Saul's Restaurant & Deli
This long-standing Berkeley deli has been serving excellent, comforting Jewish staples since 1986. The high-ceilinged space is packed with enough tables to fit your entire extended family, and deli cases stocked with an impressive roster of baked things, like hamantaschen, cake slices, and black and white cookies. Slide into a red diner-style booth, and feast on hearty chicken schnitzel, reubens, and a solid matzo ball soup. And know it’s legally required to order a whole bag of housemade hand-rolled bagels. They’re hefty stunners well-coated in everything seasoning, poppy seeds, and sesame.
