The crab eggs Benedict are to die for. Always a great welcome. However, on the last two occasions we were hurried out which was a real turn off.

All meals at the Barefoot Cafe are excellent but brunch has become my favorite. The staff are excellent and always greet with a big smile. The food selection is wonderful and the quality is outstanding. If in the area it is a must stop. Enjoy!

We went for an early morning hike to Cataract Falls and were looking for a place to grab breakfast afterwards in the area. So happy we found this place. Was very busy but we were seated after a short wait. Many options and our food was served promptly. Nice feel to the restaurant and delicious food. Couldn't have asked for... More

Not sure about their offerings thru the rest of the day, but their breakfasts are great. Plenty of healthy choices to start the day and plenty of food on the plate. While the place can get a little noisy, it's breakfast. Fill-up and get on with the day!

One of my favorite places for brunch or dinner in the Bay Area, and so conveniently located on the way toward Point Reyes! Tony, the owner, will make you feel welcome and the generous portions of fabulous food will make you want to return again and again.

Add up the ambience, the staff and the food and you have a winning combination. We had lunch at this cafe and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and volume of the dishes we ordered. All dishes were accompanied by a nice, fresh green garden salad. Just as importantly, the coffee was the best we have had since arriving in... More

Cozy ambiance, warm atmosphere. Great personal service. Have had dinner only and the food was always perfect. Not to forget fantastic home made bread and creative desserts.

I came here for dinner yesterday and it was amazing. The chef (and I presume owner) is super friendly, as are the staff. I ordered the crab cakes which were out of this world. I followed up with the spinach and ricotta ravioli, which was also perfection. Highly recommend a visit here if you are in Fairfax.

A friend and I stopped in for an early dinner this week and were pleasantly surprised because we ended up having 2 of the very best entrees we've ever had in a restaurant. We passed on the appetizers and chose two of the nightly specials, seafood risotto and seared halibut. It was hard to choose among specials as they all... More

I went here for dinner once and it wa delicious. Another time we went for breakfast and found it good but nothing special and also was a bit pricey for breakfast. Nice wait staff.
