Fourth Street is a destination place. Several blocks long with superb shops, art galleries, specialty groceries, wonderful and varied restaurants, including Betty's Diner for breakfast tradition or for lunch amazing. For locals and out-of-towners it's a must!

Several blocks of upscale, eclectic small and medium shops. A Peet's coffee where people and their dogs mostly sit outside when the weather permits.

Good places to eat, interesting shops, did I mention the food at Bette's Ocean View and the coffee at Peet's and oysters at Cafe Rouge? Or the fine Japanese silks and gifts, to the travel items, and the high quality gardening supplies, furniture, leather goods, kitchen ware, wine shop...anyway they can be found on 4th Street with fairly easy parking...

Crate & Barrell Outlet, CB2 and a couple upscale boutiques and restaurants. North Face and Royal Robbins outlets less than a mile away. It's different than the funky Berkeley closer to Telegraph, but there's plenty of funky stores and restaurants closer to campus if that's what you want and I mean funky in a good kind of way.

Highlights we enjoyed were Bette's Diner (and its bakery right next door) and a fresh Mexican food place called Tacubaya.

Once you get the parking puzzle solved, it is a great place to visit. The restaurants are good, the shops interesting. There is public parking available--you just need patience and knowledge where to find it.

Came to eat dinner on Fourth Street. Found the area pleasantly quiet and easy to navigate. So much nicer then Downtown Berkeley! Fun 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.
