The new café is already garnering praise for its crêpes, sandwiches and friendly atmosphere.
The new bistro will have a similar vibe to Café Clem, but it will also serve crêpes and more substantial entrées, in addition pastries and sandwiches.
When the popular downtown Berkeley French-style café abruptly shut its doors, its loyal patrons were worried. But it's back, albeit in a slightly different form.
The second annual Berkeley Coffee & Tea Festival took place on Saturday morning at the Hotel Shattuck and, if you attended, you’re probably only now coming down from the caffeine- and sugar-induced buzz it induced.
FRENCH MOVE Café Clem has moved from its former spot on Seventh Street to downtown Berkeley at 2020 Kittredge Street, right at the central library. The new location for the café, which offers a French-inspired menu including baguette sandwiches, croques monsieur, pains perdus and coffee and teas, will also serve as the catering department for both Café Clem and La Note. The new Café Clem is inviting the community to an open house to mark its opening on Friday April 20, 5-7pm.
