Kensington is a little town with stunningly beautiful views nestled in the hills between El Cerrito, Berkeley, and Albany.

There is a one-street shopping district in this little West Contra Costa County town, that has all the essentials; a great wine shop, several cafes for cups of gourmet coffee, a restaurant that has actual Picassos on the walls, a deli to die for, a great grocery where you can get 4-star catering, a bank, an ice cream parlor, and a hardware store! There are even a general store and a small post office.

This is the hub of quiet Kensington, and it is also just minutes away from the bustling shopping strip of Solano Avenue in Berkeley and Albany.
