Best florentine eggs Benedict I have ever had. Fruit was as fresh as can be. Husbands pancakes were thin and crisp on edge. Delicious. Highly recommend.

Not the original location, but a few doors down, Hilda's Coffee shop has been a staple of San Anselmo longer than I've been around! They have standard breakfast fare, but it is really good, as well as healthy eating options

Local feel, great food, wonderful friendly service - what could be better? Three generations came here for breakfast and even the young kids devoured the stack of pancakes!! I just had poached eggs and fruit - how fresh and good but boring!! The coffee flows but the food disappears very quickly. Put it on your list if you are SA

Great food, good-sized portions and friendly service in a relaxed, comfortable environment. We've been eating at Hilda's for years, and keep going back because it's like a second home. While they've been around for years, new items are regularly added to the menu...so there's always something to try if you want to avoid being in a rut. We, however, usually... More

This is such a local place for lunch. We first went their for some kind of meatloaf sandwich with a well-known director friend who was obsessed with it. Glad they are still around.

This is a good place for breakfast, the service is mostly personable and it is more enjoyable when it is not a playground for the entitled Marin families who do not care about other diners when out to eat with their spoiled children.

Hilda's doesn't stand out as a great breakfast place in the area. There are plenty of other alternatives nearby. However, their food is consistent, and it's good food - it just isn't something I would talk about.

Yummy, Basic Breakfast foods. Large portions, great prices. If you need more than a bagel, Hilda's is the place to go!
