Secret Berkeley
Shhhh.... It's a secret! ;)


The Café at Chez Panisse is located upstairs of the world reknowned Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California opened by Alice Waters.  The Café opened in 1980 to offer an alternative to the set menu served in the Restaurant downstairs. The Café offers a moderately priced à la carte menu for both lunch and dinner. The Café lunch hours are Monday through Saturday 11:30am -3:00pm. Dinner hours are Monday through Thursday at 5pm - 10:30pm, and Friday through Saturday at 5pm -11:30pm. It has an open kitchen along one side of the room with a charcoal grill and a wood burning oven. The style of the menu is inspired by the market; consequently, the menus change every day. Reservations are recommended.  With the restaurant's fame, the cafe has come to embody Waters' original idea for Chez Panisse as a place to hang out with friends.
