Westbrae Biergarten for outdoor dining or a quick date

Westbrae Biergarten is nice for families

The Wesbrae Biergarten is an outdoor beer garden with casual food options. Pedro’s Brazil Cafe is on site. We checked it out for a late lunch a few days ago and were quite pleased.

How it works: Everything is outdoors. You order first at a counter, and they bring your food out to you. I had a salad, my husband the famous tri-trip sandwich, and Zayn had already eaten so we got him a pretzel and fries to snack on (but they do have a kids’ menu). He devoured the fries, naturally.

What we liked:

  • Family-friendly – tons of strollers, babes in arms, and toddlers running around the place. Plus there’s stroller (and bike) parking in the rear.
  • Plenty of seating – picnic tables, lawn chairs, high chairs, and a fake grassy area where I saw families with small children playing while the parents enjoyed dinner.
  • Gated with only one open entrance so you don’t have to watch multiple exits while your child runs around.
  • Umbrellas for when it’s hot, heaters for when it’s cold, and a fire pit. I thought that was cool.
  • Bathrooms.
  • Sporting Events. The World Cup and other events that attract a spectator crowd with a global vibe are shown on the TVs.
  • Beer.
  • Easily accessible. We walked, but you could bike, and there’s plenty of free neighborhood parking.
  • Trains! If your kid is train obsessed like my toddler, it’s on the BART path.
  • In pre-Covid times, there is an open air sandbox/play area.

We’ll be back, hopefully when there’s more food options and music to dance to. Maybe we’ll see you there.

  1. They had music. Unfortunately there was ONE complaint by a neighbor, so they aren’t allowed any amplified sound anymore! This is truly a bummer. Even quiet table side small speakers will net them a big fine. I guess that’s the price of opening an outdoor place in Berkeley.
