8:30 a.m. Weekdays: Best Breakfast/Brunch 

La Note

Weekend brunch can be a time-consuming prospect in the East Bay. Lines of people sipping coffee and looking hungry signal the inevitable: a one- to two-hour wait at most breakfast spots. If you're willing to put in the time, La Note won't disappoint. Better yet, if you've got a weekday morning free, you can usually waltz right in and sit down to an amazing French Provençal breakfast at this cozy little place. From the bowls of café au lait and the perfectly flaky butter croissants to "main courses" such as lemon gingerbread pancakes with poached pears and Emmental cheese and ham omelets, La Note serves up consistently delicious and artfully prepared morning nourishment.
