Delicious pizza! You only get one type of pizza to choose from, but that makes for a super fast line! Don't get a slice - get a whole pie and take home the leftovers! You won't regret going to the Cheeseboard Pizza - just make sure you go before 8 pm or they may be closed.

It's weird to go to Paris and always be comparing the bread to the bagettes at cheeseboard. Nevertheless, they make some great breads, cheese rolls, and lots of other great baked goods. You might try their "wolverines", a rye roll filled with rdied apricots and nuts. It's chewy and not too sweet. Oh, yes, they also haver a huge selection of cheese and always give you a taste before you buy. The people that work there always seem to enjoy being there which might be because they are a collective. It's a Berkeley landmark. I always take out of town visitors here.

Cheeseboard makes one pizza a day, and it is always terrific. However, you should be aware that these aren't necessarily your traditional pizzas. They almost never have marinara sauce, and they are always veggie. However they are fantastic of their type, and the salads are very good as well. It has some tables, but it is often not easy to get a seat, and lots of people get to go pizzas. There are often excellent jazz musicians playing.

Delicious food, meeting the neighbors and visitors to the city in line, listening to live music while you wait and while you eat, and delicious, creative combinations for pizza toppings and salads - what more could you want? The line moves quickly, because there is only one choice of pizza each day. Well worth the wait in line, because that, of course, is part of the experience here, where everyone fits in and "belongs". You can also buy the pizza half-baked and take it home to finish - but why would you miss the fun?

One pizza a day. One salad a day. Live music and a line out the door - that's cheeseboard in a nut shell. This is the best pizza in berkeley.
