This is a cozy little place. It was pretty packed on a Saturday morning. There is outside seating and a few people were outside, but it was a little nippy so they seated us at the counter. Service was very attentive. The food came out quickly, and the portions were huge. The avocado, bacon, and Jack cheese omelet was outstanding.

We stopped by Fred's on our way from San Francisco to Muir Woods. What a find! The breakfast was delicious and fresh. The portion sizes are HUGE. We found that splitting a breakfast omelet and hash browns was perfect for me and my hubby. The next day, we breakfasted at Mama's on Washington Square and were disappointed by comparison to...

Friendly little place. Very tight and you may be forced to share a table, but good breakfasts including the best bacon on the plant ("millionaire's bacon" - a $3 upgrade to their normal bacon). Coffee is average at best, despite the title, but go there for the breakfast and delightful service. We'll happily return.

Yelped this place on the way out of the City, oh man, was it good. Not a huge place, several communal tables, we shared one with a quiet couple and then later with a nice lady whom we talked with for a good 15 minutes, very friendly place. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes with the millionaires bacon (yummy peppery... More

The staff was friendly, the food served quickly and it was quite tasty and the price was reasonable. Get the millionaire bacon, its worth it!!!! Also, don't wait to get there because this place fills up fast.

This is a true diner...good food, good conversation and good coffee. The menu is standard breakfast fare but eggs were cooked to perfection. The chef has cooked a few in his time. Hash browns fresh and tasty.

This has got to be one of the best breakfast restaurants in Marin. Great food; great service; fair prices. Whatever you do, don't miss their bacon.

This place is small - six tables and maybe eight bar seats; but the food is awesome. Portions are large and well prepared. Seating is communal, but this has always worked for us as most visitors tend to use the meal to catch up with friends and family so there is always a din of conversation punctuated with laughter during...

We were there around 10.30am for late breakfast / brunch. It was full house except for the counter seats. We choose outdoor. The table was set up very quickly and outdoor heater was on immediately. Yes the portion is huge. Love the pancake. Burger, millionaire's bacon and toast are all good. It is indeed a great spot for breakfast. Staff... More

We left San Francisco early to head across the Golden Gate Bridge and to Napa. Happened upon this place, it is wonderful! My husband was starved and we found this place on Trip Advisor. Huge portions cooked on the grill right in front of you. Terrific service.
