Food Scene
One of the best and oldest pizza joints in Berkeley. It's vegetarian and they serve only one type of pizza each day. A very lively place with plenty of outdoor seating, live band, and they have a cheese and bakery shop right next door.

An iconic restaurant who's founder, Alice Waters, is accredited for pioneering the farm-to-table movement in the early 1970s and who's culinary style is very much the essence of California Cuisine. The restaurant always serves a set menu, reservations are required. Chez Panisse Cafe: a more casual and less expensive dining experience located upstairs, above the restaurant. Reservations are recommended, but not required. It's a great place to go for lunch or after dinner desserts and drinks.

Delicious Louisiana style cuisine. Very busy, and reservations are not required, but recommended if you can get one. Walk-ins during early dinner hours are the best time to get accommodations.

The first, and original Peet's coffee. If you're familiar with this coffee chain, this is where the founders got started. There's a wall of articles and antique brewing instruments displayed championing its history in artisanal coffee.
