Excellent food - salads are pretty good too. In the evenings there's usually a great atmosphere with live music. I've been going there for 20+ years and never had a bad experience.

Have never seen Cheeseboard without a long queue at least up to the sidewalk often beyond . Just one pizza, probably always vegetarian and delicious, it is collect and go if you like, or to tarry within or outside listening to one or the other bands, usually jazz. A local institution greatly loved and visited, and surely a must for any one visiting this city.

I have been visiting Cheeseboard for over a decade. The pizza is always delicious, fresh, and made from the best ingredients. I love the jazz on the weekends as well. This place has remained among my favorites for years. The line can be intimidating but it moves quickly.

Living in Berkeley, it would be hard not to shop at the Cheeseboard whenever possible. It's an amazing institution of Berkeley. Warning - there are usually lines for their Pizza of the day around 4-6 PM. But, even the line is entertaining!

The shop has cheeses from all over the world, and you get to taste before you buy! The small cafe often has live music at lunch and evening time.

The line was out the door and the place was packed inside (very limited seating) and people were eating outside in various places. You can order 1 slice or half or whole (prices as of November $2.75, $11 and $22 respectively). The line does move relatively fast since there is only one choice of pizza, plus 1 type of salad. It's not the best pizza I have ever had, but it is unique and it is good. The pizza I devoured had sweet potato, swiss chard, carmelized onions, mozzarella, Vacherin cheese, balsamic reduction and parsley.

Next to pizza place is the bakery - scones were very good and the cookies were yummy. The Ginger cookies were the best I have ever had. Double chocolate cookies also good, but didn't care as much for the chocolate chip.

Parking is on street - meters.

Friendly workers in both places!
