The Cheeseboard Collective is not only the best place to find the best cheeses from all over the world at the best prices, but the bread that emerges crisp from the ovens is some of the best artisanal bread available anywhere. The sourdough culture that pervades the breads (and the pizza crust from the associated Cheeseboard Pizza Collective) makes some of the most flavorful bread around, with the possible exception of a few small wood-fired ovens that are hard to find. It is a raucous place, people take a playing card (instead of a number) to wait their turn at the counter - where one can sample any of the exquisite cheeses on display before choosing a creamy bleu and some olives from the barrel - or one can grab a warm loaf from the rack and get in the express line. The place is almost always busy, six days a week; the employees are the owners, so they set the hours and holidays as well as the happy, bustling atmosphere. Since 1974, the Cheeseboard has been one of the true anchors of Berkeley's famed "Gourmet Ghetto" - Alice Water's world-famous Chez Panisse restaurant is just across the street, and it's not uncommon to see a chef in his or her whites picking up some capers or a special sheep's milk crotin to accompany that evening's fare
i can remember a time going to blondies in Berkeley as a little girl and eating the best pizza in the bay area.but as of yesterday it was a HUGE dissapointment.i recommended me and my partner eat here since they've never been and boy did i regret that.the pizza was as flat as a peice of paper,all my peporoni n cheese was sliding off but the flavor was good.im not sure if there trying to get over on the uc students by giving them less and making them pay more but whatever it is blondies is not what it use to be,good quality pizza
The concept of pieology is to design your own pizza. For a set price ($8.65) you chose your crust, sauce, cheese, meat, and other toppings and then it gets baked in the pizza oven. The pizza is about 11 inches in diameter. More than enough for one person although the crust is thin so you don't fill up on that. They also have a build-your-own-salad.
I love the pizza at North Beach.. I was soo happy to find them in Berkeley.. the pizza is delish.. its ALWAYS SUPER CHEESY and meaty, so please dont ever order extra on anything cause I promise it has enough.. Some of the staff are extremely rude but once u get the pizza... you will probably excuse their behavior.. lol
An incredible variety of what seems like hundreds of cheeses. The most difficult thing is trying to decide which one you want to try. They also sell fresh breads and pastries and have an espresso bar. Well worth a stop.
Now you know what pizza is all about. These guys get it. I had a couple of pies sent over and will never switch. Great great cheese. I'll be ordering again for 100 people before the end of September.
Inexpensive pizza made by the slice. You can get the pre-made slices or made to order which is a bit more. I think it's great considering most pizza joints require you to buy a full pie.
Cheeseboard makes great thin crust pizza. Just one type of pizza is made each day and it's always vegetarian. Check their website for the menu. FYI, their corn pizza is killer!
Had an awesome experience! and one exceptional employee, Trent, at the Telegraph location stood out with his charisma and customer service.
I'm from NY so I'm more than predjudice about..........the slice. they use the best cheese I ever had on the left coast.!!!
