“From breakfast made to order to amazing midday fare, from achingly fresh produce to locally raised meats, from seafood to microbrews, Latin staples to Italian delicacies, this is the mother of all small town markets. Everything is here and truly, if it’s not—it’s not needed. Stop here to break your morning fast and grab a sandwich for a hike, stop here on the way back to get your cocktail nibbles and fermented beverages. Stop here.”
“For food, the West Marin baseline is pretty high, but the Tap Room meets and in some cases, surpasses that bar…Arrive hungry; the limited menu has predominantly hearty dishes and the portions are generous.”
