Fodor's Review

Chef and owner Tanya Holland turned an isolated corner in West Oakland into a breakfast and lunch destination. Influenced by her African-American heritage and her culinary education in France—and using local, organic, and seasonal products—she blends sweet and savory flavors like no one else and pairs her dishes with well-chosen wines. The dining room is fresh and bright, with a long, sleek counter, red-leather stools, and spacious booths and tables. This is the place to come for chicken and waffles.
