Each day, one delicious, inspired pie. There are people in the area who know they would never move away because they couldn't do without Cheeseboard Pizza. We count ourselves among them. Now that there are so many gluten-free folks, they even make one of the best of that option. On top of... read more

Normally we'd never order a pizza without meat, but this classic margherita was great. They make one kind of pizza all day. You can order by the slice or a whole pizza. The line is long but your food is fresh, hot and ready right away. There is live music often, so that was a nice treat for lunch.

One of the tastiest pizzas to be found anywhere. Limited styles of pies but if you are open minded and can stand in line for a bit, maybe the best pizza in Berkeley

Cheeseboard has the best bread in the bay area, and that is saying something. Pizza is better than average. Cheeses are superior or fantastic. I have only taken food out, mostly bread, the simple French baguette being my favorite. There will be a line, but it goes fast most of the time.

Cheese board has the best pizza. Changes each time they make it. Always good ingredients. They serve music with the pizza. Have great ensembles playing. Fun place to hang out on a beautiful day

Fresh, quality ingredients. The pizza is melt in your mouth good and the green sauce to top your pizza with is a must, so if you get it to go, get the sauce to go. When I went, the ingredients that day for the pizza were spinach, kale, butternut squash and goat cheese. I didn't know how amazing those ingredients... More

Who knew I would like a curry potato pizza? Happened to be there on India's Independence Day? Long line that moved pretty fast...tho parking is a pain...better to park further away & walk there. Worth a try & would try again

Both the Cheeseboard pizza and next door bakery and cheese shop are gems. The pizza is fresh, delicious, and the lines are fast as there is only one type of pizza made a day. It is frequently hard to find a seat though. The live music is a plus. The cheese selection at Cheeseboard Collective next door is exceptional and... More

Ok I'm just too darn old to sit and eat my pizza in the median on the ground. Only has one style pizza every day but even if you don't like it you will still love it! Peaches, blue cheese, lemon oil--no thanks but when I ate it I thought I could eat one every day! Just do yourself a... More

The pizza was delish. The line was long, but moved very quickly. Took the pies home to eat because there was no available seating. Recommend the pizza!
