Oh my goodness this place is awesome

If you are in Sausalito when Fred's is open....RUN don't walk to get here. Food was all very delicious and huge portions. You won't be disappointed.

Recently had a chance to re-visit Fred's, an old favorite of mine when I lived nearby in the late 70's. The place is brighter and fresher than I remember, but the vibe and the value are unchanged. Generous portions and attentive service with a laid back, communal feel, A don't miss.

Sooooooo super friendly staff and amazing and genuine service. He had eggs and millionaires bacon, I had avocado on sourdough with hash brown and we both enjoyed numerous coffee refills. Would recommend any and all visit Fred's in Sausalito for excellent service, generous portions at very reasonable prices.

We went to breakfast here based on all the great reviews, and were a little disappointed. The place was bustling and was obviously very popular. But it is small. We sat outside where you are right on the street with traffic going by. Don't go for the atmosphere. We tried the millionaire bacon, which was good, but a bit fatty.... More

Though we got there because a suggestion in yelp, it is amazing it's pet friendly place. Food is great for breakfast and brunch. Just consider the following, if you decide to eat inside the tables are for six persons so if you are in a group of three you will share the table. Consider they have a unisex bathroom one... More

It's a bustling place with shared tables and overly generous portions that are served quickly and happily. Everything is good.

We just finished our fantastic breakfast here. Be sure to bring an appetite. I ordered the Denver Scramble and my boyfriend had Fred's Hash along with a side of millionaire bacon. We were not led astray by the previous reviews. Great service and fantastic food. I highly recommend the potato medley and the Orange juice tasted freshly squeezed. You will... More

We were driving from Napa to Half Moon Bay and stopped to tour the Muir Woods. We searched Trip Advisor and found Fred's. A little local breakfast & lunch place in Sausalito. We walked in at 1:55 and they close at 2:30. The service and food were excellent. I wish we could have gone back for breakfast!

What can I say about Fred's. One fact is that this writer got his first job at Fred's washing dishes. The place was packed then and it still is the place all of the locals go to. Great breakfast spot any day of the week but bring a paper to read if you go on a weekend as it will... More

We go to Fred's about 6 times a year...we live in Marin County, and it is our breakfast go-to choice. We take friends and family with us when we get the chance. There are trendier, cuter, and much fancier places for a morning meal...but Fred's simply serves the best food. It has an extensive menu for breakfast or lunch...but if... More
