The Cheeseboard is not just awesome pizza sold by the slice of the whole pie, it is a worker-owned co-op in the heart of Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto. even if you think you prefer pizza with me, trust me, you wanna do the Cheeseboard. They only serve one choice of pizza daily, you buy by slice or pie. If you order a slice, they always add a small extra slide that always feels special even tho you know it is built into the pricing, which is quite modest, imho.
Don't be intimidated by long lines. The lines move very fast cause they are a smooth production line of just the one pizza of the day. The pizza flow steadily, the people move through the line.
And many evenings, small bands perform, typically small jazz groups but not always jazz, adding greatly to the ambiance.
This is a Berkeley institution and you can't really say you've done Berkeley until you do the Cheeseboard. Maybe eat on the grass in the middle of the street -- it is illegal but everyone does it and on a good day, it feels good to sit in that grass and eat pizza (ignoring the passing gas fumes, I guess!). Me? I sit on chairs or take it home but if I were still a young'un I'd sit on the middle boulevard grass.
