Brunch in Berkeley – where to go?  There are lots of choices; most of the good ones require a wait if you want to go at the usual brunch time, around 10 am.  Some of the establishments have lines long before 10.

We were a party of seven, including one toddler.  We wanted a place where we could have a leisurely brunch with cousins we had not seen one another in quite some time.

Cafe Leiturned out to be the perfect place on all counts.  Although we did have to wait on line to place our order, we were able to find a  table in their large, lovely, outdoor garden seating area, complete with water fountain, trees and an abundance of plants. The restaurant “specializes in healthy, tasty food at affordableces.  Foods are prepared on-site daily.” (website)

Lots of room between tablese made navigation easy, even with a carriage. The spaciousness and low-key atmosphere allowed our toddler to walk around and explore when she was finished eating without disturbing anyone who didn’t want to make friends with her.

Cafe Leila looks like the usual storefront establishment from the street.  We entered through street level, double doors, placed our order at the counter, then made our way through the main dining room to the patio out back.  Some people were diing indoors, but, if the weather cooperates, my recommendation is to sit outside.  One can also access the patio from the parking lot.

When our order was ready it was delivered to our table by a lovely y woman who checked back with us to see if there was anything else we needed.  No one rushed us. Everything we ordered was delicious.  We were able to have a delicious, relaxed bunch in a beautiful setting. Ivy was able to wander about safely, checking out the water fountain and many beautiful flowers.  We felt as though we were in someone’s backyard. We left feeling that it had definitely been worth the wait and making arrangements to return!

Single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located in the dining room.

Checking their website, I saw that they have jazz on Friday and Saturday evening.  Somehthing we need to check out!

As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website,, when planning a visit to “know before you go.”
