Yummy omelet

First of all, the staff was very friendly and attentive, despite being very busy. I got the avocado with bacon omelet, which also had mushrooms. It was so tasty! I've never seen that combination, but it worked really well. Kids were happy with Mickey Mouse pancakes, and my husband got the French... read more

This is a typical diner with a twist -- the owner is Danish and they have many interesting variations on the menu from the Nordics. on weekends make sure you get there early to beat the lines. Food and service are impeccable and I would ensure a meal here.

Such good and big breakfasts!! Try the bacon, it's amazing. Meatball sandwich with beets was good and one friend had an incredible fruit pancake. Line up but worth it.

It's pretty easy to figure out that the go-to items on the menu are the Scandinavian ones since it has its own section. So, for breakfast we got the lox and bagels and they were the best we've had at a diner and as good as we've had anywhere, and all at diner prices.

I believe that was the name of the breakfast I picked on the menu. They weren't exaggerating; it was the ultimate American breakfast experience for only 13 dollars! It included amazing blueberry pancakes, delicious hash browns, crispy bacon, eggs (prepared the way you like), toast and a slice of orange. Coffee, as much as you want, was included. The restaurant... More

Visited for Sunday breakfast and enjoyed a huge and tasty breakfast after a very short queue - couldn't be faulted and well worth the wait - very busy but very cheery team

historically, Sausalito has never been a Mecca for world class restaurants . It could be that it's so close to San Francisco and that's a mighty high bar or it could be that there are so many " view" restaurants that there is no need to put in the effort because the views are delicious!

Many people like Fred's best and we like that a lot as well but this place is closer and you definitely get your money's worth. The hostess is as friendly as can be, even first thing in the morning.

Who knew breakfast could be so good?! We stayed in Sausalito for 2 days and this spot was recommended by our hotel for breakfast, we went both days as the first was so good. The staff were very nice, and the coffee was endlessly refilled. We tried lots of things and everything was superb, the pancakes, the eggs, the hash... More
