If you are in the area, here are 5 places you must see.
Rose Garden / Codornices Park: Delightful park with views of the Bay, showcasing a stunning collection of the Valentine’s Day favorite. Don’t miss the tennis courts or the creek in the back. Not to mention the 40 foot cement slide! Tons of fun for all ages.
Cheese Board Collective: The original, before all the Arizmendi babies. The Cheese Board offers an impressive cheese selection, awesome baguettes, and salsa worth mentioning. They even have a pizzeria, to boot. Truly a North Berkeley gem.
Fava Takeout: Fava is an actual hole in the wall serving vegetable-centric New American cuisine. They serve up super fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and plenty of fresh juice choices (this space used to be the treasured “Juice Bar Collective”. Truly delicious. Good people, good food, stop by and bring the kids!
Books Inc.: If you’re an avid reader, Books Inc. is a must-visit in North Berkeley (they also have various other locations in the bay). Known as “The West’s Oldest Independent Bookseller,” they certainly live up to their name; knowledgeable and friendly staff. Books Inc. sometimes hosts events, such as author’s keynotes and book club gatherings. A nod to Black Oak Books, which closed its doors in the same location after 33 years.
Lo Coco’s: This secret local favorite spot stops HERE. The original Lo Coco’s Restaurant was founded by Giovanni Lo Coco in 1966 in the California foothills. Ever since, he’s passed down his secret pizza dough recipe like a family heirloom. No frills Italian, served by Sicilians who mean business. Quite possibly the best pizza in Berkeley.
