BEST BRunch IN MariN

Locally Sourced × Crafted with Love



Located in the Heart of Downtown Larkspur,  Farm House Local specializes in Farm-to-Table Breakfast and Lunch from Esteemed Chef David Monson


Farm House Local opened in March 2013 with the vision to serve locally sourced breakfast and lunch specialties. Our philosophy is to offer a menu showcasing the abundance of local produce, carefully selected purveyors of meat and seafood along with the region's best coffee, bread, small batch wines and hand crafted beers. We appreciate and respect the bounty of artisanal products available to us in the Bay Area and we incorporate such products into our seasonal menu changes. 

Chef/Owner David Monson was classically trained in Paris in 1987 at the Chambre de Commerce, Ecole Ferrandi. After working with renowned chefs Wolfgang Puck, Jeremiah Tower and Patrick Glennon, David traveled overseas to Melbourne, Bombay and Hong Kong showcasing his unique brand of California cuisine. In 1995, David was awarded the Best Restaurant of the Year in Hong Kong at the Napa Restaurant located on the top floor of the Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel. After more than a decade overseas, David settled in the Bay Area teaching European Cuisine at the California Culinary Academy while opening  a highly successful catering company, Custom Chef. During the next decade, David enjoyed the emergence of Farm-to-Table dinner venues yet recognized the absence of similar breakfast and lunch restaurants and, as such, Farm House Local was created. We hope you will enjoy and share in our love of the best of the Bay Area.

A special thank you to our many long term employees and regular guests who have believed in our vision and grown with us through the years. In addition, I would like to thank Jeanine Thomas, my financial partner, friend and mentor, for her unwavering support, guidance, love and understanding through our many years together. The "Farm" would not have enjoyed the success of our efforts without her endless contributions.
