We visited Sausalito this past week and heard about Fred's from a local. We decided to go there on our first morning there and ended up returning each morning until we left. We were told that we had to try the "Millionaires bacon". All I can say is WOW WOW WOW. Hands down best bacon ever. It is so thick,... More

Don't get me wrong, it was a great hamburger! However, this is a place for locals, not so much for tourists. This is the kind of place you'd go for breakfast or for a great (and huge) hamburger. The burger was excellent, but the place is a bit run down, the floor is slippery, and there are just five communal... More

I walked in and was immediately seated and was happy about that. I ordered a turkey breast sandwich which was amazing!! The turkey was fresh and delicious along with the fresh mozzarella, arugula, and mustard. My mother ordered a couple pancakes with a side of berries and that was great too! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys quality cooking! Kid... More

Fred's is a casual coffee shop that knows exactly what it is and does it very well. Fine dining and a great bottle of wine? Probably the wrong place. Breakfast or a burger or a rib steak sandwich? The right place! The rest room cleanliness was only a short step up from a gas station. You need to work on... More

We have enjoyed Freds' place for several years. The restaurant is always crowded on the weekends, so the wait is longer. Breakfast has always been good with great coffee.

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

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
