“Great walk....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Visit the Belgium beer bar, around old town. The Indian food is out of this world. Would eat there everyday if we could.

“Nice small pocket of architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

This is a small pocket of Oakland adjacent to downtown, Chinatown and the Jack London Square area. The street has been gentrified and there are some interesting shops in this section. Please note; this is a relatively small number of blocks; not an extensive area.
