Great fun just walking around. There are many stores, bars, and restaurants to stop in . Of course, catch the side streets as you walk toward the Berkeley campus.

Lot's of great spots to grub. Better known as the gourmet ghetto. If you're looking for pretentious pizza this is the spot.

Once upon a time, in my early childhood the Key System Electric trains ran down the middle of Shattuck avenue and through the tunnel to the top of Solano Avenue. Then the evil corporate triad made up of General Motors, Standard Oil and I think Goodyear Tire conspired to destroy all the train systems so they could sell auto parts... More

A trip along Shattuck avenue away from the downtown area brings one to foodie heaven. Alice Waters has her restaurant here, where the slow food movement in the US began. But there is so much more. Cafe Gratitude with it's raw vegan menu. A Jewish deli. A gourmet cheese shop. An incredible pizza parlor. Thai food. etc etc etc All... More

Quick trip from San Francisco on BART. Some restaurants and movie theaters make Shattuck Avenue fun for tourists and locals. To visit Telegraph Avenue take BART to Downtown Berkeley and walk up to Telegraph. www.bart.gov/stations/dbrk/‎

Really nothing to recommend it. No reason to frequent unless you are going to the BART station. No signature stores. Spend your time strolling Fourth Street.

Shattuck is what you would expect from a university town. There are a few bookshops, two major cinema theatres, lots of restaurants and bars, drug stores, and one block away are the splendid Berkeley Public Library and the Berkeley Repertory Theater. Plenty of buses and the main BART station in Berkeley (right next to a taxi stand for those who... More
