Tuesday Restaurant Review: Cafe M in Berkeley

Cafe M, Berkeley CA

Today I checked out Cafe M near Fourth Street in Berkeley.  I’ve been here a couple of times in the past and have generally enjoyed their food.

It isn’t often that you can find outdoor seating at a Berkeley cafe but Cafe M has plenty, perfect for people watching.  The indoor seating is spacious and comfortable and the staff is always friendly.  Cafe M’s menu combines good ol’ American comfort food with a modern-day twist.  {Note: the menu on the website does not seem to be up-to-date with the one at the restaurant, but does give a good idea of the options}  The menu doesn’t give a lot of options for people with dietary restrictions, but I was able to figure out something on the light-ish side.  I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich sans cheese and bacon.  The chicken was nicely marinated, although it was heavy on the butter and aioli.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good aioli.  But when the bread gets a bit soggy, that is a sign of too much goodness.  Nonetheless it was tasty and I would order it again.

My colleague ordered the grilled salmon cobb salad.  The portions were generous and came with a topped off with a big ol’ chunk of avo.  The salmon was cooked to a pink-deliciousness.  Someone else next to us had the crispy tacos, which looked amazing.

Next time.
