Food Scene
Peet's started in Berkeley, and the Domingo Avenue shop is one of the original locations. Best to go at mid-morning, especially on weekdays.

La Med is a College Avenue landmark. Great Greek food and large portions. The interior is a throw-back to the 70's.

World - Famous restaurant with set menu, outstanding preparation and presentation. You need to make reservations in advance. If you want to try the food at a lesser cost, check out the Cafe upstairs - but reservations are also needed here.

Another iconic Berkeley spot. Just down the street from Chez Panisse, and it only serves vegetarian pizza. You can get it by the slice or a whole or half. One type of pizza, and it changes everyday. Not open on Sunday or Monday.

Great Chinese Food in a modern and airy setting. There are the usual menu items, but my favorites are the green beans, and fried rice. Very friendly staff, and open on Christmas!

A great breakfast and lunch spot. There are specialty menu items and a great staff. Expect to wait if you go on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There's a community table, and a couple of places to sit outside under an awning.

This is a new restaurant in our area, but a great place with fantastic homemade pasta and a friendly staff. Informal set-up with ordering at the counter and your food is brought to your table. It can be very busy with students and young families, but it's well worth the wait.

Sightseeing
The flagship university campus of California -- and beautiful scenery as well. Many buildings are historical treasures, and there's also plenty of events that have made history over the last 50+ years. Be sure to check out the new Student Union, the Campanile, and the Faculty Club.

Not a place to find the big blockbuster films, but great selection of indie films, National Theatre productions from London’s West End, and other art films. Walking distance from our home!

Parks & Nature
A great big park with plenty of attractions for the grandkids, including a merry-go-round, little farm, and miniature steam trains. Also a great golf course, a botanical garden and plenty of hiking trails.

Shopping
Lovely unique items, many imported from Mexico. It's not always open, and you have to ring the bell to be let in. if you're looking for something a little different as a gift, this is the place.

This is a great locally-owned bookstore with a variety of books, gardening supplies, and regularly scheduled author talks. If you're looking for a specific type of book, just ask one of their staff -- they're very friendly.
