Our family braved long lines on a Sunday morning for brunch at this extremely popular Berkeley bistro. Loved the cafe au lait in bowls, had omelettes, which were quite good, and various other dishes. It wasn't quite up to all the lines and hype, but...More

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
