We have visited Cafe M several times over the past couple of years. Food and service is always consistent and good. The only thing i noticed this time was the menu seemed to have changed a bit. It was re-arranged and the prices seemed to have increased slightly since our last visit in August. Food and service still excellent and... More

Stopped in for some brunch at Cafe M. This family owned establishment is super friendly and very popular. There was a bit of a wait for Sunday brunch but we are glad we decided to put our names down. I had the delicious Benedtics Blackstone with breakfast potatoes and my husband had the French toast. We were more than satisfied... More

Weekday Bottomless Mimosas. Outside patio. Those are my top two prerequisites in order to establish a perfect outing. Great food with a diverse menu that contains plenty of breakfast selections including healthier options like buckwheat blueberry pancakes. They have a crab cake crepe that I love "the Del Mar" and some delicious salads. The customer service is always on point,... More

The food is average and not to be remembered. Especially after having been to Bette's Oceaview, the comparison was inevitable.

Have visited here several times. Never a long wait for a table. Service is awesome. Food is consistently good. All the omelettes are great! Only complaint is there is only 1 bathroom each for men and women so line can get long for that! Plan to return again for Breakfast on next trip!

It's not what it used to be in my opinion, but still a good breakfast in the area. Servers are great. Weekends are really busy, so get in early to get your name on the list. Best for small groups (2-4).

Stumbled upon this spot for a late lunch; super friendly waitstaff and delicious food! I had the Cafe M salad - rare to have jicama and beets in a salad and I love both. Sparkling lemonade served in a mason jar hit the spot. Recommend!

버클리에 방문했다면 아점먹기 좋은 곳! 오믈렛이랑 플로렌틴을 주문했는데 둘 다 깔끔하니 맛있었다 :) 웨이팅이 있지만 감수할 만한 곳이다. Nice brunch place in Berkeley. Waited for a while but it was worth it. Love their salmon florentine.

It was really good, reasonable prices (i paid 20 dlls including taxes for one huge plate of portobella benedict and a capuccino) and was delicious but i couldn't finish it, however i didn't like the fact that it was too fatty (the potatoes specially) but unfortunately most of the food here in the US is like that.

We found this brunch place by accident on 5th st in Berkeley. The menu is great, the service was great and the food was amazing!! So much so we ate there 3 times. Unfortunately it closes after lunch. Definitely worth a try!
