I went for the first time yesterday for breakfast and ordered the Doc's Delight. The food was not the best food I've ever had, but I absolutely loved the atmosphere! It was definitely crowded and even on a Monday morning, my friends and I had to wait about half an hour. But once we stepped into the main dining area, it felt so warm and welcoming. Our server was very kind and attentive. I would go back any day!

Lines are long for breakfast, yes... but did you know they serve dinner, too? All of the night shift servers are REALLY good looking, and the food isn't bad, either!

Wine list is pretty good, prices are fair for portion size. COMFORT FOOD! Best french fries!

If your willing to wait for breakfast it is well worth it. Next door you can have a Peet's coffee while you wait. A Saturday or Sunday is always busy but so yummy!

Blueberry Orange Rice Flour Pancakes are Delightful. Beautiful fruit plates. Comfort Foods Abound. The red flannel hash is wicked. Packed on weekends and holidays. Frequented by celebs staying across the street at the Clairemont Hotel. Fun, friendly staff.

This is a great brunch spot and definitely pretty 'Berkeley'. As other reviewers noted, it can be tough to get into. It's a small restaurant and I put very little faith in the host staff to respect the first come, first served rule. So many times, some older lady has come in a half hour after her name was called and was immediately jumped to the front of the line. That's just not cool.

The food is excellent though. They have a fresh baked selection of a scone and muffin du jour. I really, really love the Challah French Toast. Their omelettes are tasty too. The coffee is a little burnt, but this is again a pretty Berkeley thing.

People really like to take their kids here. There are also a lot of people who come down from the Claremont Resort.

My adivice: come on a weekday. Even then, many people are not working/on vacation.

Sometimes the wait can be long and the servers can be busy but it's just a cozy place to relax into the weekend with some tasty food. I especially love their hash browns with beet! mmmmm!

Pros: Cozy environment and good food!

Cons: the wait

I would not recommend this brunch place to anyone. The food was below average, but the biggest problems with the place are the very long waits, and poor service. On a recent Sunday morning, we left our names and were told the wait was "at least an hour". That was fine with us, and we told the hostess we'd get a cup of coffee across the street. When we returned, they had informed us that they had called our name and that we missed our table (all within 15minutes). We were then told we'd get the next table avaiblable. 1.5 hours later we were seated. I don't mind waiting if its worth it, but this food is nothing special. The waffles were not good, and the other dishes took well over 30 minutes to reach us. The entire experience took close to three hours, and afterwards, you can't help but feel cheated because the food you just ate could have been had at a lower price, and from an establishment that actually cares about its customers. This may have been a good brunch place in the past, but it certainly isn't any longer.

What happened! This used to be a fantastic brunch place, despite the awful waits and the terrible seating (small restaurant, crammed, boxed-in-seating). Something recently though has happened, its terrible. The quality of their food has plummeted. Their staples, like red flannel hash and Yukon gold, which were always made perfectly, now comes out undercooked with hard-potatoes and burned bacon (almost all the time now!). I think that they got a new cook or fired one, or something, because the food now is greasy, and inconsistent. Coupled with the already bad service (new server every time we come in), and cocky management creates an awful and unpleasant dining experience. The service was always bad, but now food is forgotten, or made wrong/poorly/undercooked ect. Last time I went with my family for brunch the wait was 1 hour, we had a tiny table despite making a reservation days in advance. The service was forgetful and despite repeating our order, the food still came out wrong after 35 minutes of waiting. That was the final draw; I will not throw away any more money into that cancer of a restaurant. Take your father somewhere else for fathers day, he would only leave disappointed and upset.

Pros: Nice location, peet's next door

Cons: over priced menu, service, management

This used to be a fantastic brunch place, despite the wait and the close seating. However, this place has seriously gone downhill in the past few months. The service is AWFUL and the food is now greasy and not at all what it used to be. The restaurant is in a beautiful area and it's nice to sit outside in the summer. However, this place has failed us the past 3 times we've been there so we've now given up. Bad service, rude host, bad food. We won't be going back.

went here with my 3 year old. the hostess was very nice. we waited about 25 minutes for a table, which on a saturday morning wasn't bad.

at 11:48 the waitress came by to take our order--I wanted lunch-type food, but she said they couldn't do this until noon (12 minutes away). so i ordered an omelet. after 30 minutes with no food, we had to chase down our waitress to find out the story. she half-heartedly apologized, but our food took another 10 minutes to appear.

This place is awesome! The food is always great, and the service is always friendly and quick (even when they are busy). You also can't go wrong with the desserts! Waits can be long for breakfast and dinner, but if you go early you'll beat the rush.

Pros: Great Food, Always good, Friendly Service

The food is terrific, the menu diverse and the service remarkably friendly even in the hectic pace they keep. Other than the high noise level, this place rocks! Come prepared for a long parking search though.

Pros: Food, Service, Menu

Excellent menu, down to earth yet sophisticated. Excellent yellowsquash soup, delicious meatloaf and the breakfast menu is to die for.

Pros: great menu, breakfast!!

Cons: parking

Yup, the place is crowded for brunch on the weekends, but the friendly neighborhood vibe, tasty breakfast specials (waffles and omelets esp.), and homey atmosphere make for a reliable, relaxing place to breakfast with friends. Don't bother going if you're in a hurry, but if you want to catch up with a recently rediscovered acquaintance or just kick back and read the paper while you wait, this is the place.
