Nothing imaginative...But good solid, high fat, high grease, 'merican fare. The patty melt was pretty good The waitresses are pretty slovenly. You have to ask them to refill water and coffee.

Best florentine eggs Benedict I have ever had. Fruit was as fresh as can be. Husbands pancakes were thin and crisp on edge. Delicious. Highly recommend.

Not the original location, but a few doors down, Hilda's Coffee shop has been a staple of San Anselmo longer than I've been around! They have standard breakfast fare, but it is really good, as well as healthy eating options

This is such a local place for lunch. We first went their for some kind of meatloaf sandwich with a well-known director friend who was obsessed with it. Glad they are still around.

great place for breakfast. Nice staff, good coffee (ask for the strong stuff) like you've gone back in time - in a good way..

This is a good place for breakfast, the service is mostly personable and it is more enjoyable when it is not a playground for the entitled Marin families who do not care about other diners when out to eat with their spoiled children.
