Have a friend from out-of-town coming over from her SF conference tomorrow (Sunday) to meet us in downtown Berkeley, and we're looking for a nice, leisurely, transit-accessible place to hang out for a few hours and catch up where we can get some decent chow (this will be immediately following a 3 hour martial arts class).
Was thinking maybe Far Leaves by College/Ashby, but was wondering if we've missed any clear winners downtown. Cesar's? (Despite living here for 6.5 years, I've never been.) I guess the pubs (Jupiter's, etc) are also an option if it's nice out.
