Loved it: Great spot for a coffee and deserts on a Saturday afternoon outside. My sweet lemon meringue went perfect with a cold coffee. The rest of the family enjoyed their chocolates and eclairs.

We stumbled upon this area on a drive to San Francisco and stopped for brunch. I greatly enjoyed the California scramble with a croissant. The ingredients were fresh and perfectly cooked. My daughter enjoyed the chicken quesadillas which were loaded with chicken. The fries were homemade and delicious. My son had the clam chowder which he enjoyed. My husband had... More

Conveniently located about a mile from the Redwood City Stanford medical complex in an outdoor mini/mall of sorts complimenting a local theater. The entire downtown area (unexpectedly easy to get to from the med complex during rush hour) had quite a few restaurants to choose from and easy parking (be sure and find the payment box for street parking). I... More

Have gone a number of times to this cafe. Despite its french name...and some nice selection of French pastries and quiche...it is more Californian than French in atmosphere and menu. They serve generous sized omelets (most of them great, except the crab...which tasted less than fresh). Their quiches and sandwiches are tasty and most can be toasted. They usually have... More

I met one of my girlfriends for a quick coffee catch-up on a Sunday. This place was packed! We were looking for an alternative to the usual Starbucks or peet's and I had a great time here. I ordered a cup of tea and a gingerbread cookie. The tea was in a ceramic mug (glad because Starbucks always defaults to... More

I love having breakfast or lunch at La Tartine. They have plenty of outdoor seating which is great during the summer. I have found the staff is attentive and the food comes out quickly and is always hot. I usually choose a dessert for their display case to take home. My go to place in town for brunch. They also...

We arrived at La Tartine in the morning to find a number of guests enjoying outdoor dining and a vibrant counter staff. The menu boasts a number of great breakfast selections including eggs Benedict. We opted for the California Scramble and cappuccino. We picked up the coffee at the counter but the eggs were delivered table side. The staff clearly... More

My husband and I eat breakfast at Cafe La Tartine on a weekly basis. I typically have the cranberry orange scone and my husband orders one of the egg dishes. We both always order mimosas with fresh squeezed orange juice to accompany our meals. The baked goods are always fresh and delicious and the other food is also good. The... More

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 the table.
