Stepping inside this cozy venue might conjure up sweet memories of sunny days spent in your grandma's kitchen. Beyond beer and wine, the cafe offers up a simple but sweet home-style menu of soups, sandwiches, and baked goods like lemon pound cake. Live bands, from jazz to bluegrass acts, hit the stage weekly. The Station also caters private events in its lounge area or in the entire cafe.
It's impossible to be all things to all people, but this cafe at the end of Park Street in Alameda almost succeeds. This space is a hodgepodge of creativity: A variety of hippie arts and crafts for sale, such as rain sticks and beaded baskets, fill up the space, plus there are regular crafts nights, and poetry readings. Order a pot of black lavender tea and start knitting at one of the large wooden tables. No one will kick you out.
This family-owned cafe is a great place to bring the family; it's got something for everyone, and the room to fit ’em. The back patio has space for fifty, and the garden is perfect for pets and young children. Laptop luggers are provided free wi-fi, and the eco-conscious can revel in the cafe's use of fresh organic fruits and veggies from the nearby Webster Street Farmers' Market, held every Tuesday and Saturday. For off-site patrons, the cafe's extensive menu is augmented by catering and delivery services.
