are these places still around?

Planning a trip back to the Bay Area (Berkeley and SF)after a very long hiatus. Wanted to see if some of my favorites are still around as well as get suggestions on "must-eats" in the area. Are the following places still open and more importantly do they still have the same level of food as I remember. I know some aren't the best in their category but I remember them fondly from my college days at Cal. Are there any places that people remember from their Cal days that are still around (I was there from 87 to 91). The trip is really to just touch base with the whole Bay Area, I've been in NYC too long.

Bette's Oceanview Diner
Cafe Fanny
Blue Nile
The Cheeseboard
Top Dog
Zza's (or was it Zza, in Lake Merrit)
Zuni Cafe
Blondie's Pizza
Japanese Snacks
Circus Bar (near North Berkeley, I think in Solano)
Fat Apples
