This is the place to go for breakfast. The restaurant appears to be always busy, we were there mid-week and we still had to wait a few minutes to be seated. We chose to eat at their counter, which I would recommend to watch the...More

It doesn't look like much but the service was fast, food very tasty with HUGE servings and the right price. We were lucky to beat the morning rush, otherwise we probably would have had to wait given the small dining area...but I would say it...More

Small restaurant. Seating outside is a must on a nice day. Service very good. If having breakfast u must try the sausage patty. Simply the best breakfast in marin

Marvins has a great breakfast. The place was busy and the food was delicious. Prices were very fair and the portions were big. I highly recommend Marvins for breakfast.

If you want a substantial tasty breakfast Marvin's is the place to go. Service is pleasant and speedy. On nice days outdoor seating is available. The corn beef hash, my favorite, is great.

We had breakfast there again, and as usual, it was delicious. My ham, Ortega chili, mushroom and cheese omelet was light, fluffy and delicious. My wife ordered the french toast (she's addicted). A great place for breakfast and lunch only.

GREAT Breakfast! Forget your cholesterol, huge bacon portions, good for lunch, informal dining, friendly service, very popular with locals so seating may be long, alfresco patio dining! Order bacon and eggs on cold mornings.

Probably the #1 breakfast restaurant in Novato. And it's not a secret, so be prepared to wait unless you go early. On nice days, outside seating is great and probably doubles their capacity.

My family and friends have gone to Marvins Breakfast Club for years and years! There really is no other place to go that is even close to the quality of food and huge portion sizes. Chuck and Nicole, Gilton and the staff are awesome! Their...More

Hi there, the average breakfast entrée is about $10 to 12 dollars but there are also smaller portion sizes and side dishes for those that want lighter choices and they range from $4 dollars and up depending on choice. Great... More
