They only offer one pizza flavour per day and that pizza will be done amazingly well. My friend informs me that the toppings are always vegaterian, although he raves about their pizzas despite being a dedicated carnivore. Definitely worth the queue but would recommend getting there early. They sell by the slice. We had half a pizza (fresh corn, pasilla... More

It is no secret to people living in the Bay Area that The Cheeseboard is a terrific cheese store with a well earned reputation of having a terrific selection of cheese from throughout the world and a highly knowledgeable staff. Further, they make great specialty pizzas, one variety per day.

The pizza is great but a little bit oily. The taste is very nice. The outdoor seats are very good under the sunshine.

excellent selection of cheeses and homemade baked goods - top notch. We've been coming for pastries, breads, pizzas, cheeses, spreads for years. The folks have been kind enough to share enough of their sourdough starter that we were able to get ours running at home based on the cheeseboard's

We had to come here to see if the reviews were true..... they are. It's amazing! The pizza was so so good, inventive and flavorful. The fresh bread and cheese next door are fantastic as well. The live jazz is super fun too. Go here, you won't regret it!

I doubt it. The pizza continues to be imaginative and delicious, the the atmosphere still enjoyable with live music and outdoor seating. Any rumors about closing down should be ignored. This place still rocks!

This place is worth a visit both for the pizza and the live music... they make only one kind of pizza a day, we really enjoyed it and were given much more than the half a pizza we'd ordered... especially enjoyed the music and the atmosphere..

Who could possibly like the pizza here? Perhaps people who don't know what good pizza tastes like! No New Yorker should ever eat here. Stood in line for 15 minutes for bad pizza. Feeling like a fool. Whole tomatoes including the skin used as topping, giving a sour taste and strange mouthfeel. Inadequate seasoning and served cold. No choice but... More

Wonderful pizza and great bakery! Located on Shattuck in the heart of Bear country. It is all good and just down the street is Phil's coffee. Can't get much better than that.

I was in the area for a brief business trip after 15 years of quasi-absence and visited the Cheeseboard again. It's as fabulous as ever, as Berkeley as you can get, and simply beautiful. Needs no further explanation, this is absolutely one of the most Berkely places that has a special place in my mind for ever.

Thank Tom_B_Paris
