We visited this place in Berkeley as a family on Sunday April 7. Each one of us ordered a different main course like stuffed omelettes, crab eggs Benedict and pancakes with lots of fruit. We loved the food, portions are big and I'd say service pretty quick. Try to get a seat outside if the weather permits, and most probably... More

From the moment we walked in, every touchpoint we had with someone who worked for the restaurant was fantastic! The hostess to the bus people. The manager was extremely attentive making sure everything was covered. The wet burrito was huge and the mint lemonade delicious. There was so much care put into the experience. It made us feel cared for,... More

My lady friend asked if we could go to a restaurant where we could eat outside, so I googled outside seated restaurants and came up with Cafe M. So we met and sat outside in the sun for lunch. It is a like a hidden treasure tucked away between a bunch of shops and a neighborhood. The wait staff were... More

I've been coming to this fun shopping area for years, but just discovered Cafe M. We stopped in one weekday after 2:30 pm and were assured we could still have lunch. (They're open till 4). I had the shrimp tacos with spicy black beans, while my friend had the burger. Both were yummy!! Great selection of food and excellent service.... More

We have visited Cafe M several times over the past couple of years. Food and service is always consistent and good. The only thing i noticed this time was the menu seemed to have changed a bit. It was re-arranged and the prices seemed to have increased slightly since our last visit in August. Food and service still excellent and... More

Stopped in for some brunch at Cafe M. This family owned establishment is super friendly and very popular. There was a bit of a wait for Sunday brunch but we are glad we decided to put our names down. I had the delicious Benedtics Blackstone with breakfast potatoes and my husband had the French toast. We were more than satisfied... More

Weekday Bottomless Mimosas. Outside patio. Those are my top two prerequisites in order to establish a perfect outing. Great food with a diverse menu that contains plenty of breakfast selections including healthier options like buckwheat blueberry pancakes. They have a crab cake crepe that I love "the Del Mar" and some delicious salads. The customer service is always on point,... More

The food is average and not to be remembered. Especially after having been to Bette's Oceaview, the comparison was inevitable.

Have visited here several times. Never a long wait for a table. Service is awesome. Food is consistently good. All the omelettes are great! Only complaint is there is only 1 bathroom each for men and women so line can get long for that! Plan to return again for Breakfast on next trip!

It's not what it used to be in my opinion, but still a good breakfast in the area. Servers are great. Weekends are really busy, so get in early to get your name on the list. Best for small groups (2-4).
