Dropped in for a late lunch. Entire family enjoyed each dish. Greek food to saffron pasta. They do utilize the local fresh seafood. Not cheap. Easy parking.

Breakfast was delicious. Service was excellent. Plenty of choices. It's just off 101 and on your way to Muir Woods, beaches, and a coastal drive. They kind of have the market cornered because we didn't see other restaurants as convenient. Compared to prices we pay back home, the Dipsea charges significantly more; we attributed that to where we were as... More

This well used breakfast place has a great menu that is basically a Comfort Food Bible. I have never been disappointed with my order, either in how long it took to arrive, to presentation to how yummy it was. I love and recommend the Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes, a healthier version of the old fashioned standby. The cottage fries yhat... More

Dipsea is truly a place to visit and eat, especially breakfast. The cafe is nothing fancy but very inviting and cozy. It is a "stone's throw" from the Pacific Ocean, if you can throw a stone over the impending mountains between the ocean and the restaurant. The menu is full of delightful breakfast treats that is a difficult decision to... More

this is a great long time mill valley place to stop for a full breakfast or a nice lunch. Portions are quite large and filling and fresh.Many of the staff has been there for years and it is one of the very few places to still find greek food. the gyros is great with a healthy portion of greek salad...

The food is ok but no in way commensurate with the sky high prices - 18 dollars for a gyro sandwich which is 6-8 at best elsewhere Most people don't know any better.

We stopped here for breakfast based on reviews. The food was good. Nice portions for the prices. There was really no one there at 9 am so we thought we would be on our way pretty quickly. Service was slow. We had to ask for our bill twice and finally a bus boy brought it to us. They weren't short... More
