James W. Plachek, Architect

— John P. Brennan, Builder; 1923 —

City of Berkeley Landmark
designated in 2006
This reinforced concrete building with its articulated brick facade and simple classical detailing was built for Harvey and Marie Ennor at a time of energetic downtown development. They expanded a small sandwich shop into an elegant restaurant, banquet room, grocery and butcher shop, bakery, and confectionary. From 1933 onward, the building successively housed the True Blue Cafeteria, World War II government agencies, a furniture store, and the Act One & Two Cinema. Builder John Brennan later established his own popular West Berkeley restaurant, Brennan's. The sidewalk-level storefront was replaced and the building renovated in 2008, but the second-story front remains intact.
