BERKELEY Restaurants

  1346 Martin Luther King Jr. Way/Rose St.  This popular restaurant’s forte is good food made from scratch using basic ingredients:  The lean ground chuck used for hamburgers is ground on the premises; soup is made fresh; blue cheese salad dressing is made with the real stuff; robust Peet’s coffee is freshly ground and served with heavy whipping cream.  The famous hamburger is served on a housemade wheat or white bun, and just-right milkshakes--the olallieberry is outstanding--are served in the metal mixing canister.  For dessert, it’s impossible to go wrong with a slice of the puffy apple pie the restaurant is named for, but the chocolate velvet and lemon meringue pies are also delicious.  Breakfast features fresh-squeezed orange juice, crisp waffles served with pure Vermont maple syrup, omelettes, buckwheat or whole-wheat pancakes, and freshly baked pastries (don’t miss their famous cheese puff).
