This place is a must go and best of berkeley. Every trip to California we have to stop for Cheeseboard Pizza. Freshly Baked and everyday they have their special pizza baked or " pizza of day" had tried all of their pizzas no complaints but excellent taste.

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

One type of pizza per day, but oh man it's so good. Even if you don't like some of the toppings, it can still taste amazing. Just be aware that for some big college weekends (football games, beginning and end of semester, etc) the line for Cheeseboard may be really long and around the corner. If you have the time,...

Much of Berkeley has been done in by the developers. But part of north Berkeley, minus one of the best bookstores remains. And the Cheeseboard is right in the center. One kind of pizza cooked a day. You can eat at the Cheeseboard Pizza next to the Cheeseboard and listen to good live local music (don't forget to drop something... More

The Cheese Board Collective's pizza is just about the best you can get unless you prefer deep dish (then I'd recommend Zachary's on Solano Ave. in Albany or College Ave. in Oakland). The Cheese Board makes only vegetarian pizzas...never with any meat. And they make a single type each day, but most are delectable, even the cauliflower ones. You can... More

There are cities you visit that have iconic eating experiences such as the Carnegie Deli in New York City. Cheeseboard Pizza is one of Berkeley's iconic "gourmet ghetto" eating experiences. You stand in line - usually a long line down the block - to buy your pizza (only one kind on any given day) by the slice, the half-pie, or... More

I couldn't help but stop in here when I saw the LONG line outside on a Sunday morning. It's fun to see all the hustle and bustle in the kitchen itself as one inches forward. Other than a few random tables outside, this is take-out only. I bought coffee, several kinds of breads (baguette pieces, bialys, English muffins, ciabatta rolls,... More

Some of us like the simple but classic pepperoni. Yes, you can get this other places.. but cheeseboard has a better crust. Thanks!
