$10 for $20 Worth of Food and Drink

At brunch, patrons can order old-fashioned granola ($6.50) with fresh berries or a mushroom quiche ($9.50) with onion and cheese. The dinner menu includes salmon tarte flambèe ($12), custom cheese plates ($8-$19), and a croque Napoleon ($10.50) with bread pudding, emmantaler, and black forest ham.


Noeteca‘s owners spent their lives looking forward to running their own restaurant, so it’s no surprise that the French-inspired tapas spot feels comfortable in its own skin from early morning meals until late into the night. During the day, Noeteca seems like a cafe, where patrons sip on international coffees from local roasters brewed by the cup or for personal-sized French presses. At brunch menu, familiar dishes share space with ambitious French-inspired offerings—the croque monsieur becomes a croque Napoleon with slices of bread pudding layered with black forest ham and emmantaler. When the weather is nice, guests can wander out to a patio colored by a flower and herb garden to learn the sun’s secret handshake.

As evening falls, candlelight fills the dining room and guests switch their focus to wine. The award-winning list includes more than 30 varieties, each available by the glass or half-glass. For dinner, patrons can build their own cheese plates or share a tarte flambèe, Alsatian flatbreads the San Francisco Bay Guardian said have “a lovely thin, blistered crust that was a bit softer and more luxurious than a typical pizza crust”.

I plan to dine there again. Loved it.

Our meal was delicious.

Nice neighborhood area to explore and great food offerings. I was there at lunch time so can not speak for night time crowd. Pleasant experience and would motivate me to go there again as subdued enough that one could carry on a nice conversation. Thanks to Groupon and Noeteca.
