This charge has nothing to do with the food. Berkeley passed a minimum wage hike. The 20% is like a tip for all employees. We were then invited to add extra for our waitress. The food was tasty and well presented. My husband and I...More

Delicious breakfast spot in downtown Berkeley. Egg dishes were all well prepared and the pastries/breads were excellent. Good service for this busy place but be prepared to wait for a table on the weekends.

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.
