Wasn’t Philz #1 on this list last time? They were, but they closed in October due to lease problems and it’s unclear if, when or where they will reopen in the area.
Scores are more important than rank on these charts, since many restaurants are tied with others on the list and a restaurant may rise or fall by five to ten slots based on “the curve” and a small score change. Assume that restaurants that are grouped together within a few points on the survey are offering experiences of similar quality, and don’t worry about small score differences.
* Lappert’s is an ice cream shop and you can’t get any other food groups there (yes, ice cream is a food group!), but we felt that omitting it from this list would be a greater disservice to our readers than including it since it’s a popular snack stop in town for both locals and visitors.
** The Muir Woods Trading Co. Cafe is in Muir Woods, which is part of our coverage area. We include the Alcatraz Landing Cafe as part of our Alcatraz coverage, since Alcatraz and Sausalito are frequently combined on visitors’ itineraries.
*** We list the Golden Gate Bridge’s Round House Cafe and Golden Gate Bridge Cafe as part of our complete coverage of the Bridge, one end of which is in Sausalito’s 94965 zip code. Purists will note that the Round House and Bridge Cafe are on the opposite end of the Bridge, but we elected to not discriminate and include them anyway.
Not Listed: The following diners, cafes and deli’s in Sausalito did not make the Top 20 or are not listed since we do not have sufficient survey data to include them:
— 7 Eleven
— Golden Gate Bridge Cafe (Golden Gate Bridge)***
— Round House Cafe (Golden Gate Bridge)***
The leading restaurant on our list will always receive a score of 100, and all other restaurants will be scored on that curve. You can click here for How to Read our Restaurant Charts.
