Bette’s Oceanview Diner

Perfect For: Brunch Impressing Out of Towners

Between the Paperchase and the Crate and Barrel on 4th Street in West Berkeley is a stretch of town that feels like some kind of utopian experiment. You’ll find knick-knack shops, boutiques, and sidewalk cafes, all filled with happy people. And no matter when you visit, it’s always sunny. Where do people eat breakfast in this dream bubble of a world? Bette’s. The interior looks like Martha Stewart threw a diner-themed party in a beach cottage, so naturally the small space maintains a 45-minute wait right up until it closes at 3pm (the only glitch in 4th Street’s matrix: wait times). If you can be patient, though, you should - the food at Bette’s is stellar across the board, and they have plenty of great breakfast cocktails, too.
