Whether you're looking for a lazy Sunday or a place to unwind, you'll find the comforts of casual dining at these restaurants. We begin with the simple pleasures of home-sweet-home meals at Guerilla Cafe in Berkeley. Then we catch a wave to Buddy's Bites and Brews, which brings the laidback surfin' lifestyle of seafood and beer to Hayward. Finally, we wind down with French-inspired California comfort food and a game of billiards at Luka's Taproom & Lounge in Oakland.
