The best pizza anywhere

Cheeseboard is a Berkeley institution. They only have one flavor a day, always vegetarian, always the same price, always excellent. We are regulars and have never had a bad pizza. Don't let the long lines outside discourage you. Since there are no choices the line goes fast!

One choice per day. Always fresh and hot with locally sourced ingredients (except the cheese--which can be from anywhere in the world where great cheese is made). Nice big salads that won't break the bank. Often a long line that usually moves at a decent pace. Live music. What else could one want? Oh yeah... Decent glass of wine for... More

I like CP's pizzas. Though it's always vegetarian, there is no lack of flavor. Most of the time, the slices are fresh out of the oven. There is usually a line out of the door, but it moves pretty quickly.

We were walking past this restaurant during lunch and decided to try it when we saw the long line of people waiting to get served. I was worried about the fact that you don't get to choose a pizza topping & the combination of asparagus & Orange on a pizza had me doubting our decision. But what we had was... More

I left the Bay Area ten years ago and happened to be back there for a short visit recently. Recalling the wonderful pizza I used to get at the Cheeseboard, I decided to return there for lunch. It was better than ever! The pizza of the day was superb, but I'd guess that this would have been the case any... More

A Berkeley institution, Cheeseboard never fails to meet high standards for tasty morsels delivered in typical Berkeley fashion.

I was in Berkeley for work and decided to walk over to Cheeseboard on the recommendation from some friends back home. Definitely worth it. I was a little worried when I saw the line outside, but because they only serve one type of pizza every day the line moves quickly. I like the simplicity... if you like what they are... More

Amazing unusual pizza! If you want salami or pepperoni pizza this is not the place for you to go.The Cheeseboard does one kind of pizza per day-and it is unusual seasonal vegetarian ingredients. Starting with many kinds of cheese and adding things like asparagus or even peaches they have fabulous combinations that we would ordinarily not consider as pizza.The crust... More

Always a surprise and the ingredients meld together magically. The wait can be long on weekends. Do not park at the Bank of America lot. I received a ticket because the line was longer than I thought. Credit cards are accepted. Eat the pizza as soon as possible while the crust is crisp and the cheese is melt-y.
