Went to Berkeley this past Saturday to watch the men's soccer team play an exhibition match against UC Davis. It was a good match that Berkeley dominated and won 2-0. The game started at 2pm and lasted a couple hours. Having only had toast for breakfast and a granola bar for lunch I was famished.

My daughter suggested Jupiter near the BART station. Having just sat in the sun for a long while we requested water. The gracious waitress accommodated us with several pitchers. Jupiter is also brewery, so we could have had beer. No one in the group was a beer drinker but the table next door was enjoying their brews with gusto. We ordered our dinner and a bottle of pinot grigio.
The decor is a rugged refectory kinda look with an nice outdoor eating area. The place was busy with a band warming up outside. It seemed like about a minute had gone by when food started to arrive. Big portions, hot and fast and cheap this is my kinda joint. I had the 9"Aries Pizza loaded with pepperoni and bubbling mozzarella cheese. This is the only plate I did not photograph. I think the aroma must have overwhelmed me. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
