At a Glance

Once named Webster Street, public transportation came to the Piedmont Street area in 1876. In 1907, Piedmont became its own city, and a popular destination for those who, having lived through the great San Francisco earthquake the year before, left the City in search of more solid ground.

Over time, Piedmont Avenue would draw artists, bohemians, and new families, all who found its easy access to San Francisco, temperate climate, and charming nature irresistible. Today, the area holds the same appeal, and is one of the East Bay’s most desirable enclaves.

In a Word


Living Here

Piedmont Avenue is known for its one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and entertainment options that offer something for everyone:

  • The Piedmont Theater and Fenton’s Creamery (which was featured in Pixar’s movie Up), enhance the small-town feel of the area.
  • Some of the Bay Area’s top restaurants are located on Piedmont Avenue, including BayWolf, Dopo, and Cesar.
  • Piedmont Grocery is known for its gourmet food selection as well as everyday necessities, which it has been offering to locals for over 50 years.
  • And don’t miss Dr. Comics and Mr. Games, which has been bringing smiles to the area since 1988.


Small, architecturally interesting bungalows are the predominant type of homes found in the area, with many dating back to the early 1900s.

Why Piedmont Avenue?

Award-winning Piedmont schools, easy access to San Francisco and the rest of the East Bay, and a small-town, eclectic feel make Piedmont Avenue a highly desirable destination for those looking to put down roots and raise families.
