We always go for the Ricotta lemon pancake, the Millionaire Bacon and Avocado omelette! Great service and the nicest staff.

We had just got done doing a pre-dawn shoot of the Golden Gate Bridge at Fort Baker and we were looking for a place to eat nearby. A quick search led me to this place. We arrived a few mins before it opened and the first thing I noticed that we weren't the only ones already waiting for the restaurant... More

We stopped in for breakfast on the weekend of the Sausalito Art Festival, which is a solid event worth considering - art, food, and entertainment done in a welcoming and picturesque setting. Fred's menu offers a good selection, and the staff is friendly and efficient. We elected to dine outside in the morning sun - delightful. They have a nice... More

Dear Edward: Our prices are in line with most places in San Francisco that have similar location, atmosphere and food quality (which is usually organic and local). We are disappointed you did not enjoy your breakfast as much as most of our customers do. Thank you for your visit. More

This place was exactly what i wanted to find for our "vacation" breakfast... a quaint independently owned establishment that was big on taste and could care less about decor. NOTE: nothing was wrong about the decor, but our food was delicious. Out of the four items my family ordered, nothing was left on any of our plates... Order the Millionaire... More

I found this place through Trip Advisor and decided to lead our group of six to it for breakfast. It was really crowded when we arrived, but the hostess moved a group of 4 to move to a different table, so that we could have the only table of six. I had the Fred's French toast with million $ bacon...both... More

The food was good but nothing special. Service was slow. Had eggs with toast and avocado. Coffee was ok but nothing special. Obviously a popular place because there was a long wait. We sat outside which was nice.

Quaint little breakfast spot with large portions and some unique twists in traditional breakfast food. My wife's crab Benedict was amazing.

Loved this neighborhood breakfast place - this is it's 50th year. We sat at the Stammtisch ("community") table. Freshly squeezed orange juice was heavenly. Food was delicious, servings were VERY generous. A must do!

This is not fancy, not gourmet, just honest breakfast food in a very casual setting. You will be seated with strangers community style. Very small inside, a few tables outside. Food selection is fantastic, large menu, all kinds of omelets, scrambles, etc. Pancakes absolutely delicious, we had the lemon ricotta pancakes, just delicious. Large portions, no one leaves hungry.
