I like this place, i really do! I hate the wait, not their fault, but when you see groups of two walking in as they arrive while group of 3 wait interminable, something is not quite right in managing table size. Food is great. Price is reasonable. Sitting very uncomfortable, especially if you sit in 3 seaters facing the windows,... More

La Note is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but the 8 am to 3 pm Saturday and Sunday brunch is one of the most popular times, as is evidenced by the lines. On Saturday at 10:30, the wait was only about half an hour -- and well worth it. The brunch menu has something for everyone, and everything is... More

Let me start by saying the food at La Note is always good. Not cheap. In fact, rather expensive for a low-key, casual place. But the food is fresh, well-prepared, deliciously evocative of Provencal (French) cuisine, all that. But this is a restaurant that does not seem to know how to handle the many people who show up for lunch... More

Took us 30 minutes on a weekday at lunch in a not so inexpensive place! Obviously popular. A good range and good food. The soups, eggs benedictine and Nicoise salad were excellent. 20% mandatory tip and an exhortation to tip the waiters more is perhaps Californian, not very customer focused.

Visited this restaurant on vacation, and thought everything was delicious! We actually went here two days in a row, because everyone loved it. My family of four ordered the cinnamon brioche soaked in orange-water batter, sprinkled with lavender honey (Yes, it does taste as good as it sounds), the lemon gingerbread pancakes with poached pears, the oatmeal raspberry pancakes, and...

Never been before, but will return. Pastry basket! French omelettes, mocha in bowl, atmosphere, delicious food. Well worth a trip to enjoy a Francophile experience. Lots of devoted regulars. Just delightful!!

Came here to eat breakfast before a tour of the University. Very good pastries. The egg dishes were delicious. Make sure to not eat bite of garlic when you mean to eat a potato.

Had an omlette with ham and cheese, plus home made potato and black tea. Delicious food, small place but friendly atmosphere. Payment with AmEx not possible.

Don't miss the Ravioli - rich creamy sauce with walnuts, grapes, caramelized onions, and goat cheese combine into a sauce more delicious than the individual ingredients.

A lovely patio out back that's well hidden really makes you feel as though you are eating at a French farmhouse. Good and cafe au lair top notch. My husband had the brioche made into French toast option with real maple syrup while I had a very light omelette with high quality cheese. Don't usually eat toast but it was... More
