North Berkeley & Thousand Oaks

The Peaceful Side of Berkeley

Living in North Berkeley, Home to the Famous Gourmet Ghetto

Of course, the “gourmet ghetto” is no longer called that. But everyone knows it’s the stretch of Shattuck home to the world-famous Chez Panisse restaurant, Berkeley’s cult favorite co-operative Cheeseboard bakery and pizza, Saul’s Deli, the original Peet’s Coffee…and I could go on.

North Berkeley is a beautiful place for students, professionals and retirees alike

North Berkeley begins where Euclid and Oxford end at the UC Berkeley campus. Often called Northside, tree-lined streets such as Virginia, Le Roy and Hearst pack in small, beautiful multi-family buildings as well as larger Mid-century condo buildings.

Edwardian homes and “Berkeley Brown Shingles” line Shattuck Ave where Chez Panisse, Peet’s and other ground-breaking eateries put Berkeley on the food map.
