Shattuck is a busy road in Berkeley. Restaurants and shops are all around and also passers by. It is a nice place if one needs a taste of the town. Its problem is parking. Not easy at all. Better go to one of the side streets and walk a bit. The street is about walking anyway.

I like to eat so this a great place. All kinds of food and shops around and lots of foot traffic. Not crowded but busy area day or night. Not easy too park search side streets to park.

Interesting, bustling mix of students, teachers and visitors on a lively street with interesting shops and restaurants. Taking time to stroll is worth a little time.

Shattuck Avenue is my go-to street for food and entertainment in Berkeley. It boasts restaurants such as Venus, Namaste, Nanayiro and La Note as well as a Target Express, two movie theaters and a lounge/club as well as some bars. It's a good place to go if you are looking to have fun and get good food.

This is one of the main streets in Berkeley and is worth a look around to get a feel for the area. You'll see it all from it's many restaurants and shops to its homeless. Street parking (metered) can be difficult, so give yourself ample time.

This is central downtown Berkeley with two cinema complexes and many restaurants. The further north you go, the more expensive the restaurants become, culminating in Chez Panisse. The only reason to come here is to patronize a cinema, restaurant, or one of the live theaters on a side street. It is not a destination in itself. Street parking is very... More

The more is many homeless people, so if you are looking for Rodeo Drive, look elsewhere. This applies to the area near Berkeley Central.
