Eater SF | Where to Eat and Drink in Rockridge
Blending the funkiness and diversity of Oakland with the charm and energy of Berkeley, Rockridge is a picturesque and vibrant neighborhood that represents a lot of the East Bay’s best qualities. Built up in the 1920-50s with (now multimillion dollar) charming bungalows and cottages for those seeking a quieter alternative to the city, it’s become one of the most bustling and desirable districts on the sunny side of the bay.
South of Berkeley, west of the Oakland hills, and generally east of Telegraph Avenue, take a stroll down the area’s main drag, College Avenue, and pop into local bookstores, markets, coffee houses, specialty shops, and eateries. The food scene here, in particular, has made the neighborhood a dining destination worthy of a BART ride from San Francisco.
