Lighthouse Cafe

Fast Forward SummaryTM:  Every fishing village needs a lighthouse, and we’re lucky to have this one.  Lighthouse Cafe proudly positions itself as a Danish cafe, which is a pretty good start since an entire class of breakfast items in our culture are referred to as “Danish.”  This place has been here for generations, and feels very much the same as it did back in the 1970′s.

We respected this even more after one morning last year when we shared breakfast there with a Danish friend visiting from Europe, and the server’s conversation with him switched spontaneously from English to Danish.  He was thrilled to find real Danish specialties here in Sausalito, which made us look brilliant for taking him there!

We think of the Lighthouse as a great breakfast spot, but they have one of the best burgers in Sausalito, a juicy oversized 10 oz. French-roll-encased gem that comes with thick crinkle fries.  Part of the eternal Sausalito debate about “what’s the best local breakfast spot.  If you’re looking for an authentic Danish breakfast or lunch, Lighthouse may be the best choice north of the Golden Gate Bridge and south of Oregon.
