Casual little place that serves breakfast and lunch. I like their soups and salads. Friend had a chopped salad ($8.98) and I had a small salad and chicken vege soup that was delicious ($9.98) . It is to the right on San Padro Road if you are heading to the Marin Civic Center, near a gas station. It was quite... More

Once again Trip Advisor and it's reviews did not disappoint. Hubby had a bacon cheeseburger and I had a cheesesteak sandwich. Wish I would have got the cheeseburger. It was fresh and grassfed. The service was excellent. We were there at lunchtime and there was a guitarist playing. Nice touch. I felt it was a little over priced but I'm... More

We were in San Rafael for a wedding. We stopped here on a whim. I really like Casablanca and Bogie. It was a little hard to find, but worth looking for. Small and quirky, but lots of fun. The food was excellent. The special of the day was a waffle with bacon and walnuts. Excellent. My wife had an omelet... More

The food is always good and the staff friendly. The friendly atmosphere is a wonderful blend of mostly nitrogen and oxygen with some other gasses and aromatics thrown in to please any one.

We made a quick stop at Bogie's Cafe for a hearty breakfast before heading to Sonoma. Location is convenient. The decor is a bit quirky. Staff is friendly. Food is good. Orange juice is fresh squeezed. Cannot ask for more. I wanted to order the Egg Benedict but unfortunately they only serve it on weekends.

Everything here is good! And consistently so. Great for breakfast, lunch or brunch - reasonably priced, and there's almost always a full house! You don't have to wait long though. Tight spacing so not ideal for a big group (more than 6) but it has a comfy feel, friendly helpful service and good sized servings of fresh delicious food. The... More

Quirky spot. Great for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Located conveniently between a grocery store and a bail bonds office.

We found this jewel in the most unlikely place as it's not on a major street or a strip mall. I asked myself where does one go if we want something more than a cup of coffee and don't want to go to a "chain" restaurant where the food is consistent but barely edible? Michael immediately greeted us a heartfelt... More

Bogie's is a small restaurant across the street from the Marin County Civic Center. Years ago we'd stop there for lunch and were never disappointed. More recently we tried it for breakfast, and we're glad we did. The eggs, potatoes, bacon, and bagel were very satisfying. Actually, the bacon was some of the best we've ever had. The fresh-squeezed orange... More
