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.

Nice town north of San fransisco. Lots of restaurants to choose from but we were looking for breakfast on our way north for the day. Sausage omelette was top notch, potatoes were a medley of sweet, Peruvian, and russet. Kids had French toast and pancakes, all good. Finally the coffee was good! Definitely recommend.

We were recommended to this place on our way to Sausalito (and the Muir Woods) and are glad we heeded the recommendation. Fast, friendly service; enormous portions; delicious food. I'm not someone who likes bacon but the millionaire's bacon is absolutely delicious. Omlettes were large and tasty. Highly recommend this quaint spot.

Staying in a house in Sausalito and went to this place (at the bottom of the road we were staying on) and had a great breakfast. Lovely eggs, tasty bacon and excellent sausages. Great coffee too. Really recommended.
