Shattuck is certainly busy, but it is rundown and full of homeless people. It is where you catch BART in Berkeley. I would not view it as an attraction. It is simply a street.

If you like to window shop. This is a great place to come. Loads of shops around and when you need a bite there are lots of choices, most of them low cost. Parking is available mostly at meters. Several attractions are here for diversions...More

Downtown Berkeley has improved and Shattuck Ave. is the center. You'll find theaters here and lots of places to eat, although mostly low-cost to cater to the student crowd. New apartments have been built.

Interesting array of shops, bakeries, coffee houses, and art and crafts stores. Worth the stroll from downtown Berkeley to North Berkeley.

There are many retail shops, eateries, restaurants, bars and a variety of entertainment. Shattuck Avenue is the historic main thoroughfare in the city of Berkeley. It runs North-South and home of the gourmet ghetto.

From Chez panisse to the Cheeseboard to Berkeley bowl. This is a street where you can find lots of shops and restaurants and mingle with the locals. Great street for dining, shopping and just a walk around the city.

I'm not sure. I would go to the website and look at the menus and make that decision.
