Step aside, San Francisco. Though often overshadowed by its cross-bay counterpart, the city of Oakland—and indeed the entire East Bay—is a quirky cultural hub and an epicurean epicenter in its own right, located just across the Bay Bridge (and a BART or ferry ride away). Stretching almost 14 blocks long in the corridor between Oakland and neighboring Berkeley to the north, the Rockridge area of the city is decidedly cute and quaint, with a mix of mansions, cottages and bungalows, as well as cafes, restaurants, and retail boutiques. Many of these are clustered along College Avenue, the main thoroughfare, which features everything from ice cream parlors to rare book-shops to independent movie houses.
