There is simply not much to recommend this popular café. It is across the street from College of Marin, so it is quite convenient for meetings with staff and faculty. The breakfast/brunch is serviceable, but nothing anyone should make a special trip to try.

For old folks like us, this seemed like it was mostly frequented by yuppies and millennials. The decor is really interesting and kind of unique. The food was good, but nothing exceptional. Portions were average but no more. The coffee was very good.For the prices,...More

The service was fast and pleasant. The food was good. There were quite a few selections, so any type of food you could want can be ordered there. There was plenty of seating. A pretty basic breakfast spot. I recommend.

This is a neighborhood place that is convenient to where I live. Open for just breakfast and lunch. They serve good food, but not the greatest, in many cases. I would recommend their eggs Benedict and their Huevos Rancheros. And, they have some awesome baked...More
