While downtown Shattck has a bevy of interesting places to eat,see cinema,and live theater it has no real retail and often has the homeless looking for handouts.

Really nothing to recommend it. No reason to frequent unless you are going to the BART station. No signature stores. Spend your time strolling Fourth Street.

Shattuck is what you would expect from a university town. There are a few bookshops, two major cinema theatres, lots of restaurants and bars, drug stores, and one block away are the splendid Berkeley Public Library and the Berkeley Repertory Theater. Plenty of buses and the main BART station in Berkeley (right next to a taxi stand for those who live a distance away from a bus line). Some favorite areas are the so-called Gourmet Ghetto with a wonderful pizza restaurant - the Cheese Board Pizza and its associated cheese store, the classic Chez Panisse restaurant; and I second the support for the great value one dollar ice cream sold by Johns Ice-Cream. Even the panhandlers are a tad above the average!

Everything you could want on this street is there. Lots of food and coffee shops, a $1 ice cream place called John's and it was homemade good. There are movie theaters, drug stores, game stores. What you don't want that is also there are the street people and the homeless. Just part of the street.

Quaint street with ambiance good for folks who want to go for a drink or bite to eat.
Was a little disappointed that there was not more in terms of shopping although my wife did manage to do some damage
