Gourmet Ghetto

Berkeley’s renowned Gourmet Ghetto neighborhood wears its nickname proudly. The strip of Shattuck Avenue between Cedar and Vine streets is anchored by Alice Waters’ world-famous Chez Panisse Restaurant & Café, The Cheese Board Collective, and the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea, which have been neighborhood icons for decades. Simply put, the area is a laid-back mecca for those who want to eat and drink well.

Homes range from well-preserved Victorians and traditional, large Berkeley brown-shingled houses to lovingly preserved Craftsmans and bungalows. The architecture is old and varied enough to be included on neighborhood walking tours conducted by the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association. Proximity to the nearby Downtown Berkeley BART Station and the central shopping district makes the neighborhood highly walkable.

Live Oak Park provides basketball courts, picnic areas, and a small, open-air theater that hosts children's plays and Shakespeare productions. On Walnut Street, Berkeley Art Center offers a lively series of exhibitions, art openings, and lectures.
