Our family enjoyed a lunch in Poulet on our first trip to Berkeley. Great wee spot. Chicken is fab. Staff very friendly. Wine inexpensive. Macaroni cheese was good too.

As a veggie lover I can always find a dish to try at Poulet although occasionally I get a meaty chicken breast at a reasonable cost. These days my carb free diet can even get a makeover by trying eggplant with yougurt dressing, kale salads,...More
