I adore The Musical Offering and have been eagerly awaiting their reopening. I donated a little $ to their gofundme because I feel awful about what they (and other small local businesses) are enduring due to Covid. The place is a treasure - really good food, wonderful music, beautiful, well-lit room, and a frie h staff. There is nothing like this anywhere else I've lived. Hang in there, management, please! We need you to come back.

The Musical Offering does not deliver all to be desired; but, hey, America is a commercial republic. It will do (full of semicolon-happy writers). Every trip down from the Sierra I go there first for an hour. The coffeehouse is a second womb to me--sheltered by barrier walls, safe in my spot within a fluid sphere of indistinct and softly pulsing ambient sound.

When in Berkeley that was my favorite spot. The musical offering is a pearl in the desert of quality venues. It's not just the food (good!!!) Nor the music played there live and offline (good!!!). It's the atmosphere. Go there. You'll come back. For sure. 10 STARS!!
