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.

What a great breakfast place and coffee shop. The portions are large and the quality if excellent. The millionaire's bacon is a triple thick bacon strip (like a bacon steak?) and the french toast are YUMMY. The pancakes are huge (takes up the whole large plate it was served on). Latte's were just so-so though.

Went in for breakfast on a Monday morning. It is a very small indoor space with limited seating for small groups. We sat at the counter. Service was very fast. We tried the deep fried French toast which was out of this world. Don't miss out on the Millionaires bacon, it's delicious!

We ate here one morning after leaving San Francisco. We all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere. We sat a a large table that had a couple people who weren't in our party but this added to the overall experience. We all got different omelets. My Crab Omelette was really good. My sister enjoyed the millionaires bacon. If I am... More

we eat at Fred's everytime we are in the area-highly recommend. Huge servings. Be aware they will seat "strangers" at your table, if need be-it's a very small place
