A new affordable housing project for seniors, on land at Oxford and Cedar streets donated by — and next to — All Souls Episcopal Parish, won unanimous approval Thursday night from Berkeley's zoning board.
The Oxford Street parklet, which spans the entrances to four restaurants including East Bay Spice Company and Cinnaholic, is downtown's first.
A woman whose car got locked inside a Berkeley parking garage, and accepted an offer of a place to sleep from a man she knew, woke up in the morning to find him raping her, according to police.
Two years after a fire closed down popular downtown Berkeley restaurant Great China, they're back: bigger and, the owners say, even better.
Picture this: a punk-rock, pin-up style sweet-treats store that aims to break the stereotype that vegan food tastes like cardboard. That’s the concept behind Cinnaholic which will open its first store this summer in Berkeley.
