Gourmet Food Tour Of Berkeley From The Ghetto And Beyond


Off the beaten path foodie explorer

The Cheese Board Collective

Watch the worker - owners bake in the back of this 40+ year old institution as you inhale an organic cheese scone or pecan encrusted sticky bun, with strong delicious coffee.

June Taylor Still-Room

June jams in the back until she comes out to tell you about her rare fruit and farm-direct sourcing, with ample samples. The godmother of American artisan jam is a nice stop and place to get food souvenirs.


Enjoy shopping on Fourth Street before stopping for some affordable authentic Mexican food and a drink. Just a couple of blocks from June Taylor, this is a perfect stop on your Berkeley food tour.

Berkeley Rose Garden

Overlook sunset in the San Francisco Bay with a view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge, framed with rows and rows of roses in the foreground. Kids will love the down-home cement slide across the street they can whiz down on a piece of cardboard. (If you haven't had enough of the Cheeseboard bring pizza up to the Rose Garden for your evening vista!)
