Neighborhood place for great coffee & gifts

Large arrow left

In the upper Rockridge district of Oakland you'll find the charming Terrace coffee house with an adjoining gift shop. Seasonal items are a specialty in the gift shop with Halloween and Christmas taking over the shop in a riot of visual delights. Plan on getting your spooky ghosts and xmas decor here. The owner, Helen, is from Brazil and is constantly tweaking her shop's merchandise and the beverage & food offerings to entice her loyal customers. Breakfast and lunch is served daily as well as tapas with wine & beer from 3-6pm. There's a nice terrace for eating outdoors when weather permits along with a special "dog section" so you & your beloved Fido can enjoy the ambience together. Free parking.
