Fantastic breakfast!

This quaint cafe has some great breakfast dishes! I had the Frisco scrambler which had avocado with scrambled eggs, and I've never had anything like it. Not your ordinary scramble. Great coffee in tall mugs!

The coffee and food was pretty good, the service was friendly, the best part was the millionaires bacon, my eggs were just a wee bit under cooked. I would eat here again.

We decided to eat here because of the reviews on tripadvisor. You wont be dissapointed! I had the salmon open sandwich and my boyfriend had the crab omelette. Best breakfast we have ever had (and he is very fussy!) ;) Service is great and you could sit for hours watching the chefs work their magic in the open bar space.

the food is OK, but I was really pissed that they try to get double tipping. they already charge the tip, but still left the tip part open and without any notice. I actually double tipped them. very dishonest. if you add tip already, which is 18%, you should just put that as the total.

Tom J, Guest Relations Manager at Fred's Coffee Shop, responded to this review

Hi Quandausa. Please know that is by no means our intention. Most restaurants in the Bay Area charge an automatic tip for large parties and have it stated on their menu. That tip of 18% is often less than the party wants to add and therefore the tip section is left blank in case the customer wants to add more.... More

Nice ambiance, with really good service and delicious food. My only complaint is that I thought paying $17 for the Blackstone Eggs Benedict dish was a bit on the pricey side even if the food was delicious and service was good.

Very small, you'll have to wait if you late. Can call for take out. We ate there several times. A breakfast with Millionaire Bacon is a must. Pancakes, French toast, eggs, all great. Homey atmosphere.

OMG, what a discovery! Highly recommended by the locals for good reason. It's small so it is usually crowded, but it's worth the wait. Be sure to try the potato medley as a side dish and don't dare leave without having some of their absolutely unique "millionaire bacon". We had the Frisco scramble and the Swedish breakfast, both of which... More

Fred's is right on Bridgeway in Sausalito. It's a little hole in the wall that has been there forever. There are several tables outside next to the street and some commune tables and a counter inside. Fred's does all the routine stuff like eggs, bacon, hash browns as well as anyone. But here's what they do better than anybody in... More
