This is for Eh from Carlsbad You are rating the wrong restaurant with your review We do NOT have mimosas , so it's impossible for any of the owners or staff to sit and drink at the counter The owner

The food was ok, staff was ok. What bugged me about this restaurant the most were the owners, they were just sitting by the bar drinking their mimosa and having a grand 'ol time flirting with the busboy while the staff was behind on waiting a packed restaurant. Also, one of the owners got up and asked these sweet Easter... More

Great place, highly recommend. Probably the hour long line is evidence of the high quality the restaurant offers. I was on my own so actually got in immediately. Delicious food, interesting atmosphere. Definitely recommend it!!!

If in San Francisco, rent a car, call Uber, or hike across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and go to the Lighthouse Cafe. Go early and you will still have to stand in line which will heighten the overall experience. When you score a coveted table you will be rewarded with an amazing breakfast and even better service.

Another really good breakfast in Sausalito. Everything was good but my wife's omelette was excellent. Recommended

I was mapping out our trip to California and read nice reviews about this place so I decided to put it on our list of must -eateries. We landed in in San Francisco at 9am, after our 6 hour flight from Newark. By the time we landed, we were STARVING. We opted to hold out for Lighthouse breakfast rather than... More

Our first time in Sausilito and we had the best food at this small but quaint restaurant. Everything was of high quality and delicious. Our hostess and server Debbie and Sarah were the best ever. If and when we return we will definitely make this a must stop.

You better be hungry if you go to this place. The breakfasts are huge and very good. I had the berry pancakes. They are gigantic and yummy. But I couldn't finish them. It was like eating a whole cake. Breakfast burrito is great too and huge. You can split meals here. Tried to go back again but the line was... More
