Scharffenberger restaurant goes downhill fast

Michael | Jun 6, 200501:07 PM

A year ago when the Cafe Cacao - in the chocolate factory in Berkeley - was new, I couldn't wait to recommend it. It had a certain freshness and pizzazz! and was in a pretty space.

I made the mistake of taking friends from NYC there for brunch this AM: every dish was cold, the place was deserted at 10:30 AM (this after my being told on the phone that I would have trouble getting a table) the waitperson did not even bring butter to the table. Even the $8.50 special chocolate cake was mediocre in my opinion. What a disappointment!

Anybody had an experience of the Cafe Cacao?
