Nicoise salad was large but nothing to write home about. Spaghetti Bolognese could have used more seasonings. It is a good neighborhood eatery with good selections for everyone. Lunch menu offers pate sandwich.

La Note is one of the very best places in Berkeley where long lines form on the weekends for both breakfast and lunch. We do one or the other (usually during the week) every time we visit and love everything about the great experience. The inviting atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious, the food is well-prepared and the outdoor patio is... More

We were taken here by our local relatives for brunch on a Tuesday morning, and they raved about how good it was, and indeed, it was. We had reservations for the patio, which is charming. I highly recommend that if the patio is open when you go, that you sit there. The menu selection is amazing; filled with selections you... More

I have been to La Note many times, most often for lunch. I have gone with colleagues, friends and family. With one exception over the years, an improperly boiled egg that had that horrid green sulfur ring around the yolk, the food has always been at least very good. I have a very strong preference for the patio at lunchtime,... More

The food is so wonderful here. Baked goods are delicious and make you feel like you are at a little bistro at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Especially when paired with a huge bowl of cafe au lait. Excellent service, but long waits, so beware and get there early.

I chose La Note for its location and good rating but will definitely go back when I am next in Berkeley. Menu is innovative and our food was delicious. Service was particularly friendly without being over the top. Back patio is charming!

We ate here a few times on the terrace in the back. The flowers were in bloom and the tables have large umbrellas for shade. It is the perfect place to have a glass of Rose and salade niciose. Also tried their Ratatouille. Coffee very good too. The service was prompt and professional.

I have been here a few times for breakfast and weekend brunch and have always had a good experience. Expect a wait on weekends, but it's worth it. Efficient, friendly staff, moderate prices, *great* breakfast menu.
