After missing the spectacular eggs benedict from the Parkside in Stinson (several years ago the Parkside had the best eggs benny I have ever had - let me know if you know where that chef went) Fred's is the next best stop in Marin for breakfast. It's a Marin staple.

A hangout for locals for years. Consistently reliable for great brekafasts. Communal tables filled with regulars, bicyclists, and locals...

The reviews are pretty spot on. No queue, crab omelette was delicious. My wife had the deep fried french toast, with berries on the side - yum. Big servings. Attentive and quick service. Coffee was a bit pah, but otherwise everything else was great. Probably go again tomorrow, so must be good.

This is a great place to get brunch/breakfast/lunch. We stopped in on a Sunday morning and treated ourselves to the Mike and Frisco with a side of the Millionaire's Bacon. The portions are large, the food delicious and the bacon is to die for.

It was a good sign seeing the line coming out of the resturant when we arrived. They were actually seating multiple parties at tables to make space for everyone. The service was great, very friendly people. The food was outstanding. Eveything was worth the hype and the wait. The Millionaire Bacon was the best we'd ever had! Overall 5/5 Absolutely... More

This place is definitely worth the ride and wait. We waited about 15 minutes for a table on a Friday for lunch. The staff are very friendly and hustle to seat you and feed you. I had the deep fried French toast. This is a must. The eggs Benedict was also fantastic.

Stopped in here on our way from San Francisco to Napa and sure glad we did. We had the Eggs Benedict with their famous bacon and tomatoes (cant remember the name of it) and lemon ricotta pancakes. Both were incredible. If we're ever in the area again we will definitely go back.

We stopped last week on our way up the coast. I am from NJ and have eaten my share of breakfasts in diners. The omelet was the fluffiest i've ever had. The hash browns were outstanding, crisp and sweet. I almost think there is ricotta in them. We left with full bellies and yearning for this breakfast the entire week... More

When you get off at the Sausalito exit, you will see a sign to go straight for the historic downtown. You will be on Bridgeway. Fred's will be on your right about a mile or so from the exit. Definitely before downtown. There's a colorful awning, either yellow or orange. There are lots of choices on the menu, Our entrees... More

Don't let the unassuming atmosphere fool you; the food is absolutely top notch. Fred's is definitely a great stop for a casual but incredibly flavorful breakfast or lunch!
