Sparky's Piedmont Ave vs Barney's

Yes I believe it is related to the Redwood Rd Sparky's. The menus are similar. I have always liked the teriyaki chicken at Sparky's, and it's available at both places. Also, I think I recognize one of the counter people on Piedmont from the Redwood place.

Berkeley brunch

I vote for Mama's Royal Cafe in Oakland. Then you could call it the Mama's to Mama's weekend. Little hole in the wall with lines out the door on the weekends. The menu isn't "California Cuisine", it's just creative and delicious breakfast. Neighborhood isn't chichi Berkeley, it's working class Oakland. (Don't worry, it's safe!)
