Cute cafe

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... read 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.

We ate at Redwood City's La Tartine for dinner on a Sunday night before going to the nearby Redwood City downtown movie theater. La Tartine is a cafe-style restaurant where you order your food and drinks, sit down anywhere you would like, and then have your food served to you quite quickly. They have outdoor seating as well. The burger... More

La tartine has the best pastries I have had in redwood city. Also, they make fries (sweet potato and French) that are perfectly crispy. They have amazing cream puffs and lemon bars, along with numerous other sweet. This is the best choice of food/ a light snack that is near the movie theater. Great location and amazing food.

I mostly eat light and they have a wonderful variety of healthy light items. I have eaten their salads, breakfast egg dishes. I usually bring home one of their deserts for later.
