The 25-minute was worth it to have the fantastic ratatouille madame here (with two eggs on tip). Not often do you see this rush in the menu as a main entree and this one was special: very fresh perfectly cooked vegetables (at least five or six kinds) with great taste and spice served over couscous and topped with grated cheese.

Ice water and my iced tea was also served in small pichets--a nice touch.

Service was friendly and unhurried even with a long line outside at lunchtime.

The Pain Perdu and the pastries and Rolls looked fantastic as well.

The bread was great as well as the service and the accurate estimate on the wait time, which is always appreciated. Located right next to Pegasus Books, a great bookstore for browsing new and used books and magazines.

My wife and I were visiting the San Francisco area and we found ourselves in the east bay town of Berkeley. We looked for somewhere to have lunch, and we came across La Note. We had the most wonder meal, an Tunafish sandwich, which was over the moon and ratatouille that was spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant, it has a special charm, the wait staff is exceptional and the food is absolutely incredible!!

Omelettes are delicious, always tempting to have anything with their raspberry jam or coulis, but many other better breakfast places.

I think for breakfast at lunchtime especially if with person/people who dont want breakfast it is a good choice (salad nicoise is excellent).

Crowded, average coffee drinks and ti.ing of service can be an issue. Students working as periodic restaurant help is not super effective.

Patience helps.
