Always a surprise and the ingredients meld together magically. The wait can be long on weekends. Do not park at the Bank of America lot. I received a ticket because the line was longer than I thought. Credit cards are accepted. Eat the pizza as soon as possible while the crust is crisp and the cheese is melt-y.

This is not a hidden treasure. This odd pizzeria is distinguished by offering only one kind of pizza per day. They also have salads and desserts. But the charm of the place is the casual vibe and the good food. It's also reasonably priced. Not much seating, but it's a quick meal and then off to the next thing. Live... More

Cheeseboard only turns out one kind of pizza a day, but they are consistently great! That explains the queue outside, a Gourmet Ghetto tradition. Great ingredients and combinations. Only wish they would add meat occasionally. So successfully a copy cat restaurant, serving the same variety of pizzas, opened in downtown Berkeley (Sliver).

This is probably the best pizza in Berkeley. The Cheeseboard is a collective (owned by the workers) and it is famous for its cheese store next door. The pizza arm of the collective uses cheese from that store, and the combinations can be fabulous - think goat cheese with thinly sliced lemons, for example. There is only ONE kind of... More

A Berkeley insititution. The Cheeseboard is probably the best cheese shop I have ever visited. You'll find the best cheese and have the most enjoyable time here you have ever had at a cheese store, guaranteed. They won't let you buy the cheese until you have tried it. And you can try anything they sell. As for the pizza, it's... More

The Cheeseboard, run by a worker co-op, has wonderful pizza. Each day there is a different kind of pizza, and only one kind per day -- always delicious, although sometimes with very unusual ingredients. The place is very popular and there is usually a line down the block. The indoor seating is limited, but there are spaces outdoors and some... More

With it's line of customers stretched out the door and down the block, this is Berkeley at its Shake Shack best. With the rollicking music, the pizza strikes a chord. It might even be healthy eating as one grabs a slice and a sliver (that non copyrighted extra little bit) or sits at a table with someone you may not... More

Thee's a reason there is a big line outside the shop on most days: the staff know there stuff and try very hard to educate you about their product; try new things etc. They are never in a hurry for you to buy anything ! Ultimate customer centered service attitudes prevail. Worth the trip just to experience that side of... More
