GF options. Yummy crepes, boutiques nearby. The staff is a little gruff, because they are always slammed. Get there early on weekends.

GF pizza & beer ON TAP. Surely they are a restaurant after my own heart. Beautiful outdoor seating in back. If it's your b-day the waiter will challenge you to a pint chugging contest. Everyone wins!

GF Bakery. I recommend the breakfast sandwich. If you like locks, it can't be beat. Reasonably priced. Great staff, even when they're busy.

They don't sell alcohol or cigarettes, but this little corner store has heart and lots of unique options. They offer many healthy snack alternatives along with the usual. Very nice staff.

Delicious winery! It's a little out of the way from Berkeley without a car, but SO worth the trip. Located right on the water, classy food, nice staff, can't say enough good things about the wine! A+

Arts & Culture

Some Saturdays they host stand-up comedy nights. These are BYOB, free and generally pretty good. Their shows are advertised on sf.funcheap.com (east bay), which is a great resource for fun.
