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.
