One of the best parts about working in Berkeley is the abundance of food choices. Whatever your culinary delights and preferences are, there is a huge possibility that Berkeley has one or more restaurants or eateries from which to choose. The Sexton Real Estate Group loves a great meal, and we have provided a list of some of the best eateries in Berkeley.
Gypsy’s Trattoria Italiana
Known for their 35 pasta plates, garlic bread, calzones, and Italian style sandwiches, Gypsy’s offers fine Italian cuisine at an affordable price.
Montague’s offers the best sandwiches Berkeley has to offer. While they are a bit pricier than your average sandwich shop, the size of the sandwich is large enough to feed you for two or three meals. We love them for their special sauce and their abundance of stuffed vegetables that accompany the meat and cheese.
Fantastic Japanese tapas, their menu is constantly changing with new specials and items and is based upon the freshest of ingredients. Our favorites include the corn tempura and jumbo squid.
Listed in every “Hottest Restaurants in the Bay Area,” Chez Panisse offers California cuisine with fresh local ingredients. Plan your reservations now, as Chez Panisse is so busy it can take months to get a reservation.
Voted one of the Best New Restaurants by Esquire Magazine, Gather is known for its vegan charcuterie, kale salad, spicy tomato pizza, and cocktails. Moderately priced, this is a crowd favorite among vegetarians.
Brazil Fresh Squeeze Café
Delicious Brazilian food includes tri-tip sandwiches, tri-tip plate, or tri-tip salad. Sit at their outdoor tables or take the food to go; either way, you cannot go wrong.
A Berkeley tradition, Yogurt Park is the perfect complement to satisfy your sweet tooth. Offering staple flavors such as Ghirardelli chocolate and vanilla, you can mix in some delicious toppings for an oh, so delicious treat.
The Cheese Board
For that quick morning fix or late afternoon pick me up, we like the Cheese Board for its scones, brioches, muffins, and baguettes. It is one of the best bakeries, and we recommend you warming up your treat.
A must for those who love ice cream! You get to pick your own brownie or cookie, flavor of ice cream, and toppings. Picture ice cream sandwiched in between two warm baked items and you have yourself a sinfully good dessert.
Zachary’s Chicago Pizza
If you like deep crust pizza pie with a variety of toppings and cheeses, this is the best mouth-watering pizza in town. Add a salad and some beverages and sit and enjoy the artwork on the walls while you wait for the pizza. Great food coupled with a great atmosphere.
Our list of great food can go on and on. But for starters, these are some of our favorites. Do you have a restaurant or eatery that you would like to add to the list? Contact us and let us know! We will share it online!
