  • Berkeley Horticultural Nursery

    1310 Mcgee Ave Berkeley CA 94703
  • Monterey Market

    Fabulous selection of fresh fruits and vegetables at the best prices anywhere. People drive from all over to shop here, and its my corner grocery!
    1550 Hopkins St Berkeley CA 94707
  • Espresso Roma

    High-voltage coffee, a wide range of breakfast and lunch dishes at reasonable prices, friendly and competent staff, interesting mix of people, not a UC student hangout; wonderful to have it near.
    1549 Hopkins St Berkeley CA 94707
  • Freshly Cut

    You can get cheaper posies at the Monterey Market, but if you want the absolute best, arranged like a work of art, this eye-popping little shop is the place.
    1301 California St Berkeley CA 94703

    This place is special. The owner is author of a book on sustainable fishing, and all the offerings are marked as to how and where they were caught. You can get both fancy and plain seafood here.

    1584 Hopkins St Berkeley CA 94707
  • Gioia Pizzeria

    I personally prefer the pizza at Cheese Board up on Shattuck, but Gioia is closer. You can get into heated arguments with locals about Gioia v. Cheese Board, its almost a religious war; so try both.
    1586 Hopkins St Berkeley CA 94707
