The atmosphere in La Note is warm and inviting. In warm weather ask to sit outside in the back garden. There are lines down the block to get into the Sunday brunch; it's that popular. Some of the simple dishes such as croques, or cheese plate are simply perfect. There's usually a fine selection of desserts. I've not eaten dinner here. I believe it's only open a few nights a week, but breakfast or lunch? Definitely worth a visit.

This is our go to place for a truly wonderful meal. We have been coming here for years and the one breakfast spot we always take out of town guests. The reason is simple, we always have a fabulous meal. I recommend the ham and cheese omelet (fromage et jambon) or the Pain Perdu, it's always a difficult choice and it never fails to amaze me and bring joy to my tastebuds. Also go early! there is always a line!

I was taken back by their attention to the even the smallest detail. Their service, coffee, pastries and even the scrambled eggs were outstanding. I was amazed at how the lemon, ginger & pear pancakes were complex but sublime ....yes this is truly a treat and would HIGHLY recommend! I also would make reservations in advance.

For a great Berkeley breakfast, this place is the best bet. Hopping and bustling with people alone and together, it's okay alone; you don't feel like a loner-- there are others alone too and the people together are talking loudly enough for you to eavesdrop and you don't feel bad. Young families and maybe an Academy Award winning actress ( I think, I wasn't sure) -- it's a dynamic range making life feel like good things are bound to happen soon and life is on the move even though there's time to get a good breakfast.

This is my favorite place for breakfast in Berkeley. The hot chocolate is yummy the latte is even better. Have never ordered anything we did not like. Go early, it gets really crowded. The staff is supper friendly. It is a little loud but the food is worth it.

Favorite dish: Lavender French Toast and Eggs Benedict.
