This year, the Best of Berkeley winners list is made up of standard Telegraph haunts, a few Northside sleepers and even the occasional out-of-left-field pick. We agree with some results, disagree with others, but most of all are glad to know that so many local businesses are explored and appreciated. Who knew so many love Love at First Bite? Or find Sufficient Grounds, well, more than sufficient? And, even better, who knew so many actually trek down to Ashby and Shattuck to rent at Reel and buy at the Bowl? We’re beaming with pride.
We hope you continue to comb our city for more diamonds in the rough—they could be right outside the dorms, they could be a few miles away, but either way they’re meant to be tried at least once.
