Dine at the mystical and sophisticated ambiance of O Chame. True to it's name, this restaurant is indeed, lively and charming. The Japanese cuisine is worth relishing with unique and fantastic dishes and their noodles can't be beat. Pair your meal with a glass or wine or sake.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch or brunch at this neighborhood favorite that was once a bank. The actual vault is now prominently displayed and stores dry goods. The Vault's dining room has high ceilings and brightly lit environs with large windows. The service is down-to-earth. You will find traditional egg and bacon dishes, build-your-own omelettes, a bagel and lox platter, and short stacks. It also serves an array of sandwiches and burgers, and occasionally special entrees in the afternoon like meatloaf, pasta and chicken.
Chaat, the Hindi word for snacks, are the stock-in-trade of this bright blue warehouse on Berkeley's industrial West Side. Every day, two dozen varieties of chaat are chalked up on the whiteboard, including tasty little morsels ranging from vadu and chole to pakoras and samosas. The eatery has been discovered, big time, but the counter service is fast enough to handle the big lunchtime crowds. Insider's tip: on weekends, order the masala dosas, huge lentil pancakes with spiced potato fillings in a thin lentil soup.
The name's a bit misleading. Not only is there no ocean view, but this is not your ordinary diner. Though it has streamlined aluminum and black-and-white tile, and the fare is inspired by diner cuisine, the ingredients are the freshest available and the dishes are prepared with care and imagination. At breakfast, the cooks do wonderful things with the humble buttermilk pancake, and the scrambled eggs and tortilla chips are memorable, as well. At lunch, it is sandwiches and plate specials, which often feature a fresh fish filet. The to-go counter next door offers sandwiches and mini-pizzas.
This spacious, diner-style dining room has green marble tabletops, high ceilings and hanging plants. You will always find parking in the restaurant's own parking lot. The kitchen prepares a variety of dishes, from low-calorie treats to sinful entrees. The breakfast portion of the menu is the highlight; however, the lunch menu is also a strong contender with homemade soups and grilled chicken sandwiches. But the shining stars are the delicious egg dishes dripping in Hollandaise Sauce. Try the Crab and Artichoke Benedict served with a side of perfectly cooked home-style potatoes, topped with a dollop of sour cream.
Fine restaurant connoisseurs from all over the Bay Area frequent this Berkeley hot spot. It is a great place for a romantic or family dinner, or just appetizers at the bar with friends.

The menu is filled with a vast selection of seafood, fish, chicken and pasta entrees. Try the grilled sirloin steak and roasted garlic prawns. The wine list features California selections.
