Although the pancakes were recommended, I opted for a traditional bacon and eggs breakfast and was not disappointed. Hash browns were perfect and eggs done exactly right.

A nice clean coffee shop on the main street of town filled with locals and laughter on the Friday morning I popped in. Despite being an outsider to this local spot service and mood were excellent. I opted for a short stack and side of...More

We were recommended Hilda’s for breakfast and were not disappointed. The staff were attentive, making sure we had coffee refills. The French Toast was great...couldn’t eat for the rest of the day!!

We ate breakfast at Hilda’s twice in two days while visiting friends in San Anselmo. Ambiance is typical 1970s coffee shop, attracting a mostly older crowd (including senior citizen George Lucas, whom we spied at an adjoining table on our second visit), but the food...More

Nothing imaginative...But good solid, high fat, high grease, 'merican fare. The patty melt was pretty good The waitresses are pretty slovenly. You have to ask them to refill water and coffee.

Best florentine eggs Benedict I have ever had. Fruit was as fresh as can be. Husbands pancakes were thin and crisp on edge. Delicious. Highly recommend.

Not the original location, but a few doors down, Hilda's Coffee shop has been a staple of San Anselmo longer than I've been around! They have standard breakfast fare, but it is really good, as well as healthy eating options

Great food, good-sized portions and friendly service in a relaxed, comfortable environment. We've been eating at Hilda's for years, and keep going back because it's like a second home. While they've been around for years, new items are regularly added to the menu...so there's always...More
