Pizza bursting with flavors

Delicious pizza - offer only one choice a day. Wished they would offer a vegetarian and non vegetarian choice. Make sure you eat it there so it's hot and fresh.

Another successful trip to the Cheeseboard. The line out the door, from the moment they open at 4:30 PM until they close at 8pm, tells you everything you need to know. Great for takeout (or dining in, if you're willing to jockey for a table). I always enjoy the live music, especially Kicking the Mule. Pizza is delicious and their... More

If there's anyone who's dissatisfied with the quality or service at the Cheeseboard, I haven't met them yet. The selection is still outstanding, and the attitude of the workers, exceptional. Where else can you try cheese after cheese? Of ask advice about the rinds of two different cheeses and get a knowledgeable answer? If you love cheese - or pizza... More

Had a late lunch at the highly regarded Cheeseboard Pizza. Today was Crimini mushroom...only one choice each day. Folks lined up down the block to get some. Delicious sourdough crust. Lots of cheese! Yummy!

Everything about how cheeseboard is run is amazing. The coop style is something I love to support, and the efficiency with which they serve the one type of pizza every day is pretty amazing. However, after multiple trips there, I feel the pizza is far too greasy/oily for my taste. The combinations are exquisite but I often cannot enjoy them... More

The pizza is great. Lines are long and seating limited so lots of people actually sit out on the meridian. What I like most about the Cheeseboard is the excellent live music. Some great blues and jazz.

Only one flavor a day and always vegetarian. Made with organic and seasonal ingredients in original and delicious combinations. Fabulous cheese. Great sourdough crust. Live music. A true and very yummy berkeley experience

This place has long lines for good reason. There are all kinds of fresh bread and cheese from everywhere. The pizza is very special.

One pizza a day. No deviations from the norm. Extra slice added per order. One type of salad. Jazz bands live in the restaurant. All employees are stockholders. The most Berkeley type of restaurant possible. Everyone gets a trophy. Delicious.

Ok, maybe I am crazy. I was staying nearby here and a friend told me how great it was and I saw the lines of people on the weekend. So one day when the line was not too long I got two slices of the pizza du jour (they only make one special pizza a day I believe). It had... More
