A Perfect Day Trip to Sausalito

 If you want to experience the true local flavor of Sausalito head for Caledonia Street. Just a 10 minute walk from the ferry terminal along Bridgeway. Caledonia is Sausalito's hidden gem.

Sprinkled with boutiques and restaurants you can easily fill a day exploring like a local.  Here are some of our favorites spots.


Start your morning off with a coffee and breakfast at Cibo's (1201 Bridgeway).  This light and airy cafe is usually bustling with activity with groups of bicyclists refueling and hanging out. Try the vegetable hash or avocado toast. www.cibosausalito.com

Sarah Swell

Stroll the shops along Caledonia and be sure to stop in at Sarah Swell's showroom (215 Caledonia) for unique, locally designed jewelry in silver and gold.  www.sarahswell.com

Baba Yaga Boutique

Baba Yaga Boutique

Tucked away at the far end of the street is Baba Yaga (510 Caledonia). A vintage clothing boutique curated by a local mother-daughter team.  Pick up some vintage jeans or artist designed tarot cards and t-shirts. www.babayagastore.com

Yoga of Sausalito

Yoga of Sausalito (110 Caledonia) has a cute retail store for unique yoga clothing and accessories. Check their calendar for special events and drop in for a special weekend workshop. www.yogaofsausalito.com

Driver's Market

Pick up lunch at this gourmet market (200 Caledonia) selling many locally produced items with a great deli counter and prepared foods. We love the rice bowl with fresh spinach, the breakfast burrito and the Indian hot plates. Eat at one of their tables outside or take food to go for a picnic down by the water. www.driversmarket.com

Float Spa

Relax and reboot in the flotation tanks at Float Spa.  I haven't tried this out myself, but so many people swear by this for clearing the mind today and soul. www.thefloatspas.com

Sausalito house boats

Continue your exploration along Bridgeway heading towards Mill Valley to check out the famous Sausalito houseboats.  See floatinghomes.org for more info.

Stop in for a glass of wine and a snack at Le Garage (85 Liberty Ship Way #109) and look at over the Marina.  Or, stop by Fish (350 Harbor Drive) for a crab roll and eat at the picnic tables outside along the water.

Sushi Ran 

Finish the day with a special dinner at Sushi Ran (107 Caledonia)--reservations recommended.  We love the Miso Cod or any of the seasonal selections from Tokyo’s Tsukiji market. www.sushiran.com
