It’s a secret

Step through the tall vine covered front gate and you’ve entered another world. The secret garden—a classic of children’s lit and a theme for travelers who enjoy peeking into some other family’s private courtyard behind an otherwise austere wall—in Rome? Provence? San Miguel? I don’t know about you, but when we get hungry on the road, we are thrilled to stumble into the little restaurant hidden away in a courtyard (usually Jardin de something) passing by popular places on busy plazas even if they happen to gaze out at cathedrals and/or coliseums.

Now picture a tall vine-covered gate on Milvia Street, Berkeley’s bicycle boulevard, just a few blocks from downtown Berkeley, the Berkeley Bowl and Ashby BART. Enter the gate, take a deep breath, and leave the busy world behind. Enjoy the lushly planted, very private oasis. Mexican tiles, flowering bougainvillea, stone paths and garden buddhas put you in a vacation mood. You know you can count on restoring mind, body and spirit right here, at home.
