Fred's is my go to breakfast destination several times a week both while going
to work and and since retirement. For nearly 40 years whether a full and filling
plate of meat and eggs or just "in a hurry" toast and coffee, I was never disappointed.
Occasionally I'd have a burger and fries. No complaints, always generous and full of
beefy flavor. On weekends it is sometime a wait, but worth waiting.,

What a great way to start your day! They have a wide.variety of menu options. The service was very efficient and friendly. The bacon was to die for and one order was more then enough for the two of us. We had a nice walk into the city after we were finished.

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 keep waiting for a large table. Half our party was seated inside and the other half outside and the inside people ended up sharing the table with 2 strangers, which I found to be bit odd.
Our server was so distracted and brought the food in parts; with a 7 to 12 minute interval between each dish, so when one person was eating the other was watching and viceversa. The server also messed up our order.
The good was great but the whole experience wasn't that great.
We did try their famous "Fred's Sweet Bacon", which was incredible. It was expensive! Breakfast for 8 people cost $250 and of course they added an automatic 20% tip, which is NOT what our server deserved since she was so terrible

Based on reviews we found Fred's Coffee Shop facing the water in Sausalito.. Everything was as good as we expected. We had a short wait fro a table, then a few minutes later we were joined by another couple at our big table. We did not try the million dollar bacon, but I did order, and really enjoyed, the fried french toast. My wife had a standard eggs and bacon. Service was very good, especially for as busy as they were. Cost was reasonable for California. Kind of a fun way to start your day.
