Left Coast Depot is a casual Marin County eatery created by Chef Mike Garcia to celebrate California’s culture and the amazing resources for food, wine and beer right here in our backyard.
This California comfort food restaurant is a family-friendly dining establishment serving homemade food using local and fresh produce and featuring a bar with an assortment of specialty microbrews.
Chef Mike Garcia developed a menu utilizing as many local ingredients from our “Left Coast” as possible. Mike and his team prepare the food in a simple and approachable manner with a large enough menu to please all palates.
Mike was born and raised in the Bay Area growing up to work in and manage many San Francisco kitchens. Most recently he become the Executive Chef and co-founder of Toast restaurants in Mill Valley and Novato. His experience has brought him to this point of pleasing people daily with his approach to comfort food. He says, “There is no reason why an everyday restaurant can’t serve fresh, high quality cuisine.”
Left Coast Depot starts serving breakfast as early as 7:00am until 9:00. Show up the kid in you with different flavors of pancakes.
