Nice place to go for coffee and some very nice deserts after the movies. One of the few places you can sit and get desert at a late hour. The prices are reasonable and when you get coffee the refills are free.

Beautiful cakes to temp you. Tables and chairs to sit outside in the sun and eat your chosen deliousness. Lovely tree lined street with other trendy shops.

This place is super underrated. Not only do they have good coffee, teas and desserts, this place also boast great sandwiches. A personal favorite is the tri-trip On Ciabatta with caramel used onions??? Oh so flipping good! Then a cup of coffee/cappuccino and a cupcake or a slice of one of their cakes = Heavens! We're back and ready to... More

I have been to Cafe La Tartine 50+ times. It is better than your usual cafe. It is great for a group gathering since you order and pay at the counter (although they serve your food at your table) so you don't have to figure out checks. And the food is good. There are several inexpensive options that feel like... More

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...
