The waiters—seemingly the owners—create a rushed atmosphere. This is not the vibe of the original Fred’s. Hurry up and eat, pay and on your way...definite lack of hospitality. You might as well stop at a drive through. Pick another place for a relaxing breakfast and...More

Found this on TA. Typical down town diner that is great for a quick feed that is reasonably priced. Due to popularity, you may need to share a table )but this adds to the charm) good coffee

Delicious eggs and great coffee. This is in the heart of Sausalito. Service is great. Early on a Sunday wasn’t too busy. But get there before 9:00. Outdoor seating with heaters and blankets if it’s chilly.

Classic Sausalito spot serving Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch for over 50 years! Try our special omelets, fluffy pancakes and unique french toast made with ice cream and grilled to perfection. Great for recovering after a wild night out or a meal with the family!
