We just ate breakfast at La Cote-Very pretty French restaurant in Berkeley. Service there was impeccable. There is seating inside and on the patio. My husband and I split an omelette and ordered a side of gluten free toast for him. The omelette was delicious...More

This place is POPULAR, so be prepared to wait. But, it will be worth it! We were a group of five and seemed to order a little bit of everything among us. The standouts were the cinnamon brioche with lavender honey and the Pain Perdu....More

The hazelnut chocolate French toast was rich and beyond words. Highly recommended for breakfast. Great hot chocolate like you would expect from a French restaurant. The chicken sausage was disappointing.

Great place for brunch, but there is always a wait. They take reservations sometimes, but not always. The food is delicious. The outside is lovely for lunch only as it is cold until after the sun breaks up our regular morning clouds.

When we want really good coffee, eggs with goat cheese and all around delicious food, we go to La Note. It is always crowded, and I recommend breakfast rather than lunch, which didn't impress (although there was nothing specific wrong with it--nice to sit outside...More

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
