Solano Avenue is a local treasure with the charm of a small town and an unmatched array of restaurants and retail establishments, including professional and personal services.
Solano Avenue bridges two beautiful cities, Berkeley and Albany, bringing together the best of what makes each unique. Solano Avenue is blessed with a wonderful combination of mom-and-pop shops, modern boutiques, and an incredible spectrum of restaurants. Solano Avenue is the home to over a hundred professional services and health-related retail and service organizations.
Spanning 26 blocks long (one mile) Solano Avenue hosts over 260 businesses which include 65 restaurants, 30 retail shops, one movie theater, a "pocket park", two grocery stores and two public elementary schools! Most of our enterprises are independently owned.
