This is a good place to go if you're in a hurry. They do things fast--copies and printing or passport photos. They've also got a selection of textured and colored papers priced per sheet if you need to run off a couple resumes. Computer/Internet access is $5 for 15 minutes. A good alternative to more crowded establishments like Kinkos.
Ledger Liquor seems to be a liquor shack where the owner/employees know and care about their merchandise. Though they're not someliers, they can make wine recommendations. Can your corner store do that? They stock some pretty unusual stuff too, in terms of wine and hard liquor. Also has a small parking lot and easy street parking nearby.
The basement level of Futura is called T-Shirt Orgy. This is probably because the entirety of a pretty large room is filled almost exclusively with T-shirts. Band shirts, slogan shirts, ironic shirts, requisite ringers for the college kids, etc. Be warned, much like the best-selling pot leaf T-shirt, the prices--around $18 a shirt--are a little high.
Lanesplitters serves up piping hot slices just the way you want them. They offer some prefab slice styles like The Herbivore and The Carnivore, but have an extensive array of vegetable and meat options with which you can customize. Weekly specials can get you a couple slices and a drink or a slice and a salad for a few bucks. Beer on tap too.
Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe is living up to its name with crowds spilling out the doors on weekends and lunch hours. Decor is retro hip/arty. Serves: breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and drinks, with breakfasts being particularly good. Now open until 1AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Bonus points for doing a play on words with their ska-themed specials: Rudy's "A Message toYou: Specials!"
When this place first appeared on the scene, I was skeptical that it would find its market. Now, years later, Bacheeso never fails to generate a crowd for its weekend brunch buffet. Weekday lunchtime diners are treated to the ample buffet or a selection of freshly made sandwiches from their menu. Sometimes food can be a bit on the oily side, but that's not always a negative. Try their signature chicken basil sandwich.
This little unassuming shop next to the post office makes killer sandwiches at a few bucks less than the more popular nearby sandwich shops. They also stock a dazzling array of cheeses, nuts, teas, and foreign snacks. You could buy a big carton of imported chocolate chip cookies there for $2.99 if you were so disposed. Good prices on most stuff and easy parking nearby on the street or briefly in the post office lot.
Directly off Telegraph Avenue is Bancroft Clothing Company. It's in essence a department store full of remainders and discount clothing geared toward the college-age connoisseur. Lots of cargo pants, jeans, backpacks, hats, sneakers, sweatshirt, etc. Fair prices and decent staff help. Park in the Durant lot or plan to street park far away.
Askew grills chicken, pork, beef, lamb, tofu, and vegetables and serves them on skewers over your choice of starch or salad. It's the perfect menu for very picky eaters because you can choose the combination, for instance a spinach salad or garlic mashed potatoes. Portions are large and the wait isn't too bad depending when you are dining.
