La Notte is our go-to restaurant when we can't think of anywhere else to or we find ourselves downtown Berkeley with way too many choices and limited decision making power. Fool always well prepared and tasty. A bit noisy on weekends, it's a popular spot....More

La Note is something of an East Bay (maybe Berkeley, most of all) institution. On Shattuck Avenue, in the heart of downtown Berkeley, it's easily reached by pubic transportation (bus, BART) and is a gathering place of significance for faculty at Cal, for visiting family...More

It seems kind of unnecessary to review La Note. The crowd gathered outside the door during brunch hours speaks for itself. It may take a while to get seated (especially if you want to sit on their beautiful patio out back) but they make the...More

Really like this place for brunch, but the wait time for a table means we don't go as much as we would like nowadays.

A friend took me to La Note for one of our breakfast hangouts in late December 2016 and I fell in love. The French feel and tasty food has kept me coming back once a month since I first went there. I always recommend the...More

I like La Note and others do, too; it is always packed. The nicest thing is the French feel. The food is decent, but not great. Croissants could be crisper and the chocolate ones should be warmed up (chocolate can be ice cold). Coffee good;...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.
