Dining and Shopping

Just footsteps from our rich academic community is the Shattuck Avenue “Gourmet Ghetto” where Alice Waters created the famous Chez Panisse­­® restaurant. An eclectic mix of other Zagat-rated restaurants and bars, cozy cafes, galleries, bookshops, and boutiques awaits you in downtown Berkeley.

All this, minutes from the culture and color of downtown San Francisco and an hour from the world-renowned wineries of Napa and Sonoma Valleys to the north and the Santa Cruz Mountains to the South.

Hikers, nature lovers, and contemplatives alike will find tranquility and wonder along more than 1,100 miles of trails in the 65 regional parks just beyond Easton Hall Conference Center.
