{Off Shoots} Oakland, California

In Issue No. 11, one of my favorite features is Kate Pruitt’s write-up on Oakland. The city holds a special place in my heart: I lived there about a decade ago, in the Rockridge neighborhood, and have such great memories of that time.

While some of my old haunts are still around, a ridiculous number of cool shops and restaurants have opened in Oakland since I called it home. After reading Kate’s article, I am super excited about spending more time in the East Bay city, checking out the places she recommends. (I recently had the pleasure of dining at Duende and it exceeded my expectations. Everything I tried was delicious!)

{ CommonWealth Cafe & Public House }

{ Duende }

{ Homeroom }

{ Subrosa Coffee }

Psst … We’re hoping to share more of Kate’s Oakland picks soon! Because there were so many spots we just couldn’t include in the print magazine. If you have any Oakland favorites, let us know. (Next on my list of eateries to try is FuseBox.)
