Greasy spoon just isn't a category that abounds in Berkeley.
There are killer breakfast places though.
Bette's Oceanview Diner does an herb omelet I would challenge anyone to beat.
(I'm still working on replicating it at home and failing sadly.)
Or their California breakfast — Canadian bacon, English muffin, poached eggs and a light house-made Hollandaise sauce, with home fries to die for.
Or souffle-like apple pancakes with real maple syrup.
They do lunches too.
Sauteed fresh fish of some kind usually.
And milk shakes that are ice cream based.
But it still isn't a greasy spoon.
It's really clean, and not open 24 hours either.
But I do love it.
