They bake the most delicious Mexican bread I?ve found this side of the border. That?s what everyone comes here for ? it?s not a restaurant, you can?t sit down and eat anywhere. You just wait for your bread and go. They also have pastries like empanadas and make custom ordered cakes.
PROS: Great bread!
CONS: Crowded at times
I get great, cheap, fast pedicures here for about $15 not including tip. The pedicure is basic, no bells and whistles, but you still get a massage and a cleansing. The salon is not upscale but is very clean and well-lit. The service here is always great; the ladies are super friendly and chatty.
PROS: Affordable, friendly staff
CONS: Not a place for luxury
I didn't expect to find a spa in Berkeley, so I was ecstatic to find this place. It's pretty close to campus, just down Telegraph. Their selection of treatments is impressive and is like the nail spas we have at home in LA! The prices are great and the staff is friendly and professional. Not only that, but the facilities are incredibly clean and sanitary! I'm definitely impressed.
PROS: Good spa services, great facility, clean!
This salon might not look too great, but I love it. I heard this salon was great for bangs, so when I decided to try it, I came here. My stylist was absolutely wonderful ? he was very considerate, articulate, and talented, and he had a lot of great advice. He had tons of experience with bangs, and his recommendations turned out to be perfect.
PROS: Great hairstylist
Lit'l Lizards in Noe Valley is a children?s toy and clothing store and produces its own line of children?s clothing. The clothes here are soft, comfortable, unique, and colorful, fitting babies to small children. I recently purchased a girl?s coat for about $70, with a cute retro black and white print. They also offer sewing classes for both adult and child!
PROS: Gorgeous and unique clothing
I used this florist to create centerpieces for my church, and they produced gorgeous, creative arrangements. They are not inexpensive, but they have tons of talent and will try hard to work with you. They are very convenient to work with too ? they are flexible and timely and will deliver.
PROS: Lovely arrangements, timely
CONS: Not cheap
I found the cutest dress here for my niece ? 100% cotton, pink Lily Pulitzer-like print, very adorable, and not expensive. They carry a wide selection of party dresses for little girls, as well as casual clothing. The saleswomen here were incredibly sweet, friendly and very helpful, but not clingy or pushy.
PROS: Wide selection, affordable
I love this place because they deliver for cheap, and they provide great services. Even when I got chocolate embedded into my cashmere sweater, they came through, and my sweater was perfectly clean and good as new when I got it back. They?re very timely, and the man at the counter I see there most often is very sweet and pleasant.
PROS: Delivery, affordable
The staff here is always so pleasant and friendly, and the prices are pretty affordable. If you?re in a hurry to get your clothes cleaned, the people here are very willing to accommodate you. If you?re not in a hurry, they?re really quick anyway. My clothes usually get done in a few days? time and come out looking good as new.
PROS: Affordable, great staff
CONS: Parking is difficult
My dog loooves this place! It?s right by Oakland Airport, and it?s so much better than the traditional kennel. Dogs get individual rooms, and I even got a training class for my dog while he was there. You can pay $10 to get your dog a session of playtime to make sure he?s getting extra attention while he?s away from home. It?s expensive though ? about $45 a night, and the minimum is seven days. My dog was happy there, but he was happy to come home too.
PROS: Lovely facility, great staff
CONS: Definitely pricey
