Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Perfect place for toys and books for all ages A great range of classic and new products that cover all interests and abilities. This is a treasure chest for playthings that are well worthwhile. Easy to find and park and browse to locate that special gift for every child (and adult) on your list. A great store.
I hope I,m in the right place, or was. I lived on Piedmont Ave while attending CCAC (Now CCa), in Oakland, and my room-mate & I wandered off and found ourselves in this beautiful Garden of roses. We were looking for Mary B. Best's Ice cream 'hideaway'. We -being art students-were 'lost' for hours. What a wonderful way to lose the day. I believe we tried to find it several more times, only to be successful once. This was in 1978 or 1979, so perhaps we were sniffing too much 'rose dust'. I hope it was real, as this 'roasis' was just a few blocks from several major roadways. One our best college memories!
My grandmother passed away a long time ago... but my family and I swear that on Sunday's SOUL'S somehow wakes her from the Grave to cook... SOUL'S is a wonderful place to eat... Awesome food, Great Service and just as SoulFul as Sexual Chocolate...
Make sure you have had nothing before going to the Sunday Brunch. it's pure Gluttony. They have large tables and Chairs that make you feel comfy too... I like that. It's about $20 for the all you can eat sunday brunch... it's SOOOO worth it!!!
This may be the best donut that I've ever eaten. This cute shop, demurely situated between a falafal shop and a junk store, and conveniently at the mouth of a 19th St Bart station entrance, keeps me always wanting another. Firstly, the donut I can only describe as "cake" but it doesn't leave that heavy, "why did I just eat that" feeling in your stomach. It only leaves you wanting more! A sucker for chocolate, the first donut I had was the chocolate glaze. Unlike the Krispy Kreme, or Dunkin' style glaze, Donut Savant has a thick, Julia Child-style dark chocolate ganache spread atop each cake donut. It is unreal how delicious it is! The other styles and flavors I have tried are similarly delicious. I can also attest to the delightfulness of the seasonal pumpkin donut.
Friendly and chic... not often do those two qualities share common ground, but at E iWEAR, it's different. Jennifer and Ernst are super sweet and the selection of styles is amazing. Best of all, none of the frames come from the global eye-wear giant that dictates prices and puts small guys out of business. All the frames at E iWEAR come from small manufactures, with one of them being just a few miles away in Hayward, CA. I highly recommend them!
I attended the first of these discussions a couple of weeks ago. It was very interesting.
The Berkeley Rose Garden is one of the most visited sites in Berkeley and not to be missed any time of the year. The event promises to be one of the most gratifying and fun filled event of the year. Do not miss it.
I took my boy friend and picked up some lingerie. They also have stockings and toys. It was such a refreshing experience, the store has a contempo style and everything they sale is current. They have lingerie that I haven't seen anywhere else.
To have been in Oakland all these years and still be here standing tall. Says a lot about the longevity of a good time in the East Bay! Under rated! Should not be over looked! :-o

Best dive in the East Bay hands down!
What you didn't tell readers is that the truck in the back has great seafood tacos and ceviche at low prices. Otherwise the menu is the same.
And if you want more radishes, just ask.
I enjoy the variety of activities for any schedule. If you want to tone up, lose weight or just be healthy, this is the place to come. It's a little expensive, but there are scholarship programs, etc the can help defray the costs. The volunteers and staff are extremely friendly, very helpful, and eager to please. The YMCA Hilltop is the place to be!
The Dragon Rouge Vietnamese Bistro is Outstanding. Great atmosphere with a great view of the Estuary and the Park Street Bridge, as it enters Alameda. The menu is fairly small in items but giant in its' adventures of flavors and beautifully presented Vietnamese dishes. The staff is very professional yet friendly. From the Greeters, and the Runners, to the Servers, you always feel welcome and part of the family. The co-owners, Dan and Jimmy, are always around to answer questions or extend their greetings and best wishes. A full bar compliments this wonderful experience.
Clean, well lit, friendly and warm (must be the fireplace). Best open mic in the East Bay because it is a songwriter's open mic (must play at least one original to perform at all).
You must go see this ! A rare chance !
I had a great time. The music has a nice old school back in the day Silks feel. I highly recommend checking out Body Language Thursday Nights at Lukas!
This is the best breakfast place in Oakland. If not on the planet.
