This place stopped taking reservations and can be a wait. Not the BEST Burmese food in the bay, but probably in the top 3 and a very popular spot because of it.

This is a small, local venue that does a little bit of everything, from readings and local author Q & As to amazing jazz and jam sessions. The food is good. The drinks range from espresso to kumbucha to beer! The space is intimate.

Sure, you could get a delicious pie but you could also order a shake and some fried chicken with that. Dining indoors or to-go only. The new location is 3355 Lakeshore Ave.

This is fancy, quickly becoming international pour over doesn't need milk. They sell unusual and hard-to-get beans which make great "I thought of you on my trip" gifts for the coffee lover in your life. With only an open space setting area, it is more for chatting and people watching. No wifi. Don't think about ordering tea; I have tried, they just give you a look for a while.

Not a fancy atmosphere, but delicious Thai food and friendly service at a good value. I recommend the garlic rice and the pumpkin curry.

Wat Mongkolratanaram is a small Thai Buddhist temple located in Berkeley, California that serves a Sunday brunch that is all the things. The temple is available for use (just remember to be quiet and remove your shoes) but there is also a school and other connected facilities. The brunch is served in outdoor spaces, with table and open grass. As the brunch is growing in popularity so I would strongly recommend getting there before 10:30am.

Sports Basement hosts several free and low-cost events and classes for activity and outdoor minded people. I especially recommend the Acro Yoga taught by some noteworthy people every second Wednesday at 7:30pm in Berkeley.

Hiking and biking trails, many dog friendly. If you are comfortable hiking, I recommend the Sunset trail to commune with steams and brush. For a classic skylines view of San Francisco Bay, I recommend Monument Hike (short, paved, easy and elevated).

Inside a typical botanical garden is a not-so-typical bonsai garden. Often there are passionate volunteers on-site who you can ask all the questions that can come from these fruiting and flowering tiny giants. This is a mid-day activity, as it is often close early morning and evenings.

If it's the season, you can follow your nose to the garden and stay for the vibrant colors. Easy walk and good, quite spot to do some reading or art work.
