Neighborhood Gallery

1317 Hopkins Street

Centered on Hopkins Street at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, this quiet, relaxed residential community consists of charming bungalows, California Craftsman homes, and English Tudors. Indian Rock, the largest example of the Northbrae rhyolite outcroppings in the neighborhood, is popular with climbers honing their skills.

Nearby green spaces include three-acre Cedar-Rose Park and Terrace Park. For those working on home horticulture projects, Berkeley Horticultural Nursery on McGee Avenue and Westbrae Nursery on Gilman Street offer advice, seeds, plants, and gardening tools.
Northbrae’s two-block long retail district may be small, but it is crammed with gourmet-food purveyors. It's possible to shop here like a European, going from store to store, purchasing everything you need for the week's dinner.

Monterey Market (an institution for more than 50 years), Monterey Fish Market, Magnani Poultry, and Hopkins Street Bakery make Northbrae into a mecca for food lovers. Outdoor cafe Espresso Roma offers the opportunity to enjoy a latte in the glorious weather.

Northbrae is within walking distance to the North Berkeley BART and the North Branch of the Berkeley Public Library. Designed by noted Bay Area architect Julia Morgan in the early 20th century, the latter building is one of the most stunning civic structures in Berkeley.
