Suggestions on cafes and restaurants in North Berkeley/berkeley Hills area

Thanks very much to all the posters so far. Those comments and suggestions are really very helpful! And we will be sure to post our own comments and suggestions. BTW - most aussies back home buy their pizzas from restaurants that are NOT part of the big chains. What I fear we will miss (as we live in melbourne, Victoria) is the plentyful availability of BYo (Bring Your Own bottle) restaurants which can make consuming wine with food so much cheaper. But maybe that custom is invading SF?

Suggestions on cafes and restaurants in North Berkeley/berkeley Hills area

Just joined Chowhound so I'm not too sure if this kind of general post and query is encouraged. But here goes. We're Australians who like good food and wine will be spending six months at CAL and will be living in Santa Barbara Rd near Marin Avenue. I don't know this area at all. Any suggestions on good places to eat within reasonable walking distance or that can be reached by bus in 10-15 minutes? We will be trying to avoid driving (but may not be successful!). We'll be grateful for any help and tips.
