You are going to love it and maybe decide not to go out of the cottage and the garden for a while. This cottage is in Gourmet Ghetto and is very close to the very famous restaurants, French Café and Cheese Board. You can park your car in the drive way and enjoy walking around Berkeley and even take public transportation to San Francisco or Walnut Creek. If you are interested in healthy eating and you have read Michael Pollan’s book then you might want to go to the Cider butcher shop he goes to and buy some healthy meat and bring it home and cook it. East your food beside the pond and enjoy. When you leave sign the book I have left you and let me know if you enjoyed yourselves.
