Where to Eat: Greenbrae and Kentfield


Nestled in the heart of Marin, Greenbrae and Kentfield share schools, a zip code, and a commute along the eastern stretch of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard past Bon Air Shopping Center. Catering to a quintessential bedroom community, dining options revolve around the shopping center and nearby College of Marin, where an eclectic mix of bakeries and daytime cafés, fast casual and family-friendly restaurants are the norm.
