Surrounded by tree-lined hills, views of the San Francisco Bay, and located just a few miles from the shoreline, El Cerrito is a beautiful town in the Bay Area. The neighborhoods in El Cerrito reflect the town’s Mid-century charm and appeal; and although most of the homes look like they were built in the 1940s and 1950s, they have been updated to satisfy modern tastes! The area is rich in music history as well: El Cerrito is the birthplace of John Fogerty and the famous rock band known as Creedence Clearwater Revival.
El Cerrito is one of the best places in the Bay Area to raise a family. With early education schools such as Children’s Garden Montessori plus several great elementary schools, middle schools, and El Cerrito High Schools, your kids will have plenty of great learning opportunities. The community is also ideally located for UC Berkeley students and faculty. A short trip from the El Cerrito del Norte station can have you on campus in 20 minutes.
Whether you love golf, hiking, or several other outdoor activities, El Cerrito has an option for you. Berkeley Country Club has been a staple in the community for nearly 100 years, and its beautiful 18-hole golf course provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Bay Area Bridge. Hikers love Hillside Natural Area; provides over 100 acres of open grasslands, and is a great place to take your dog on a walk. If you prefer to take your dog to a park where they can interact with other furry friends, Point Isabel Dog Park is a great option.
El Cerrito Plaza, located near the intersection of San Pablo Ave and Fairmount Avenue, serves several purposes. First, it is El Cerrito’s premier shopping center; stores include a Lucky supermarket, a CVS, a Verizon store, and several popular fast food restaurants. It also features a BART station which makes commuting to and from San Francisco super convenient.
Locals skip the bland national chains and opt for long standing local burger and dog joints like Big Al’s, Nation’s Giant Burgers (HQ’d in EL C) and Caspers Hot Dogs. Some days feel right out of the 1950’s when residents can enjoy a Nation’s Giant Burger, then head across the street to check out a flick at the art deco Cerrito Theater (built in 1937).
If you’re craving more than just fast food, you will be amazed at the diverse array of local restaurants. Notable restaurants in El Cerrito include:
The Junket: Enjoy a unique fusion of German and British cuisine when you visit this unique deli in El Cerrito.
Larb Thai Food & Tapas: One of the Bay Area’s highest rated Thai restaurants, locals and residents alike enjoy both the food and the atmosphere.El Mono: Savor the flavors of authentic Peruvian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere while gazing at the artwork on the walls.
