So happy to find this place right in "downtown" Berkeley. The salads, soup, sandwiches, and pizzas are great. The bread is excellent as are the morning pastries. A welcoming staff, clean and comfortable dining area are most welcome here, right by the university.

How hard is it to do a good latte? Apparently diabolically hard but the barista at Piq served up a winner. Combined with a cannolo - perfetto!
