Sample Tempting Treats from Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto

Meet your informative guide at a convenient location on Shattuck Avenue in downtown Berkeley — easily accessible from San Francisco or East Bay cities by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) — and embark on your 3-hour walking tour of North Berkeley, colloquially known as the Gourmet Ghetto.

You’ll explore this culinary landscape, home to long-established icons including Chez Panisse and The Cheeseboard Collective, while you discover local hotspots, chat with food purveyors and enjoy a variety of tastings. Learn about Berkeley’s commitment to sustainable practices as you enjoy seasonal, organic and locally grown food.

At Love at First Bite Cupcakery & Bakery, sink your teeth into homemade cupcakes; savor velvety chocolates at Alegio Chocolates; sample crispy potato puffs at Gregoire’s and pizza at The Cheeseboard Pizzeria. Sip tea at Imperial Tea Court, munch on meaty sandwiches at The Local Butcher Shop and slurp homemade soups at SOOP in Epicurious Garden.

Top off your gastronomic tour at Vintage with a wine tasting and set foot inside the original Peet’s Coffee & Tea for a taste of this West Coast institution, before returning to the starting point.
