I was visiting friends in Berkley and found Cafe Leila. I only had coffee but it was good coffee and the staff were friendly. They have a lot of space to sit more than you think at first. I sat next to the window and read a bit while having coffee.

We were visiting from Italy and our "local " friends took us to Cafe Leila for lunch. I found it a great place not only because it has the same name as my daughter's but also because the food is healthy, tasty and there are a lot of vegetarian choices. The weather was nice so we enjoyed the beautiful garden.... More

On gets the impression that this place hires counter workers entirely on appearance, because they are always very slow, and often confused (though attractive.) The middle-eastern food is pretty good, the coffee drinks so-so.

The food is excelent, and the staff were friendly and considerate. We ended up having breakfast here for three days in a row because of our busy schedule and were not disappointed. Definitely a place I recomend.

My wife and i attempted to order breakfast 10 minutes before 3 o'clock, and were told by an employee at cash register that we are too late for breakfast....breakfast stops at 3 o'clock..... impatient cook wanted to go home I guess... Not going there again.

Thank Muata M
