Caffe 817

817 Washington Street
Oakland, CA 94607
510-371-7965websitePrice: Least Expensive
Area: Downtown

More of a coffeehouse than a restaurant, 817's convenient downtown location and reasonable Italian style breakfast and lunch fare make it a good option for those looking for a casual spot to read the paper and get a bite. It's also only 2 blocks from the Oakland City Center BART station. The urban setting is café hip with metal tables and chairs, terracotta tile flooring, high ceilings, and original art by locals decorating the walls. It's order at the counter here.

The breakfast menu offers corned beef hash, poached eggs with polenta or chorizo, polenta with maple syrup, seasonal fruit, granola, breads and pastries. Lunch includes various baguette sandwiches with turkey, French ham, eggplant or roast beef. Grilled focaccia and paninis include marinated mozzarella, chicken breast, portabello, and pancetta. There are three organic green salad options, with feta and walnuts, egg and tuna or prosciutto and parmesan.
