This cute little cafe is right next to the Bookmark, which is the bookstore that benefits the Oakland Library. So it's very convenient to grab lunch when contributing books or browsing. Today I had the huevos rancheros for brunch. Terrific! Served in a small tower of tortillas and eggs and beans, delicioso! My wife's pancakes were good, too, and the... More

I have eaten at this place several times in the past and have enjoyed it immensely. Great coffee, fab menu selections even veg and vegan options. The only weak link here is the service. It seems like they never have enough wait staff. I went in yesterday for breakfast, waited 20 minutes to have my order taken before I left.... More

A friend invited us to meet her there because she had twice had a good breakfast. Today's experience was very poor for all of us. The waitress was distracted and uninterested in us. After ordering, our food came in two deliveries and mine was cold! Can you imagine COLD eggs benedict. The waitress forgot two of our items and did... More

We met our friends here for Brunch on a holiday weekend. There was plenty of free street parking since it was a holiday. We arrived at 11am so there was no wait but as we started eating more and more people had to put their names on a list. My husband ordered the Thai Fried Chicken and Graham Cracker Crusted... More

Has Mexican inspired options, overall a good value, using fresh ingredients, not too heavy. Family friendly.

Been twice and there is always a line to get in for breakfast/brunch but totally worth it! Don't really know what to say about Cockadoodle - expect plentiful, heavy breakfast meals that are worth the calories. Great for a Sunday morning with friends.

The place does not look like it from the outside (or the inside, for that matter), but the food is amazing. We both had the "The Cockle" - one with pancakes and bacon, the other with toast and chicken-apple sausage. Both dishes were excellent. Not cheap, but you get plenty to eat, and you'll leave satisfied.

Great meal - I had the Crab and poached eggs. It is popular with locals. I was the first customer at 8am on a Sunday and by 8:30 it was full with people adding their names to a waiting list!

If you are in the Oakland area, you don't want to miss having breakfast at this scrumptious cafe! They have everything here you can imagine for breakfast: unique drinks, entrees and sides and they are all organic and gourmet. There were four of us and we loved it so much, we went back the next day, before heading for the... More

Maybe no so pricey when considering the quality and quantity. You get plenty to eat, there are lots of choices, it was an excellent breakfast and service was friendly and capable.
