Located in Oakland’s Uptown district, Anfilo serves organic Ethiopian coffee, as well as authentic Ethiopian food with plenty of vegetarian options.
This Chinatown breakfast and lunch counter serves “organic bicycle-pedaled roasted coffee” and Sri Lankan homemade Chai tea. There’s also an array of tropical smoothies, and a lunch menu full of Caribbean and Sri Lankan flavors that rotates daily and often sells out. (You can order a day in advance.) The muffins and breads all come from Semifreddi’s bakery. Prices are very reasonable, seating is limited, and catering options are available.
This family-owned downtown Oakland cafe and bakery offers a fresh and impressively well-stocked menu for all your breakfast, lunch, and snack-time needs. Bagels and croissants join cold and hot sandwiches, soups, wraps, and salads. Don't miss the fresh-baked cookies, muffins, and scones. Plenty of thirst-quenchers and pick-me-ups are also on hand -- including, of course, an extensive coffee bar. Online ordering is available, and regulars might just find themselves being treated like family.
