We went to Sausalito just to try this place, and the experience was just "ok". First of all, the wait was SO long (over an hour) and after that long, our party (8 people) had to be split because there was no way we could...More

We visit Sausalito a lot, and the main place we go for breakfast is Fred's!!! Fred's food is excellent and the people are really friendly. Be ready to share a table if needed because they have limited seating

My wife and I visit Sausalito fairly regularly and only just found this place last visit. The service was great, nice outside location and the millionaire bacon is superb. Try the Benedict.

First time here with some friends, came on a late Sunday morning and surprisingly no long wait (which if you see how small the place is you would feel the same!) I had the Swedish Pancakes but I was a little disappointed because it didn't...More

Fred's is a wonderful place to eat. Breakfast or lunch is terrific. Specialty is their million dollar bacon. Very delish and different. Go enjoy, you won't be sorry!

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!
