I love this spot, tucked alongside the wetlands! you can eat on the side patio, or in the huge dining room, and the food is reliably tasty! We stop here every time we come off of Mt. Tamalpais, and just love the breakfasts, fresh OJ,...More

Food was ok but service was terrible. Got there right at 7 but they didn't open doors until 10 after. Server was pissed off at the world. Good place to have a bite before a hike but don't expect much.
