The Best Restaurants in Sausalito: Cafes and Spots for Breakfast and Lunch

Autumn, 2015 — What are the best restaurants in Sausalito?  Twice each year we survey a wide range of blogs, travel sites, online forums and ratings sites, then create this ranking of Sausalito Cafes, Diners and Deli’s.  You can read about our methodology and how to read the charts here, and you’ll find our list of The Best Lunch and Dinner Restaurants here.

* Two restaurants have been given an asterisk for special menu limitations

Philz is a coffee shop rather than a restaurant and only serves coffee, tea etc. rather than food.  Since all of its competitors in Sausalito are on the list we elected to include it.

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 within the 94965 Sausalito Zip Code, so we include it here.

*** We list the Golden Gate Bridge’s Round House Cafe as part of our complete coverage of the Bridge, one end of which is in the 94965 zip code. Purists will note that the Round House is on the opposite end of the Bridge, but we elected to not discriminate and include it 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:

—  Bridgeway Bagel

—  Bridgeway Cafe

—  Fish & Chips of Sausalito

—  Il Piccolo Cafe

—  Mollie Stones Deli

—  Round House Cafe (Golden Gate Bridge)***

—  Starbucks (Marin City)

—  Subway

—  Venice Pizzeria

 

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.
