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. In recent years they have also opened other Lighthouse restaurants elsewhere in Marin.
We respected this Danish heritage even more after one morning a few years ago 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, and two great club sandwiches. 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… or a traditional American one, Lighthouse is a great choice.
Something else that people should know about the Lighthouse? Got a great Lighthouse metaphor to illustrate your point, like “A beacon of sweet enlightenment for fans of griddled goodies”? Disagree with any of our suggestions? Please let us know!
