Nice French food and atmosphere. Interesting decorations. A pleasant little bistro right in downtown Berkeley. Reasonably priced and enjoyable meal.

Ate breakfast here today as we do every time we visit the bay. Breakfast is always fabulous. My family particularly likes to get a breadbasket to share. The egg dishes are always delicious and well seasoned. The pastries and the sweeter breakfast entrées are also always very good. And you can't beat the atmosphere. The tables are tiny though so...

This is a great place to go for a well-prepared meal--spiffy comfort food! Their fish and chips are hearty and the best around, and they have some lovely braised dishes and stews.

While all the meals are excellent, you may want to try breakfast. Excellent coffee with a variety of pancake, french toast and egg dishes. There is a small patio which is often open later in the day. Quite busy on the weekends for breakfast so expect to wait for breakfast if you arrive much after opening. Sitting in one of... More

After the weekend wait...everything was so good! The patio is beautiful and I love the tablecloths and dishware- all French. Enjoyed a latte and an omelet, complete with real sourdough toast and yummy provencal tomatoes. If you are in the area, don't miss this place!

We tried to go on Saturday but the wait was an hour. We then went on Monday and the wait was minimal and the food was very, very good.

Really enjoyed our weekend brunch on the rear outdoor patio. Authentic baguettes - very, very good food. Long wait time and no weekend reservations, so gotta be patient and flexible. If I lived nearby, I'd probably eat here daily in off-peak times.
