Woody’s cafe (1841 Park Blvd Oakland, CA) located across from the Parkway Theater and next to Woody’s laundromat.
I had an espresso and a turkey panini:
The espresso was drinkable but I can’t say that I enjoyed it. It tasted a little weak and burnt with hints of acidity (I might have liked it a bit stronger) and it also tasted a bit stale. but it was drinkable, and I needed the caffeine.
The turkey panini was pretty tasty. The people working there were really nice and there’s currently a lot of interesting photography on the walls of signs found in oakland. during the lunch hour, the crowd seemed to be mostly people hanging out on their computers. I wouldn’t come back here just for the coffee but it’s not a bad place to visit.
