best I have ever had! Decaf coffee was smooth. Great wait staff. Quickly seated on a Sunday morning.

We stopped in after a long walk along the former electric interurban right of way between Ross and Kentfield to work up an appetite. Unique experience. The restaurant is in a former garage. Huge windows on the south side let a lot of sunlight inside the building. We opted to eat on the patio. The building is on the north... More

Best breakfast with orange butter. Pancakes or waffles, orange butter is the way to go. I also like the drop biscuit with blackberry jelly. Opens early and the daily newspaper is waiting on the first customers of the day. Great clean bathrooms are bonus with this breakfast place. Their is always plenty of parking which is an added plus.

We were a group of eight people so we requested a longer table outside of the restaurant. We each ordered different kinds of dishes and breakfast meals and drinks to go with it. We had a fill and it was delicious. Most of the items were fresh and salad deep green. The food were presented very well. Some items came... More
