Off the beaten path foodie explorer
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 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.
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!)
