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.

What a great little find in this sweet town. Always a place to sit, always great service, and always delicious food. The owner, Tony, works hard to greet his patrons with warmth and professionalism in the old world style but the offerings are a lovely blend of old world flavors and new. Umami meets healthy in these elegantly created dishes,... More

The food is well prepared and generous portions are served. Tony is the owner and chief and is very friendly to his customers. Weekends get busy at the Barefoot as it is a popular place to have a family brunch, All other days breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, with dinner being more upscale than the other restaurants in Fairfax.

I had a piece of salmon on a bed of rice and some hardly cooked string beans. Three of us ate, two of us had one glass of wine each, and our bill (before tip) came to just over $90. The owner was rude to our waitress in front of us, and the atmosphere in the kitchen was tense when... More

We have been hearing about this place for a while but never had the time to try it until now. YUM! I can't wait to move up here so I can go again and again for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Among the 5 of us, all were very pleased and satisfied with our dinner choices. We started off with the... More
