Real farmhouses probably do not have murals of farmyard life in the dining room, but they might very well have the checkered tablecloths and the home-style food that is served up in ample portions at this local favorite. The personal wait staff is always on the move with plates of homemade biscuits and gravy, pancakes, scrambled eggs and the other makings of a hearty country breakfast. For lunch, things take a more Marin turn with seared Ahi and Salad Nicoise served up along with the terrific burgers and fries. There is a separate menu for kids and a great meal for all.
Dipsea is a popular joint, especially for breakfast, but things are declining - and that's the fault of the cooks. I had a burger there for lunch two days ago and was in the bathroom with cramps within an hour. Bad stuff, I'm not going back.
I do not understand the fascination with the Dipsea Cafe. The food is mediocre at best, and seems to always arrive cold or incorrectly prepared. Prices are too high for what you get, and it amazes me how long people will routinely wait for a table here on weekends (45 minutes to 1 hour!!). Service tends towards slow and unfriendly.
On the plus side, the location is nice and the general interior ambience is pleasant, but these factors cannot overcome the major weaknesses in food, prices, wait time and service.
Having said all of this, Mill Valley struggles overall with a notable lack of decent dining opportunities - especially for breakfast/brunch. One notable exception is The Buckeye Roadhouse, just down the road from the Dipsea. Bottom line, don't waste your time and money - just go to Denny's in Corte Madera for cheap, go to the Buckeye for excellent!
this is a favorite brunch spot when we visit family in the north bay
the menu is good and the food tasty enough.
it is very easy to miss this restaurant as it is situated right after a blind curve coming off the mill valley exit of 101. similarly, leaving this restauraunt by car usually involves a gamble that you won't be hit by a vehicle rounding aforementioned curve. parking is also bad.
the place is generally pretty busy and the service reflects that - if you need something extra like a refill, expect to remind your server a few times.
