This is NOT the real Berkeley. There are a few places to enjoy such as Bette's which is not only real Berkeley, but also real 50's. Now that Book's Inc. has split you might as well head for Walnut Creek and get the super sized version.

Fourth street is both a shopping and eating destination. Relatively easy and free parking and terrific places: Café Rouge, Iyasare, Zut!, etc. Many good shops. Very Berkeley in feel. Good for locals and visitors as well. I live here so I know.

What a neighborhood! Newly developed maybe 20 years ago, it is now a few blocks of lively community and shopping. It is "The Scene". Go there!
