Business Profile

Café Clem

  • 2020 Kittredge St Berkeley CA 94704
  • Dorothée Mitrani-Bell (Owner)

“Café Clem on Kittredge Street, has been reeling with the pressure of the minimum wage hike, as well as the increasing price of food. The café’s owner, Dorothée Mitrani-Bell, who also owns La Note restaurant, also downtown, recently shuttered the café for several weeks while she figured out how she could continue operating the business faced with the financial stresses.

In September last year, Mitrani-Bell addressed the Berkeley City Council and said simply: “I can’t survive,” explaining that the café’s margins were too small.”
