Berkeley Cafe Strikes The Right Note with French Fare ~ January 2, 1998


The only thing that would make La Note, a new Provençal breakfast and lunch spot in Berkeley, more French is if they would allow me to bring my dog or let me smoke after eating.... The minute you enter this beautiful cafe on Shattuck Avenue, you are enveloped in the splendor of La Belle France... The French atmosphere is authentic because owner Dorothee Mitrani-Bell, was born in Toulon and raised in Paris. “Homey” is a good description of the French-inspired breakfast and lunch fare at La Note.
