Fun shopping street

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. Fourth Street has a number of slightly upscale restaurants and cafes, parking (in the lot near Hearst Ave) is generally available, there is a Crate& Barrel, a gardening shop, a few moderately expensive clothing...

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.

We had a wonderful time walking around Fourth Street in and out of shops. There is a nice variety of places you're familiar with like Crate and Barrel and many quaint shops too. There are several eateries as well. I noticed that it was also very dog friendly with welcoming water bowls outside many stores and lots of pooches enjoying... More

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon stroll down Fourth street. It is too bad that nearly every store is a chain, but the vibrant atmosphere makes up for it.

Picture a sunny, leafy street lined with a slightly upscale feel, with a wide-range of fun shops and people relaxing in outdoor patios over coffee or a good meal. The shops sell everything from furniture to lighting to books, clothing and cosmetics. There's excellent food to be had. And a Crate and Barrel outlet to boot. There is parking in... More
