A friend of mine brought me here over winter break. She grew up going here and her description was right on the mark. We went on a Sunday, about 10am. We didn't have to wait at all. We got a booth, but there is also counter seating. It has the feel of a 50's diner. Not only did we receive... More

We popped in here for breakfast on our way out of San Francisco and had a very good breakfast. Many inventive variations on the traditional eggs, hash browns and sausage breakfast. Lively atmosphere, friendly staff - a satisfying diner experience. As with many things around San Francisco, a bit pricey in my opinion.

You can tell a good restaurant in a tourist-oriented town by the number of locals that frequent it, and The Lighthouse has been a local favorite for years. Try the homemade corned beef hash; it has jalapeños it and is delicious. Another recommendation is the French Toast with hot fruit compote, and if you just can't decide, try the combo... More

A good simple diner experience, food was good, standard american diner fare, only draw back is that the place is small and gets really busy on weekends!

The diner is clean, staff is efficient to the point of being brusk. Let's face it, you are out for a well cooked meal and a self guided tour of the town. Their overhead must be horrendous. Some original preparations of old diner food nicely presented and plenty of it. So enjoy your meal and the perfect little town.

We have eaten at the Lighthouse many times. Again we had a late breakfast on Monday Morning after a swim class. The place is great for kids and has delicious scrambles and omelettes. Terrific coffee and the most wonderful fruit pancakes. You will not be disappointed!

Quaint little diner, should be on diners/drive-ins/dives! I had burger served on white lof with hasbrowns and it was delish. Sat at the counter with my family of 4. Friendly staff. Sausalito is a cute little town to drive through in SF area.

We were leaving San Francisco and decided to stop in Sausalito mainly because there was no fog! We saw the Lighthouse Cafe and decided it would be a good place for breakfast - it really was. We both took some time to choose what we wanted because there was so many fantastic sounding things on the menu but they kept... More

The scramble special was hearty and tasty and sour dough toast crispy and chewy at the same time. Definitely a great breakfast stop on the way to Sonoma. We arrived at 7:30 on a Sunday and got a table right away. The coffees to go got us off to a great Sunday of exploring.
