featuring NORTH OAKLAND'S BEST COMFORT FOOD, craft COFFEE & people.
Actual Cafe opened in 2009, at the corner of San Pablo and Alcatraz Avenues in North Oakland's Golden Gate neighborhood. We're a bustling all-day/every-day family-friendly gathering place. We specialize in easy-to-eat food made from great ingredients, excellent espresso, and a smile.
We like art, music, bikes, and all the fascinating people around us. We have laptop-free weekends because we think although technology has given us great tools, we also need lively places to come together.
We think that a thriving independent local economy builds real and sustainable solutions, so we spend every dollar that we can on local staff, vendors, and producers. We're a Certified Green Business. We support fair wages for our own staff and for all restaurant workers.
