So often you miss places like this. So often breakfast restaurants try to become trendy or overdone,. Here is an old-school place with a chef working on delicious meals as the staff efficiently pours delicious coffee. We had a nice relaxing meal followed by a...More

Everything was good! We had breakfast eggs served perfectly, soup that was delicious, a special omelet of the day with smoked salmon and asparagus, and a roast beef, cheese and carameluzed onion panini. Breads seemed house made. Service had a hiccup or two but overall,...More

Away from the most touristy area; nice to avoid the crowd, Lighthouse doesn't look like much (and is on the small side) but was a good, solid place for breakfast and lunch items. Everything seemed scratch made and authentic. HUGE portions. We'd gladly go back.

wish corte madera had a great breakfas/luncht spot. This place is odd in a community that supports organic and sustainable ingredients. This food is anything but and is a depressing environment in which to eat. sad.

This is a fine way to start the day. The service is attentive and thorough and the food is always fresh and warm. I enjoy their stuffed hash browns. It’s in an unexpected location and easy to find.

There are just a couple of tables and a small (10 seat?) counter overlooking the grill, but definitely worth a trip for the fruit pancakes alone! Small, funky, vintage old diner vibe. We went 11:30 on a Saturday and it was a 15 min wait,...More
