Love this place! Line out the door for big plates of brunch yummyness
Great Venue! I saw the Old time Music Convention there
Great place to experience meditation and to explore it further. Classes in psychology, Buddhist studies, Tibetan, Tibetan Yoga, and, of course, meditation. Something for everyone, no matter what kind of orientation to self and the world. Peaceful meditation garden with giant prayer wheel is open to public whenever they are open.
In my travels, I often think of Oakland's amazing food offerings and the Vegan Catfish plate with everything at Souley Vegan is like Christmas Morning to my mouth!! It was like $19 or something, worth twice that! ~ This kind of knowledge deserves reward!!! Cheers!!
It was amazing! 3 time customer!!!
last time I was there they said they were closing :( and becoming a 'Van' cool :) I'll look for them the next time I am in Oakland, which I hope is soon!
The Artichoke Bean Baked thing was a Vegan Orgasm!!!
I've eaten everywhere, and I love Marica's. They do wonderful fish, are fairly priced, and have a wonderful wait staff who make the dining experience terrific. Zagat rates them a 27 on food, which is only one star less than chez panisse and stars ahead of Oliveto, Bay Wolf, etc. It is a great local place to eat.
The owners are a coffee and tea dream team with over 50 years combined experience. Rich, Robert & Eric love nothing more than meeting customers and sharing their love of fine coffees and teas. You won't meet three nicer people and can ask them any questions, whether you are a seasoned Third Waver or an occasional decaf drinker.
The pastries from Starter Bakery are the best around - the Kouign Amann is a bit of heaven.
Keep your eyes on Highwire, great things are coming from these guys. They care about their customers and what they brew the cup.
What a fun place! Beautiful, unique art work and crafts. Great place to go shopping for the holidays. ALL LOCAL!
I love Chaparral City Studio Art Gallery! Friendly, inviting atmosphere.

Old Town Oakland (Off Broadway)
Best place in town.
I was impressed by what an excellent play/performance art this was. The cast members were all very engaging. The story is the Sumerian version of the classic Persephone myth but they made it fresh and compelling. Some of the interactive pieces worked and some fell flat; one based around writing & leaving personal memories inside the shrine of Inanna was very moving to me. I had zero expectations and was very pleasantly surprised. This company has a lot of talented people.
Excellent coffee, friendly staff!

I say that all the time! Everytime someone tries to hit off my bottle, I scream, "Hey, hey, hey! The wine mine!"
I LOVE the Wine Mine! Plenty of interesting, tasty wines and friendly, knowledgeable advice for picking the right ones for my preferences. I've gotten so many spectacular reds for embarrassingly low prices--that means more bottles brought home. The $1 Saturday tastings are a fun way to explore new wines and run into like-minded people and banter using our meager or prodigious oenophile talents. You're a fool if you aren't buying your wine here!
Best late night food in Downtown Oakland. And they don't gouge you for it either.
Also, there are only two bars in Downtown that are open on Sunday nights and that are worth a damn, and Disco Volante is one of them.
And beyond that, the staff is excellent, and so is the atmosphere.
Six is good ;-)
the food at disco is out of sight! hot smoked pork belly? yes please! the wait staff is always very friendly and accommodating. the cocktails are nicely made. plus the bartenders are very knowledgeable about the beer and wine they serve.
i've played here a number of times, so i'm really not sure what the extremely negative review is about here. i've never been hassled in any way by the owner. he's a great guy, and a straight shooter.
come down to disco volante for some great food and drink. support local musicians!
LOVE the Wine Mine! Fun on Saturdays and great selection. David and staff are so helpful, not only will they help you pick the wine, but I'd bet they could recommend the food to go with it and tell you how to make it!
This is a beautiful gallery with all sorts of wonderful surprises. All of the work is done by local artists. Only three store fronts down from Solano Avenue it is worth veering off the main street.
Best place to buy wine - Best place to taste wine - Best place to get advice.
David and his crew are making wine shopping fun.
