A sad update about Nikko’s the 24-hour diner in Oakland, they closed.
Was it the pandemic or the rampant crime? Or a mixture of both?
Either way, it is sad to see this historic piece of late-night Oakland cuisine vanish with the times.
We have a new updated full list of late night and 24 hour food in Oakland here.
One of Oakland’s very few 24 hour restaurants. A great late night eatery.
You may hear mixed reviews about Nikko’s(or never have heard of it before) but truth is they are awesome. Where else in Oakland can you go between 3am and 6am for quick fast good eats? Perfect stop on your way home from a crazy night in San Francisco. I personally always get an omelet of some sorts because they are great. The hash browns are great too.
Do I recommend this place for a 10am breakfast or a 7pm dinner? No, but only because you have plenty of other options around(Jim’s is my favorite) other than a 24 hour diner. But for fast, cheap and good late night hangover stopping food, this is your spot. No doubt. You’ll notice OPD and Ambulance drivers eat here often too. More proof it’s worth trying.
The staff is very long term and great too. Tip well!
