We first opened in 1977 as a small neighborhood market in a converted bowling alley, hence the name Berkeley Bowl. In 1999, we moved into a renovated former Safeway site at 2020 Oregon Street, which gave us the ability to truly expand all areas of our growing business.
In June of 2009, our second store, Berkeley Bowl West, opened in a new modern building at 920 Heinz Avenue. Berkeley Bowl West has a café which features Stumptown coffee as well as a juice bar, and an ever-expanding menu of breakfast offerings, seasonal salads, sandwiches, and entrees.
Berkeley Bowl West also features expanded parking areas, including an underground parking lot below the main building.
