    One word: “vegetable charcuterie”. OK, it’s two words and evokes five senses, but just order it. - Inspector

    Though not a strictly vegan restaurant (it's got plenty of selections for literally everyone), Gather's vegan "charcuterie" is one of the most imaginative and incredible animal-free dishes in the Bay Read more

    Had a great brunch here, which included their spicy tomato pizza with anchovies. The poached egg with ragu was good, and the pancakes were as well.

    The best thing we had was a bottle of Pinot From #HandleyCellars we brought in. All the dishes we tried were confused and blah, service was terrible and we ended up on a table for two with 3 people.

    The Walnut French Toast for Brunch is prime. Friendly staff and a nice, casual vibe makes for a lovely experience outside of the chaos that is Downtown Berkeley.

    Came for brunch very excited but ultimately was disappointed. Ordered the egg sandwich, which would have been delicious had the eggs not been totally overcooked. Sad brunch fail.

    Not a place you would expect to run into your everyday college student. Definitely caters to an older/alumni crowd. Food was overpriced for what it was. Would explore other options before going back.

    Come after 11:30 to have access to the whole menu other wise it's not worth it. Beware the recycled belt booth TONS of crumbs in there. Don't miss the house made sparkling water
