Extending more than two miles from Oakland to Berkeley, College Avenue is a smorgasbord of specialty shops, restaurants, bars, and markets that carry nearly everything a shopper could desire. Gourmet foods, chic clothing, rare books, antiques, and professional services are all here in abundance. Favorite purveyors include Pendragon Fine Books Maison d'Être Loot Soiree, an elegant women's clothing boutique Christensen Heller jewelers Full Swing, featuring full-figure fashions Ildi & Co. gift store Poppy Fabric and the Thelma Harris Art Gallery. Let the kids run loose at Rockridge Kids, a popular toy store a few doors down from the BART station. Market Hall, a two-story building that houses a bakery as well as produce, fish, flower, and wine markets, draws visitors and locals alike.
