Latest Café Réveille keeps Berkeley alert
As promised last fall, Cafe Réveille’s location along the Fourth Street corridor in Berkeley is now open at 760 Hearst Avenue. Like the chain’s most recent Lower Haight location, this one is done up with touches of pink, and while there’s plenty of single-origin coffee, the emphasis is just as much on food, with sandwiches, grain bowls, and even dinner in the works. Daily hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m, with seating inside and out for 60 total.
