Fun, Artsy Shops and Cafes

Lots of shops - REI outlet, home decor, art galleries interspersed with a variety of cuisine. Makes for a fun shopping trip when you want something more unique than the local mall.

this is a fun place to visit and grab a bite to eat. Several Great restaurants. Parking is getting to be more and more of a problem.

Fourth Street is a place to take in slowly and enjoy. I like to peruse Sur La Table, the Italian deli, and the book store. I appreciate the lay out of the book store with anecdotal notes on some of the more popular novels. Crate and Barrel usually has sale items, as does Papyrus. I enjoy a cup of Peet's... More

We had a lovely breakfast at Bette's Diner and then stopped in the many shops along the street. A really pleasant way to while away a sunny morning.

If I were a tourist, I wouldn't bother with 4th Street. Nothing wrong with it, but there are many more interesting destinations in the East Bay.

I enjoyed the ladies boutiques and the prices were very affordable. My husband enjoyed the lemon bars and brownies and coffee at a local bakery. We enjoyed the street musicians as well.

This is the spot for a little shopping and dining. Sure there are some chain stores, did I mention Apple, but there are also some fun stores like the Gardener, and the street is very pedestrian friendly. Go and explore, join the Berkeley high crowd for one day...you will enjoy it!

Fun area to walk around, lots of good shopping, eating and just browsing. Only problem is sometimes hard to find parking, even with lot behind.
