My husband and I are visiting Oakland and walked to Rockridge Cafe for breakfast this morning. We enjoyed the relaxed, informal setting here. The waitstaff was pleasant and efficient. The food was delightful. It was a great way to start our day.

Nice little neighborhood spot, a favorite place for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Note not open in the evenings. Very friendly staff. A mainstay in Rockridge.
