There are plenty of cafes around Berkeley, and everybody’s got their favorite sandwich place. But if you’re hunkering for a little haute cuisine in your ham and cheese, then it’s Gregoire for lunch for you.
Across from Elephant Pharmacy, Gregoire’s little joint serves lunch and dinner, but the sandwiches are the real draw. It serves up organic fare done in French style, and the menu changes monthly. What do we recommend for April? Well, the poached sole was like butta.
Oh, and don’t forget to order a side of potato puffs–fried potato balls with mashed potato inside. They’re a meal in themselves.
