Berkeley- Jupiter Restaurant, Games of Berkeley, Peet's Coffee, and a movie

Jupiter(2181 Shattuck Avenue) is a lively restaurant in downtown Berkeley.  Its character filled interior has pressed tin walls and huge lighting fixtures.  There's also a beautiful courtyard out back with trees and a fountain.  It's the perfect place to sink your teeth into a delicious slice of pepperoni pizza as you enjoy the chatter of the professors and students from the university.

Another place to check out is the Games of Berkeley(2151 Shattuck Avenue), which has a great selection of old fashioned boardgames, wargames, chess sets, puzzles, and much more.  It's a throwback to the old days before computers, which is what makes it so cool.  They even conduct wargames in a downstairs venue sometimes.

Peet's Coffee and Tea(2255 Shattuck Avenue) is also a fun place visit. Just order a mocha with whipping cream and a coffee cake, and enjoy watching the world go by.

And if you like theaters that play foreign and hard to find movies, you can't do much better than the nearby Shattuck Cinema(2230 Shattuck Avenue) and California Theater(2113 Kittredge Street).  Now let the show begin!
