I've been coming to Corner Antiques for years. It's actually one of the things I look forward to when I visit family in the Boston area since there's always something new & interesting to see! From antique lard tins (who knew these existed?) to Mickey Mouse clocks to Vintage Jewelry, old-time Christmas ornaments, and painted greeting cards, I've seen them all here at different times, all tastefully presented & well-curated. To top it all off, Jan (the owner) is always welcoming & her prices are great. I almost don't want to post this review because then all the good stuff will sell before I can visit again, but this hidden gem of a place really deserves your business. Go shop here! :) FYI - It's a little hard to find (behind Benjamin Moore Paints), but look for a light blue bike propped up against a fence in the middle of the block -- turn in there! It's on your right behind the paint store, with free parking right there.

My sister stayed here for a conference & while she was here, a dress was stolen from her room. The worst part is a woman in housekeeping originally told me by phone that they'd found it, but then later on told her supervisor she doesn't know what I'm talking about. Have talked with the head of Lost & Found and the Housekeeping supervisor (since housekeeping were the last ones in the room), but it's 5-days later and no one has seen it. I was also told I'd be called back again with an update and sadly never received that. :-( Definitely not worth $284/night.

First heard of this place from a friend from China when I lived in NYC! (there's a branch there) Unique Chinese-fusion cuisine and food combos I've never seen anywhere else! Warning: This is not a place for the spice-intolerant (I've lived in India and I sometimes have a hard time with the spiciness of food here!), but if you're ok with that, then the best thing to do is call in & take the food to go. Line gets terrible quickly around dinner time.

The good: Hyper-convenient location next to Downtown Berkeley BART. Open late. The bad: The line is ridiculous almost any time of day. Those poles with belts between them that they have outside clubs to manage the line, they have a set of those permanently in this store for the cash registers & it's not uncommon to see 10+ people in line at a time. So, if you need sthing (anything) while downtown and you don't want to walk far, stop in here. If you're in a rush, good luck to you (or drive to CVS just a few blocks south on Shattuck, same side of the street).

Stay away unless you want to get injured & have them blow you off after. Was at an event here & one of their curtains fell down & the HEAVY rod holding it up hit me in the head/nose. Since the show started 1-hr late we were running late & wanted to get going, so I counted myself lucky my nose wasn't broken (just a LOT of tenderness & soreness) & we left. But then I started having nerve issues in my face I've never had before. Supperclub says they're not liable for anything because I didn't file a report that night. Lovely.

I've been to many Access Health clinics over the years (SF, San Mateo, Oakland), going back to when they were called QuickCare. While it's a decent & affordable option for when need to see someone off-hours (evenings, weekends), it's definitely gone downhill a lot over the years. Seems they rarely have doctors anymore (last time I went, they said there wouldn't be an MD in the office at all for 8 MORE DAYS). One time, I arrived for a 9:00 AM appointment only to have the nurse on duty (the only care provider) arrive to work at... 9:20 AM. The nurse didn't know how to use a tongue depressor, she just kept making me gag & never got a good look at my throat. Another time, they were out of the antibiotic I needed for an infection. The people at these clinics for the most part are caring, and I'm glad places like this exist to offer affordable basic healthcare to those without better options, but that's the thing. If your condition & treatment are *basic* (meaning 100% straightforward), then you can go here and be taken care of. But if your symptoms aren't typical or they need to be figured out from amongst a few possibilities, it's a crapshoot whether you'll get good care here. If this is your only option, then go. But if you have other options... well, you probably wouldn't be considering this then, and really you shouldn't go here if you have other options based on my recent experiences in the past year.

Maybe the brunch is better than the lunch because their lunch pasta literally made me ill all the rest of the day & night (how hard is it to make a decent fettuccine in cream sauce?). Every time I walk by on the way to other eateries nearby, the place is almost entirely empty. I really want non-chain restaurants to do well, but after the pasta incident, never again.
