Never been before, but will return. Pastry basket! French omelettes, mocha in bowl, atmosphere, delicious food. Well worth a trip to enjoy a Francophile experience. Lots of devoted regulars. Just delightful!!

Came here to eat breakfast before a tour of the University. Very good pastries. The egg dishes were delicious. Make sure to not eat bite of garlic when you mean to eat a potato.

Had an omlette with ham and cheese, plus home made potato and black tea. Delicious food, small place but friendly atmosphere. Payment with AmEx not possible.

Don't miss the Ravioli - rich creamy sauce with walnuts, grapes, caramelized onions, and goat cheese combine into a sauce more delicious than the individual ingredients.

A lovely patio out back that's well hidden really makes you feel as though you are eating at a French farmhouse. Good and cafe au lair top notch. My husband had the brioche made into French toast option with real maple syrup while I had a very light omelette with high quality cheese. Don't usually eat toast but it was... More

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
