Restaurants in Oakland

With well over 300 restaurants, the City of Oakland is a melting pot of cuisines from around the world. One of the most ethnically diverse cities in the United States, you can a little bit of everything like Cuban cuisine, Spanish tapas restaurants, soul food, Eritrean cuisine and more. As with every city, there are a few well know (or sometimes secret) menu items that are a “must try” when you visit like the Chicken & Waffles from Brown Sugar Kitchen, an ice cream cone from Fenton’s and the best mac ’n Cheese you will ever put in your mouth at Homeroom. One way you can tell that Oakland has a lot of great food is when you ask locals about their favorite dishes or spots, you will most likely hear a little something different from each person.

While there are far too many options to list, below is a starting point for some great restaurants in Oakland.
