Why locals recommend it
Cole is one of the few legendary coffee institutions that have kept up their quality and remain relevant. There are a few choice seats that fill up quick, but if you’re willing to hang around for a minute, you’ll probably have a table by the time your order shows up. They have an espresso bar, but I come here for the pour-overs in a pint glass. On the weekends, it’s the poached eggs on toast that keep me coming back.

Great coffee, tables, and wifi, in a beautiful part of Rockridge near a Safeway, fish shop, bakery, and more.

THe neighborhood standby coffe joint. Great place to hang out and watch the neighborhood. On weekends the bicycle riders arrive first, then the stroller bound parents, then the motorcyclists.

Delicious coffee store that's been at the heart of the neighborhood for ages. Buy a pound of coffee, and get a cup for free!

"the original" pour-over coffee -- roasted right there. You get to pick your brew.

New American Restaurant
“This place never disappoints. The food is outstanding, the wine list is top notch, and the cocktails are great too. It's a bit of a splurge, but wonderful for a date night or a special night out with friends. NOTE: Next door Southie (owned by the same people) is also a more casual, low-key option--but equally as delicious! In 15 years, we've never been disappointed by either of these places. ”

Noodle House

Bar
“Well known for lots of draft beer options. Also very good pub-grub menu. Popular to watch whatever game is on. Also appropriate for kids. This place has a true pub feel.”

Book Store
“Formerly Diesel Books, then bought buy its top employee with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. Great selection, well curated by people who love books. Support local business! Plus, Rockridge is swanky-done-east-bay-style: simply too charming not to stroll around for window shopping and novelty eats.”
