Late lunch (they close @ 2:30 on weekdays) while traveling north on Hwy 101. Missed the breakfast menu but ended up very happy with our lunch choices...my dining companion said Fred's Burger was a delicious combination with blue cheese & a balsamic glaze, fresh greens topped it off on a tasty, fresh bun. I had the mushroom & onion cheesesteak... More

Went with daughter who lives in Corte Madera. She had driven past it many times but never stopped but saw the queue and thought we would give it go. Service great- hash browns to die for easily the best I have ever had. All the food freshly cooked in a kitchen open to view. Will be on our must do... More

Enjoyed reading about Fred's Cafe on Tripadvisor and made the 25 minute walk from the ferry. Easy to find. Extensive breakfast and lunch choices for sure. This place has the feel of the local's hangout. We had the 2 egg breakfast with the millionaires bacon. Large portions so the value is decent. With the exception of the bacon, it really... More

Wonderful little spot for breakfast. The menu is pretty standard - much like a typical diner, but everything is of such high quality and the service is wonderful. The millionaire's bacon is to die for, the special potato hash browns are delicious and even the coffee is the best I've ever had. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We sat at the counter and loved watching the choreography of the cook create his breakfast masterpieces. It's not cheap, but so worth it in this touristy town. The servers were very kind. It is so worth the time to find this restaurant away from of all the trendy spots on Bridgeway. You will NOT be disappointed! If you're visiting... More

Stopped here on way to wine country, arriving just after noon. Many we're enjoying brunchy eggs and French toast, we went for burgers, made with grass-fed beef and with turkey/veggie options. It was a great burger, accompanied by a generous side salad. Tropical unsweetened iced teas also good, and very easy parking, a bonus after an early SFO arrival.

Basically your typical amazing breakfast. Small town feel, great atmosphere. Get the Fred Special Hashbrowns and Millionares bacon. Absolutely incredible. Must get breakfast in Sausalito.

I have been to this particular Fred's Place twice now and both times have been great experiences. The crab omelette is unmatched. The deep fried French toast is also very tasty. As soon as you are done with your hearty breakfast, you can walk it off by the beach as the location is also primo. The service staff are exceptional.

It must have been a good 5+ years, since i last visited this place. They still serve the great French toast. Love it. In addition to this, ordered the Eggs Benedict with the "Millionaires Bacon" and hash brown, a must have. From what i can get what this "Millionaires Bacon" is, it appears to be a thick cut bacon that... More

Up the street a ways from the touristy section of Sausalito, Fred's is a local mainstay favorite for truly delicious breakfasts and lunches. Whether you're a visitor to the area or have lived here for years, you'll be delighted with the quality (and generous servings!) of your meal. My particular highlights have been the hash brown potatoes, orange juice that... More
