“Tasty Breakfast on Lake Merritt's East Side”
Review of Lakeshore Cafe

Lakeshore Cafe
Ranked #166 of 1,435 Restaurants in Oakland

Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 November 2016

I recently ate here with an Oakland friend who said it is a go-to breakfast spot. I was overwhelmed by the noise level when we entered but a server pointed us to a table by the back door that accesses the patio dining area. It was quieter so we could visit while dining. I had the mushroom spinach cheese omelet with home fries. I thought it was tasty and a good value. My friend had a pear salad with grilled chicken, was pleased with it, and took half home for dinner. Service was pleasant and prompt. No complaints there at all. On a future visit I'd like to try the griddle fare (pancakes, waffles, French toast).

Their Breakfast is definitely the best in the neighborhood. It can be really busy & you may have to wait, but worth it. I usually order one of their specials.

Had a delicious hamburger, the food presentation was also good. Staff very helpful, I sat in the back part and the waitress was always checking on me.
