The Best Sausalito Lunch Cafes, Deli’s &  Diners

Some smaller Sausalito lunch restaurants have only reopened to offer service on Friday, Saturday and Sunday as pandemic restrictions have eased, or they may only be offering takeout. They will go back to more normal hours soon, but for now it’s good to call ahead to make sure the place you plan to go is open.

What are the best Sausalito lunch restaurants, including those that also serve breakfast?  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’ll find our list of The Best Dinner Restaurants here, many of which also serve lunch.

Scores are more important than rank on the Best Sausalito Lunch Restaurant chart, 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.

Not Listed: The following Sausalito lunch restaurants did not make the Top 20 or are not listed since we do not have sufficient survey data to include them:

7 Eleven

—  California Caviar

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

—  Round House Cafe (Golden Gate Bridge)**

—  Starbucks (Marin City)

—  Starbucks (Inside Target in Marin City)

—  Subway Sandwich

—  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.

* 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.
