They offer ONLY one choice of pizza per day and today was margarita. It was terrific!!! Thin crust, cheesy, lots of fresh tomatoes... More

This is a cute little pizza place that is connected with a phenomenal cheese shop. It's open air with nice outdoor seating. There is a live band playing almost every night. It's not a fancy sit down so it's good for lunch or if you want to grab a quick but fun dinner. Sometimes there is a line out the... More

One excellent item is offered each day. Always vegetarian and always quick. Nice salads and selection of beer. LOVE the people, live music, and philosophy of worker-owned business. Parking can be a challenge. Just find a spot and walk. You will enjoy the pizza enormously. Scenic view if you enjoy people watching.

The Cheeseboard prepares one kind of pizza per day—and it's always delicious. Extraordinary crust, wonderful cheeses, and the freshest vegetables, perfectly seasoned. Very different from chain store pizzas!

Best pizza around--every day a different combination. Fun place to go. People come here from all over the world so great conversations are had in the line. Great live jazz at noon.

This is certainly (one of) my favorite place for pizza in the East Bay! And I *love* eating their pizza, nearly always getting a "half-baked" and finishing it at home. So what's the "but"? Well, a) they only one type of pizza a day, and b) it's always vegetarian. Then again, there's a "but" to the "but" -- who cares?... More

This is a great place to stop for a quick bite with a side of live music! They only serve one pizza style per day, but the combination is always fresh & delicious. I also enjoy their side salad made with fresh, organic greens. The music can be distracting if you are trying to have a conversation, but otherwise enjoyable.

Delicious, fast, healthy and cheap. There really isn't another pizza place in town that even compares. The line is usually out the door and down the block- but the service is so fast that it almost doesn't matter. The venue cant seat that many people. I've seen (just from driving by) that they have added more tables and seats. It... More
