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

We came to Fred's after asking a local where was a good place to have breakfast and this is where she recommended and it did not disappoint. Good and service were amazing especially the bacon! When we finished they were queuing outside for a table and I can understand why!! Definitely recommend this place

One order can feed two easily. We did not have a wait and food came out fairly quick. We both enjoyed our meals and the views driving to the diner are outstanding.

Stopped here on our way from San Fran to Sonoma County. Easy parking no line at about 11am. Terrific menu with most breakfast items you could think of. I ordered the eggs with millionaires bacon. I had no idea what that was but knew I loved bacon. It came up with 2 thick slices of bacon that were more like... More

I had 2 eggs over medium with Fred's special hash browns. The eggs had that taste to them that I remember as a child. Bright yellow yolk and creamy. The hash browns were delicious and had mushroom, red and green peppers, onion and lightly melted cheese over the top. Freshly squeezed orange juice was amazing. I would definitely go back... More

Great place for a traditional breakfast. Large portions, nice atmosphere. Sit outside if possible. Eggs Benedict were amazing, and the pancakes!! Definitely worth the trip in Sausalito. Get there early though!!

This is not a large restaurant, so if you get there for lunch right at noon, expect to wait. We were seated right away but the wait for our food was long because they had a large take out order to prepare. The staff here is very hard working, nobody is standing around. If you like coffee (I don't) it... More

We stopped here for breakfast before our Heath Ceramics tour. Hubby had the omelette with hashbrowns and I had the mixed potatoes and millionaire's bacon - everything was fantastic. We had no wait on a Friday morning. Found the crowd very fun - even met someone from our hometown. We rode the Golden Gate bus from San Francisco for $6... More
