Wide variety of unusual shops and exotic food places. You could eat out every day for a week and not cover all the different type of restaurants.
This picture is of Chez Panisse on Shattuck so I assume we mean the Berkeley North Side. Many good restaurants, including Cheese Board Pizza (with live music many evenings of the week), Mint Leaf, Barneys Burgers, Asian vegetarian, more Thai on the corner, etc. Chez Panisse is the star but you need reservations 3 months in advance to get a... 更多
Shattuck Avenue is an incredibly long street, extending north from Oakland, to and through Berkeley. Recently, I took a 1 1/2 mile walk from the Berkeley Bowl north into the "Gourmet Ghetto."

There are many trendy gourmet places to dine on Shattuck Avenue including the legendary Chez Panisse in North Berkeley. There is also budget... 更多

Every block is filled with homeless, living, eating, urinating etc. Nobody, who lives here, goes to Shattuck anymore. It is only for the college students and the homeless. I would visit... 更多
