The Cheese Board Round-Up - Berkeley, CA

Shattuck at Vine Street
Berkeley, CA 94709
Website

Technically, it's called "The Cheese Board Collective" or just "The Cheese Board," but EVERYONE calls it "Cheese Board." Basically there's a pizza restaurant right next to their cheese & bakery business (scroll down for pizza pics). Line out the door. One type of pizza each day (several toppings). Always vegetarian but DELICIOUS (Menu here).

If you've lived in Berkeley, you have heard of Cheese Board and you love it. Every few weeks or months you have to go eat pizza and/or a baked item.

Cheese Board is fast, delicious, and unique (e.g., they're a worker-owned and operated business and they have interesting things like Berkeley buns, which you shall see below).

Anyway, I was talking about pizza with Michelle and Chris tonight after eating Mexican food (lol), and I suddenly thought about how amazing Cheese Board in Berkeley is. Why it took so long for me to think of it...who knows. Anyway, here is a round-up of Cheese Board things (pictures are from around 2008). Click the name of each item to see a full post.

Berkeley Bun - Description here
(Mystery cheeses, curry powder, black pepper, onions, etc.
This totally summed up Berkeley: Odd but unique, fun, and somehow it works!)


Chocolate Thing - Basically a slightly sweet bun with chocolate chunks. GOOD! See ingredients here


 




Pecan roll - Aahhhh DELICIOUS! Not overly sweet either! Another favorite.



Corn & Cherry Scone: Sounds odd but it's corn meal--not corn. YUM!


Challah

And OF COURSE...the pizza! They taste much more delicious than these pictures show.

Pizza 1: Red peppers and ahh I wish I had written down the rest of the ingredients.

Pizza 2: Cremini, Shitake & Chanterelle Mushrooms, Onions, Mozzarella Cheese, French Goat Cheese, Garlic Olive Oil, Fresh Herbs.
