Deep fried french toast and bacon! It doesn't get any better than that for breakfast! This place has a nice comfy feel. It definitely is a place where you have a lot of loyal regulars.

My family has been going to Fred's since I was a little kid and it's still as good as it ever was. The atmosphere is unlike most restaurants now in that there are only a few large tables and a counter and everyone just packs in. There are always locals hanging out, reading the paper, and once you taste the food you know why they come back again and again. Their pancakes are seriously amazing! They're thin and HUGE and have awesome flavor and texture. I've never found pancakes like them anywhere else. The Swedishes are also great if you're in the mood for a savory breakfast. The last time we went back it was a little pricier than I remember, but it's definitely worth it if you are in the Sausalito area and want some awesome breakfast food.

Needing a great breakfast spot in Sausalito, I read a bunch of reviews and figured Fred's was it. What a huge mistake. This is not a best breakfast spot by any stetch of the imagination. My first impression was that it was just a not so

While visiting friends in Sausalito, we decided to go to Fred's for breakfast one morning. Oh my goodness! Their pancakes were worth the drive alone! I know where I'm going next time I'm in Sausalito!

Until moving to Sausalito, I had always considered The Pantry in downtown LA as America's best breakfast joint. Freds changed everything. I never liked French Toast previously, but I cannot get enough of the French Toast at Freds. It's

We've been making our way across the Bridge from SF to Fred's pretty much every week for the past 7 years and it's remained a consistent favorite. The French Toast and Pancakes are both incredible and since it changed hands a year or so

Pros: Consistently well prepared food.

Fred's place is truly an institution, offering table-sharing at big oak tables for the fluffiest, most delicious scrambled eggs, French toast (the secret is a dab of Vanilla ice cream in the batter), thin, German-style pancakes, good

I work across the street so I get to enjoy their food every week. Honestly, I've never had thicker, tastier bacon than at this place. Also, their omelettes have some sort of magic ingredient that makes them taste incredible. I've heard

Got roped into the rating for this, and was excited to visit. Located in Sausalito, about 15 minutes from SF. Have wooden tables, that feel "country", very good service, and nice breakfast. Awesome french toast that had a "funnel cake"

Pros: Homey atmosphere, good coffee, friendly staff

Whenever I take day trips to the wine country, I stop by the Freds for breakfast. Usually the restaurants in Sausalito are overpriced and targeted toward the tourists. However, Freds Place Coffee Shop is the exception. Its over forty

located in the middle of Sausalito away from busy tourist shopping area is this little gem of cafe. Old, quaint, friendly, and did I say old? 40 years and counting. Try their french toasts, you won't regret it.

Fred's is great if you want simply the best tasting breakfast. There is simply no one else that does eggs as fluffy! Portions are huge and the staff is friendly. The place is no nonsense.
Be prepared for a wait on weekends, and to share
