I was skeptical about a pizza joint with only 1 type of pizza per day--but the reviews were compelling and the price seemed more than fair. I got 2 slices, side salad and a soda for about $13. It was quick, relaxing and delicious. Not to mention, the live band was fantastic. After having a beautiful but longish meal at Chez Panisse the night before, I was looking for something simple and great---I found it. No matter how long the line was, it seemed to move swiftly. Kudos to them for executing perfection of a simple concept!

They only have one kind of pizza each day-very fresh and unusual combinations-ever had pizza witth potato??? Believe me DELiCIOUS!! Or corn on your pizza? How about peaches w/gorganzola......all wonderful! And you can buy a "half baked" pizza-take it home and put it in the oven for 5-8minutes and there you -perfect at home. Try it -you'll love it.BTW the cheese shop next door has cheese from around the world-try it -you'll love it too!

The Cheeseboard is a beloved institution in Berkeley. Longstanding, worker owned, good, thin crust pizza of the day sells out early before they close at 8 pm. It's a tad greasy but usually tasty for $20. They sell small salads. There is a small area to eat in where there is music at various times. You can check the website to find out who is playing and when. If weather allows people spill over sit and eat on the grassy median strip on the street. It's in midst of the "gourmet ghetto" in Berkeley. Their store next door has great cheese and breads for sale. They sell various breads, bialy's, scones, muffins, focaccia, and rolls. It's fun to go and check out the experience as well as the pizza of the day. Enjoy.

Ate here with my nephew who highly recommended it. Long line moved quickly and they only serve one choice of pizza each day

Live music plays as you wait in line. Seating inside, outside as we'll as take-out. Very reasonably priced

Cant wait to return.
