About Caffe 817


A Little About Us

Caffe 817 Homemade Jams

Here we are. At a place that was created to remind us of the Old World in the middle of a city that has as much diversity as any European metropolis. We are a café and restaurant with a neighborhood feel in Oakland’s vibrant downtown business district.

Here you will enjoy a cup of legendary coffee and food as comforting as that you’d expect from your grandmother’s kitchen. Caffe 817 is a place where we come to gather, visit, discuss, and laugh. And eat! We’re open for breakfast and lunch throughout the week, and brunch on the weekends.

The changing seasons shape our menus and provide inspiration. We understand that food is made by people and for people. Therefore, we proudly support local and sustainable farmers, ranchers, and artisans.

A homemade meal has a story. It’s a family history unto itself. It’s the act of creating satisfying homemade food, that drives us to share the experience with you.

Chefs and owners, Scott and Emily Goldenberg look forward to continuing this tradition at Caffe 817.
