Disappointed! The food is really average. I had ordered a tuna sandwich with the tuna cooked rare. I got a piece of tuna over cooked and probably not for the first time on a bread that was more a hamburger bun than the baguette advertised. My wife had a pan bagnat, but except the name it was not a pan... More

This is a small place with very good food. It becomes incredibly busy so I recommend starting your brunch early! We had some good pancakes and egg dishes here, I will definitely come back some time.

This was one of my best experiences with breakfast/brunch lately. The place is charming and offers a very casual and relaxed atmosphere. You should try their coffee and croissants with raspberry jam. I had their Cote Nord. One word: amazing! Very creamy, comforting and delicious. Those tomatoes were a delightful surprise. Tip: there might be a wait time but it's... More

The food is delicious, classic choices well prepared and tuned to the Provencal flavors. Short one star because service is sometimes on the slow side. The backyard garden is delightful on a sunny day.

The service was great. And the servers were rushed off their feet. Coffee great, cappuccino great. We had the savory breakfasts, well prepared. An omelets with ratatouille and roasted potatoes with roasted garlic was perfectly cooked soft and warm. Scrambled eggs with goat cheese and provencal tomatoes were a dream. And a truly tradition french omelet with orange marmalade and... More

Was visiting with a friend who lived in Emeryville who suggested breakfast in Berkeley and she wanted me to try La Note. Excellent choice. We arrived in Berkeley a little after 9am on Friday 8/29 and lucked out with parking a few doors from La Note. I was told it can get busy in there so I went to get... More

Our family of four was in California for summer vacation/college visits. We traveled from San Francisco to LA and back to the Bay Area. We went to La Note for brunch - it was one of the finest meals we enjoyed across 1,200 miles. La Note is decorated in shades of olive green, lemon yellow, Provence blue and lavender. French... More

If you like traditional French bread, butter and jam along with good dark roast coffee for breakfast this is the place for you. It is about as good as you will find in the USA. We also tried the ginger pancakes and they were also very good. Go early or be prepared to wait in line.

A sunny Saturday brunch in friendly Berkeley and we happened upon La Note. Well worth the 25 min wait, we strolled to grab a coffee in beautiful downtown Berkeley. I saw amazing French pancakes, egg dishes with lamb sausages and wonderful lattes in big bowls French style. The interior is painted and decorated like an old French country home, down... More

This is a fun place to meet friends for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. I enjoy the fresh green/Chevre salads. The bread here is fabulous! The brie, bagette sandwiches with a little heated tomatoe are yummy. Pancakes with Creme Fraise are great! Enjoy...busy. No reservations on weekends so be prepared for a wait or sign in and do something else like... More
