Eat in Berkeley: La Note (Pt. 3)

Lemon Gingerbread Pancakes and Poached Pears

Brioche Pain Perdu: cinnamon brioche soaked in orange-water batter and sprinkled with lavender honey

This weekend I visited a favorite restaurant of mine: La Note in Downtown Berkeley. Previously, I visited this popular Proven├žal restaurant for lunch and dinner. Now, I can cross brunch off my to-do list.

I ordered the Brioche Pain Perdu, which was very good. It's basically French toast made with a thick slice of buttery cinnamon brioche. I recommend adding a spoonful of the homemade compote provided on every table. I also tried a bite of the Lemon Gingerbread Pancakes, which reminded me of the holidays.

Have you visited La Note for brunch? What do you recommend trying?
