We were in San Francisco last week and went to Sausalito for breakfast. This is not the first time my family has been here but I had not reviewed it until now. Lighthouse Café has delicious breakfasts. It is always busy and you may have to wait a little while but it’s not too long and its always worth it.... More

Whenever I visit San Francisco, I try to make a day trip to Muir Woods just north of the city. I like to hike the woods and usually leave in the morning. I always make a breakfast stop at this place on the way! The best breakfast and honestly incredible coffee.

The restaurant is family owned & ran so it's seating is limited. We waited approx 15 minutes but I'd wait longer for the special flavors & touches they put into their cooking. It truly was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had & I love to patronize quaint family places such as this.

Very impressive hidden gem! You will not be disappointed! A little small so get there early for a seat. Other than that, the food & service was great!

My three kids (23 and 16x2) had a great breakfast here while exploring Sausalito. This is a diner in the grand American tradition, small and friendly with great food and super friendly service. The huevos rancheros are exceptional--take it from me.

The cafe is a charming, cute little diner with good food and excellent customer service. I had the huevos rancheros for breakfast which were tasty. My husband had the corned beef hash - the corned beef seemed to be homemade and it was yummy. Coffee was flavorful and always topped up. The place had real character. Highly recommend it!

Upon arrival there was a wait outside of the restaurant. This isn't a place where you call and put your name on the list, it is very casual, and you wait outside- first come first serve. My family and I waited about 30 minutes to eat. It was an extremely small restaurant and we were all very discouraged given the... More

How this place ranks as high as it does we do not know? Way over priced for what you get and the service is much to be desired. We had to ask for a drink for our 2 year old three times. She asked us once during breakfast how the floor was be never can back to ask if we... More

A delightful surprise for breakfast. Great choices in sausage - fennel chicken was awesome. The best tasting blueberry pancakes I've had in years. Friendly, efficient, good eats. Had no problem getting seated,but when we left there was a line forming. Avg bkfast (2 eggs, 2 sausage, 2 pancakes) is about $12. Off the beaten path. Nothing fancy inside, just a... More

Tiny spot just at the end of the main drag in Sausalito. Good service, always crowded but they move quickly. Classic good value breakfast spot without the Sausalito price premium. No gluten free bread options but great breakfast potatoes so easy to live without here.
