Breakfasts in Marin

Vegetarian Benedict
Vegetarian Benedict - Bridgeway Cafe

There are many options for breakfast in Marin! The breakfast list was the first summary list I posted to my blog, and still receives a high readership. Every time I think I've gotten the list complete, even if not all visited, a new restaurant or overlooked place pops up! The list has gotten so long that I'm just posting one photo. There are plenty of photos of the places and food when you explore the links.

My definition for a 'breakfast' place is that they open before 9 a.m. on a weekday and have at least one protein choice on the menu (no American-style continental breakfasts count). Those restaurants who choose to open only on weekends or a weekend day for brunch are really not breakfast places in my mind, but I list them separately as they usually do upscale and interesting things on the weekends and make a nice round out to the week.

I continue to keep my blog's sidebar updated with a legend indicating with a * after restaurant links if breakfast is served there, and ** for weekend brunch only places (some brunch only places only serve one of the weekend days, so you should check before showing up). The links below go to my review (most recent whether breakfast or other), if there is a restaurant website, it's listed in the review. And now all are listed on Anna's Map as well, where you can enlarge the map and get the exact address and phone number.

As always, I welcome your pointers on places to enjoy breakfast!
