Sip coffee, eat brunch or dessert outside or in.

Excellent desserts, very good coffee and some of the breakfast, lunch & brunch dishes are very good. One is permitted to move the outdoor tables around, and sit as long as one likes. Nobody rushes you to vacate. Very popular on Sundays. One orders at the counter, & then the food is brought to... read more

We ate at Redwood City's La Tartine for dinner on a Sunday night before going to the nearby Redwood City downtown movie theater. La Tartine is a cafe-style restaurant where you order your food and drinks, sit down anywhere you would like, and then have your food served to you quite quickly. They have outdoor seating as well.

La tartine has the best pastries I have had in redwood city. Also, they make fries (sweet potato and French) that are perfectly crispy. They have amazing cream puffs and lemon bars, along with numerous other sweet. This is the best choice of food/ a light snack that is near the movie theater. Great location and amazing food.

I mostly eat light and they have a wonderful variety of healthy light items. I have eaten their salads, breakfast egg dishes. I usually bring home one of their deserts for later.

Not too many dessert places are open for a cup of coffee and a pastry in the late evening after a good movie or a play (Redwood City has both with three live theaters and a 20 screen multiplex). Tartine is a welcome option. There are always ample delicious selections of pastry and very good coffee and outstanding tea. No... More

The Greek Omelet is delicious! Their coffee has one free refill. Nice open ambiance that features the paintings of local artists. Both indoor and outdoor seating ... Free wifi makes it a place people can sit and work for hours ... will come back here again and again =)

This is a great place to eat after going to the movie theatre across the street. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Large, fresh salads with microgreens and house-made dressing. Omelettes and quiche for breakfast. French pastries galore. It's a very casual restaurant, i.e. order at the counter and the food is brought to your table on a tray. But... More

Whether you want soup, salad , or sandwich, or good deserts, you wont be disappointed, A very casual up to the counter and order, and they give you a number and will find you, whether your outside or inside. A good place to go when you want casual.
