Fourth Street

It was like stumbling upon a hidden treasure cove. I had no clue there was such an arty place in Berkeley. And it was all because I heard of a spectacular brunch place there.

Bette’s Oceanview Diner

I had the Lox scramble. Soft scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, a toasted bagel and home fries (essentially fried potatoes with onions). The bagel was toasted to perfection, just a little crisp around the edges. I thought the potatoes were a tad overdone though.

The German potato pancakes. Rosti. Yum. I stole a bite – fried just right. Crispy on the edges, soft in the center.

Lemon ricotta pancakes. I must say, these were the best out of the three. The pancake just melts in your mouth. A.w.e.s.o.m.e.

The service was pretty good, considering how busy it was. We had a 20min wait during which we just strolled up and down 4th Street.

And then it was to Sketch for ice-cream.

It was tasty, but rather expensive. $4 for a single serving. Hm. And I thought there couldn’t possibly be anything more expensive than Ici. The cone was really crunchy though. I think I’ll save this for rare treats.

It’s right next to Bette’s. We walked up and down twice before finally spotting it.

Happy people.
