Restaurants in Berkeley, CA

Being a university town, Berkeley, California, has all sorts of places that attract students: coffee houses, lively taverns, eateries that are all about nutritional virtue, inexpensive ethnic cafes, and pizzerias, plus, of course, iconic Chez Panisse, which helped redefine American cuisine back in the 1970s. Roadfood’s top choices include Bette’s Oceanview Diner on 4th Street, which is most famous for its souffle pancakes but also has a full menu of breakfast and lunch dishes prepared with style. Rick & Ann’s Restaurant is a favorite, too, and not just because red flannel hash is on the menu. Most people think of it for breakfast, which is terrific, but it’s also home to such home-cooking square meals as meat loaf, lasagna, and roasted chicken. And, naturally, being in Berkeley, Rick & Ann’s offers plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.
