Being Australian, I love a good, simple hearty breakfast and this place provided. The service was friendly and swift which was also a plus.

Heard about this place and was looking for a great breakfast outside San Rafael. Had omlette and pancakes. Good food and very friendly service. I was expecting more based on the reviews.

All meals at the Barefoot Cafe are excellent but brunch has become my favorite. The staff are excellent and always greet with a big smile. The food selection is wonderful and the quality is outstanding. If in the area it is a must stop. Enjoy!
