“Microbrewery, very popular. With the stainless steel tanks and throng of local devotees, it is noisy. Happy hour weekdays 3-6pm. If you enjoy local artisinal food and beer don't miss it! ”

Italian Restaurant

“If you want a good steak - this is the place. Though part of a chain, it maintains a high standard by using imported items. Stick to the meat and warm bread - pasta dishes not as good. 7 minute walk.”

Cafe

“The owner is very friendly and relaxed, he clearly loves running the restaurant. They have an interesting array of teas available, the owner is well informed on their origin, flavor profile etc. Ask for a recommendation. I appreciate that all dishes are MSG-free. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available. For lunch I enjoy one of the the Chef's Specials: Five-flavored tofu with pork, and a pot of hot tea. ”

“Probably the best karaoke bar we’ve ever been to. It’s in the El Cerrito shopping plaza and doesn’t look like much from the outside, but that all changes once you step inside. Pick a song and sing to a crowd of dancing fans (90’s hip hop is usually a big hit, because people dance more than they pay attention to your voice).”
