I drive 30 minutes to shop here: amazing cheese from all over the world. Breads are to die for. Chocolate cake is a must to try. Cookies are amazing. Nice staff.

Freshly baked buns, scones, rolls of all kinds, great cheese selection, a real authentic Berkeley treat. They also own the cheeseboard pizza a couple of doors down (it is a collective), and both places are still fabulous, and improving if possible, after all of these years.

The Cheese Board, or the Berkeley Cheese Collective, is our favorite place to buy cheese in the United States. It does not have the largest array of cheeses we have ever seen. That distinction lies with the restaurant Bon Marche at the Triannon Palace in Versailles, which I have learned to my eternal chagrin, has been turned over to the... More

Great cheeses very reasonably priced, but the crowd is a little overwhelming. And, they don't have a cheese grinder, so my desire for grated Parmesan Reggiano went unsatisfied. But, the Wisconsin Blue Cheese wedge is perfect!

THE CHEESEBOARD COLLECTIVE is a medium-sized market that specializes in cheeses from around the world, and that also sells a wide variety of specialty breads. Regarding the breads, what Cheeseboard sells is surpassed only by the artichoke bread that is made and sold at ARCANGELI GROCERY located in Pescadero, CA. (Arcangeli's artichoke bread, which is sold in a form that... More

Whenever we are on a road trip anywhere near SF/Berkeley, we make sure to stop by for a bread and cheese over-indulgence at the Cheeseboard Collective. The baked goods are simply the best and the cheese tasting/counter experience is sublime. Drop by any time for a true foody experience (just not on Sunday - when they are closed).

High praise indeed. Their cookies....Hello? The shortbread is slammin', and the ginger cookies are just plain, damn sensational.....and I don't like ginger... More
