Heavenly olive sausage at Fred's in Sausalito

Fred's, an unassuming breakfasty diner on Bridgeway, has the annoying habit of seating small parties together at large tables. However, they have an absolutely fantastic sausage that I believe to be house-made. It's on the menu for I think $3.50 for a side, Italian olive sausage, which turned out to be lusciously fatty, zesty with olives and maybe ?oregano?, wrapped in skin with a pleasing snap. We had other nice things, deep-fried French toast, very very tasty buttermilk pancakes with the option of paying $2 for real syrup, which I snapped up and appreciated: I would much rather pay more for real maple than just be offered corn syrup nastiness. But the olive sausage was just so good. They also had maple pecan sausage, which we didn't try. Next time.
