This is the main commercial street for Berkeley, and although some of the older traditional stores have become extinct, it has made something of a comeback in recent years, with a better mix of restaurants and a few specialty stored. Good used book stores. Not as many pan-handlers as on Telegraph. The used book store inside the library is actually... More

I'm not exactly sure why, but I enjoyed my leisurely, tourist walk down Shattuck much more than Telegraph. Firstly, it's longer, and, while still maintaining the pleasantness of some small business, is not as odd as Telegraph with the stores that it has. (Some of the stores on Telegraph struck me as rather dark.) There are several french bakeries to... More

Lovely place to stroll, stop for ice cream, coffee, people watch, get a massage and find interesting trinkets and hand made pottery

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.

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.

Close by is the original Peets location at the corner of Walnut and Vine & Bryn Walker dress shop down Vine from Peets. All are well Worth a visit. Travelling south on Shattuck, the Virginia Bakery is an institution of baked Treats, now serving... More
