Don't dismiss Sausalito as a tourist trap quite yet. The small Marin town is home to a vibrant sailing community, a slew of beautiful walks and bike rides, and lately, some truly excellent eating and drinking options.
'Sausalito' on Serious Eats
In Sausalito, California, there's a restaurant that so clearly specializes in fish that it calls itself... Fish. We made the somewhat incongruous choice of trying their hamburger. You know what? It's actually pretty good.
Breakfast, not burger, was clearly the business of the moment at Fred's Coffee Shop, but when I saw the Swedish Breakfast on the menu—a burger patty draped with American cheese and two eggs over easy, all on buttered wheat toast—I knew I had to try it.
I always walk into Fish intending to order something new, but it's impossible to pass up the Dungeness crab roll. The obvious draw is the huge mound of fresh, sweet, local Dungeness crab. Other than a slight scattering of chives, this is unadulterated crab at its most delicious.
