Bars, Clubs & Coffeehouses: Coffeehouses

Established by the Black Dot Artists Collective, the cafe serves up coffee, tea, espresso drinks, and sandwiches, and also serves as a venue for grassroots artists, activists, and everyday people.

This hippie outpost by West Oakland BART serves coffee, beer, wine, and breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Bohemian types are drawn to the decor, which can be described as "basement chic," with music and political posters covering the walls and motley furniture and old instruments taking up space. It is home to regular events like open-mics and benefit shows (often featuring owner and sometime Republican mayoral candidate Arnie Fields). A backyard patio offers a haven for smokers, and free wi-fi is available as well.

The cafe of the Oakland-based roasting company serves up its own blends, as well as gelato and sorbetto and other desserts.
