Great selection of cheeses and the best thin crust pizza ever! Enjoy a slice and live music on a sunny day in Berkeley. The best!

My wife and I ate here twice on our vacation to Berkeley. Would go back again anytime! Fantastic pizza and wonderful live music.

Unique Berkeley experience...the pizza is one kind each day (check on line for week's offerings); excellent cornmeal, thin crust. All veggie. Great combos. Jazz music bands playing inside; long line moves fast. Half bakes available for take home next door at Cheese Board. Do the Berkeley experience: Sunny day, grab slices or a pie and sit on the grass in... More

Cheeseboard Pizza (and it's cheese and bread shop two doors down) is a quintessential Berkeley experience. The business is a worker owned collection, a foodie pizza place, a gathering of folks eating at tables, benches and the traffic median while listening to local jazz musicians. On a sunny day, life doesn't get much sweeter. (On that note, Masse's Bakery across... More

Thin crust, always vegetarian toppings, no sauce, divine. Standing in line to buy pizza is part of the Berkeley experience. Forget the salad. Buy fully baked or half-baked. And don't feel bad if you eat too much because it is so delicious!

Only one flavor per day, your choices are: slice, whole or half, fully baked or half-baked. (OK salads and beverages.) Always vegetarian, often with interesting and unexpected ingredients. Not your red sauce pizza ever. For favorite flavors we take several half-bakes home and put them in the freezer for future enjoyment. No seating to speak of, no table service --... More

Fresh organic vegetarian pizza (one kind) offered daily. Be prepared for non-traditional ingredients. Time it right for live jazz.

First off this is a worker coop so even if the pizza was mediocre I'd still frequent the place. The pizza is anything but mediocre and can be bought half-baked to finish off in the oven at home. The line is part of the social experience and moves fast. Their cheese selection next door is excellent if a bit pricey,... More

I had heard about this pizza and expected it to be good, but WOW! The pizza of the day (which I ordered) included mushrooms and arugula lightly tossed in a lemon dressing that we also had on our salad. The salad had walnuts and finely chopped asparagus. This was the best meal I had in Berkeley and that is saying... More

Big line but it goes fast. Nice pizza and a salad. nice music. It all works. I did not see any options on the pizza, I think everyone gets the pizza of the day but it was good. It is a great place to sit and watch people, discuss poetry and eat.
