This little coffee shop located on Grand Ave right by Lake Merritt is definitely my favorite place in Oakland for a triple espresso. If you know of something better please comment below so I can try it.
It’s got a quiet atmosphere, a few tables, couches and a lot of flyers on the board for upcoming Oakland events and such. The venue is rather large and inviting and they offer free WiFi.
I have gotten chocolate croissants here a few times and they are not very fresh at all and not that good. I’m thinking they buy from somewhere like Costco.
They also offer bagels and sandwiches and things of the like but I tend to be going to Grand Lake Kitchen when I’m in this area so I haven’t tried them.
Great espresso, inviting atmosphere, maybe a good place to bring your laptop and work for a few hours.
Nice staff, seems family owned and operated.
Not so fresh food? Maybe I have had bad luck but I am not a fan of the croissants considering other amazing options in Oakland.
