Tips

  • This is not a bowling alley
  • Why is it called Berkeley Bowl? When I first shopped at Berkeley Bowl, they were at 2777 Shattuck Avenue ... a converted Bowling Alley! That's now Any Mountain sporting goods (nice deco facade too!)
  • Best selection of produce at any grocery store I've been to.
  • Fresh Produce
  • Don't go here if you're in a bad mood. It's crowded and people can get on your nerves with the carts and baby strollers. the parking is difficult and street parking is now metered. never the less, i l
  • Be courteous. It's crowded and some aisles are narrow. A smile and an "Excuse me." go a long way.
  • Cheapest produce in the east bay! I refuse to go anywhere else.
  • More freaks and people on drugs here than even Phoenix airport
  • Redesigned produce section. More spacious and ease of selection.
  • Agave nectar gummy bears.
  • Great place to find unique organic foods!
  • Go to the produce aisle. Freely ogle fruit and vegetables on display. Treat fellow shoppers with slightly more care and reticence. Get burrito with chips to go.
  • All kinda of local strawberries during summer.
  • The lunch items are delicious and well priced! A burrito for $6, a pizza slice for $3, or a massive plate of Chinese food for $8. Plus, a kombucha bar on tap to try the latest flavors.
  • the hidden gem is on-site geta sushi: onigiri, tonkatsu, and nigiri.
  • The ice cream that's just "Berkeley Bowl" branded is amazing!
  • Parking lot is usually insane.
  • It's really hard to beat the produce, meat, fish, and cheese selections. Excellent ethnic staples and bulk sections too. Good prices. Heavily trafficked by the patchouli set.
  • Go to the bulk section and find some great deals on dried fruit, grains, and so much more.
  • My favorite grocery store in the Bay. I miss it constantly. Predates Whole Foods; so named because it's located in an old bowling alley. Insanely cheap, plentiful produce. Other items are $$ though.
