Yes, the food is just okay, and the staff and clientele straight out of 1975, but the 320-degree views of Sausalito and Tiburon on one side, and Angel Island, Alcatraz and San Francisco on the other, made for a splendid location for Sunday brunch.
When the nice hostess brought paper and crayons for the children, I thought it was the perfect low-stress opportunity to bring a little creativity back into my life. It's just a placemat, not a pristine blank canvas, after all. Easily left behind if it turns out poorly. As it happens, it's now displayed at home as a small souvenir of a quiet Sunday spent with family.
Here's a photo of the actual view from our table.
