Gourmet Ghetto: NORTH BERKELEY 'Gourmet Ghetto'?The restaurants, boutiques, and galleries along Shattuck Avenue and Vine Street in North Berkeley emphasize unique, artisan-production, and it's bounty of sidewalk cafes, flower stands, and fine food purveyors lend the area a European ambiance.

Telegraph Avenue: TELEGRAPH AVENUE- Historic Telegraph Avenue, adjacent to UC's central Sproul Plaza, is a center for culture, intellectual pursuit through its many independent book stores, and diversity. Telegraph also features world-famous music stores and vintage clothing stores. Some of the city's best ethnic dining is available just a few blocks south of Sproul Plaza right on Telegraph.

Why Ada O. chose Berkeley

Location, location, location!. Arguably one of the best places to live--anywhere. This neighborhood of tree-lined streets north of the UC Berkeley campus is defined by Shattuck Avenue and its wealth of great restaurants. The world-renowned Chez Panisse restaurant anchors the neighborhood, as does the wildly popular Cheese Board Pizza and the original Peet's Coffee. Walk to shops, restaurants, schools, and bus stops. Downtown Berkeley, with its art, film, theater, and music district is 15 minutes or less south of the Gourmet Ghetto by foot. Dinner at Chez Panisse, a concert at Freight & Salvage, and a short walk back home--life doesn’t get much better than this! . University of California at Berkeley is one block from the Oxford Apartments. Bart station about 10 minutes walk.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is ideally situated in the desirable Northside neighborhood. Step outside and you're a short walk from UCB, the Gourmet Ghetto, shopping and Downtown Berkeley BART. It's a pleasant walking neighborhood with eye-catching architecture, a rolling landscape, and well-kept gardens. According to www.walkscore.com the walk score is 93 (Walkers Paradise) with a 61 Good Transit score, and a 90 biker's paradise score.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nicely appointed apartment, stylishly decorated. Cozy, old fashion apartment on upper floor; great views of the bay. Kitchen had high-quality cook ware; onsite laundry, shared patio in cute yard. Situated in lovely, safe, quiet neighborhood 3-blocks from UC Berkeley campus, walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, parks, Bart, etc.

"Absolutely, I would recommend this accommodation to my best friend!"

It had a lot of character and charm. It was close to grocery stores and farmers markets.

  • 4 of 5

It was clean and had lots of light. All the conveniences of being away from home. Loved being able to experience the atmosphere of the "Gourmet Ghetto" with the locals.
