Sophie suggested 4 Th Street in Berkeley. She always knows were to go. She never disappoints. What a wonderful spot. Tree lined streets, outdoor cafes and shops galore.
We started with Lunch at Cafe Rouge. Great place with a wonderful causal atmosphere and great food.
|Preparing oysters and other seafood treats.|
|My head was spinning. So many choices. On the right are all different types of freshly made ravioli. Up above....all kinds of house made pates. STOP!!!!!|
|All house made pastas.|
Hum....and for dessert:
|All I can see are the pink and green Princess cakes. My favorite. Have you had one? If, not. Get one ASAP. Instead of fondant, it's marzipan.|
|La Mere Pollard, in case you can't make it to Mont. St. Michel over the weekend.|
4 Th street is amazing. Such a great feel. Laid back, casual, and relaxed. Everyone shopping and strolling about. The shops are fantastic. You can visit Sur La Table, The Crate and Barrel Outlet, The Garden Shop, Spas, etc.
|Wine shop outside of The Pasta Shop (The Market at Cafe Rouge)|
|The entrance to Cafe Rouge|
|Just at the end of this street in front of Peets Coffee House....there was live music adding to the great atmosphere.|
|The Garden Shop. Unique high end garden decorations. Amazing things.|
|Inside the Garden Shop...gorgeous colors.|
|Zuti Bistro. All open air, looked great.|
|Beautiful sunny day on 4 Th Street, Berkeley.|
