Rise and Shine: Berkeley Café News


The counter o’ treats at Paisan (photo from their website).

What the Fork announces ~PAISAN~ has opened for daily breakfast service. Their website mentions a scrambled egg sandwich with Niman Ranch applewood-smoked ham, tomato, and Vermont cheddar, plus muffins, scones, and coffee from Blue Bottle. Oh, and if you join their email list (or drop off a business card), you can score a free Blue Bottle coffee drink. Mon-Sat 8am-11am. 2514 San Pablo Ave. at Blake, Berkeley, 510-649-1031.

A post on Chowhound mentions ~REMEDY COFFEE~ has taken over operation of the café in the Berkeley Art Museum. Further details on Thrillist (beware, the annoying hi-yah sound of their videos will play as soon as you open that page) include eats like frittata sandwiches, and egg, bacon, and cheese breakfast pizzas. 2625 Durant Ave. at Bowditch, Berkeley, 510-548-4366.
