Breakfast in Sausalito

We spent the 4th of July in Sausalito.  Saw a really fun parade, had a terrific sushi dinner at a great restaurant, and saw 3 different sets of fireworks shows.  Details to come, with photos, in a later post.

But in the meantime, a note about our breakfast on Monday morning.  Locals all know it, apparently, but we had never heard of the Lighthouse Coffee Shop:


Well, it is worth the trip to Sausalito just for breakfast.  We shared mixed fruit pancakes, made with fresh blueberries, raspberries and bananas.  Absolutely wonderful.  But I also had Gabriel's hash, which simply was the best corn beef hash I have ever eaten.  Meaty, full of onions and peppers, perfectly grilled.  The side of home-fried potatoes that came with Karen's scrambled eggs, while delicious, became an afterthought in the presence of this hash.

Plus the two guys making the food right in front of us (we sat at the counter, totally fun) were like artists, never missing a beat as they moved through one delicious looking breakfast to the next.

I am already planning a return visit.
