Berkeley! A treasure trove of gourmets, goofs, wacks and wonderful

California Dreamin’

Berkeley – a mere Bridge away from San Francisco – and a world away!

A veritable mosaic of contradictions –

Berkeley: Down with up!

The beauty of Berkeley

 

 Walk to the coffee shop for a latte, cross the street for your  Hatha yoga class.  Right next-door is the wonderful independent bookstore, steps away from your  $10.00 manicurist.   Next, pick up a bouquet from the florist across street and stop in at the salon to get your bangs trimmed by Gracie who you’ve known for 10 years. Walk one block to the Gourmet ghetto and pick up the kale, Salmon, berries and clotted cream, and those spices you need; get the sharpened knife from Sur le Tab, a bottle of wine, and a hostess gift at the cute, little, gift store four doors away. C’est fini and c’est bon!

No Strip Malls.

No Driving.
