We do not live in Fairfax, but we will go here for any special occasion or if we just want a great breakfast. Their coffee and home made potatoes are great! My kids love the waffles and pancakes. The lunch and dinner menu items are wonderful too.

I ate there twice during my stay, the first time for breakfast had a great eggs benedict Florentine and the second time a very good burger.

Any place where the Chief of Police dines has to be good! Try the Wild King Salmon, their steaks, the Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb and above all their crowning glory-dessert.

A miserable end to a perfect day in wine country. This is my first 1 star review!, the star is for decor, the food I had was ok, linguine with clams, and a lot of clam broth. The service was bad. Maybe it was because I was in a t-shirt and sandals on a Friday at 6 PM, it started,... More

Went to Barefoot Cafe for brunch and it was delightful. It is not fancy but offers fresh and simple food for a fair price. The eggs Benedict and vegetable omelets were delicious as were the sautéed potatoes accompanying them. They also offered varieties of organic iced teas. If you are in the area and looking for a quick breakfast this... More

This food is so delicious and so fresh. I come here on very special occasions or whenever I want to treat myself. It is such good quality. Everything about it is divine. The head Chef makes his presence known and is kind to everybody with such a warm heart. This place is a little gem. I wish I could come... More

Tony and his team produce top notch items for a delicious brunch. Sunday morning sees the cafe heaving with hungry patrons, all of whom appear to be having a good time. We enjoyed a hearty and tasty meal that should keep us going all day! Thinking about going back for dinner......

Just went up to Marin to see an old friend and was pleasantly surprised to find a new, very nice, sit-down restaurant in Fairfax. Really good classic American food (breakfast served till 3:00!), HUGE portions, delicious fresh iced tea in a simple, clean environment. Recommend.

Very tasty breakfast. I had eggs. Friends had blueberry pancakes (could not finish). Somewhat pricey ($3.00 cup for coffee). Good service.
