This is the perfect place for breakfast but offers so much more. A well priced and varied menu for any meal

I love this place. It's right on a walking path between Mill Valley and Sausalito and has the best breakfast/lunch/brunch menu. The omelettes are to die for, so much choice, but don't discount the pancakes, french toast and Benedicts. The decor is sunny, yellow and white. Old time kitsch festoon the walls and lovely old photographs of the area add... More

We went to this delightful restaurant for breakfast after driving over the Golden Gate Bridge and right before visiting Muir Woods. Food was great. Ambience was unique and fun. Deafly worth the drive no matter what. Free parking to boot!

A good place for well prepared comfort food. Generous portions. Not fancy and decor is basic, but food and service are first class. Parking is tight and be aware that the parking lot floods during heavy rain at high tide. It can be difficult to enter and exit the parking lot due to traffic on Highway 1, although the traffic...

Wonderful place to eat and relax after visiting Muir Woods. A little confusing to find the parking entrance. Large servings.

Dipsea is iconic. No pretentious food served here. Just a traditional breakfast/brunch/lunch menu with generous portions and fresh ingredients. Big buttermilk biscuits. Orange juice is fresh squeezed....making for dynamite Mimosas. Coffee refilled often. Glossy, house-made gravlax (not lox!) my favorite. Used to have an awesome Hangtown Fry omelette with local oysters, bacon and smoked mozzarella. My friend favors the Chorizo... More

I been over a hundred times and it's always good with friendly service. The weekday "The usual" is the best deal for breakfast. Get the biscuit.

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat. The wait staff was quick and helpful. The French dip was great and breakfast looked great from other tables. The place has a lot of charm and history.

I have to say right off the top that they were very kind to let us weary travelers come into the dining room and order only 20 minutes before closing. This gives them mega points in my book. The atmosphere was nice. As we were there so late, there were not too many other customers there, it would be quite... More
