Cafe 15 is my favorite cafe in Oakland. The food is always fresh, nutritious and delicious.  The soups and salads are wonderful. The staff are helpful and courteous. Breakfast is lovely too. The location is very convenient to the State Building where I work. Thanks for so many healthy and tasty options. More...

Excellent meal. The buddha bowl has some chilled elements and some warm elements. The sweet potato is delicious. The cod is crispy on the outside and moist inside. It's served with edamame and quinoa and squash. I would eat here again. The only thing that I suggest is to get your food to go because the dining room is very small. More...

I've been wanting to try Cafe 15 for a while now. I've been to Annie's Deli right next door countless times, and can't say why I haven't just gone in. Probably because it is a popular spot.So on a disgusting day for a late lunch, decided to hit them up for their chicken sandwich.They do have salads, soups, and other traditional cafe grub like a burger, pulled pork, and fried fish. I guess I always hoped they had like real lunch entrees. But based on the reviews and the pics, decided to get the fried chicken sandwich.It's not like this is the only place to offer one in Downtown, between Organic Coup, Popeyes, Catered To You. But this is a solid sammich. Thick, fried chicken breast, and that aioli make it stand out. The fries were definitely solid and overflowing. Instead of coke, asked if I could upgrade to an Arnold Palmer and as it was before Thanksgiving, she did. When looking for a big, carefully made sammich, I would definitely come back. More...

Amazing! The friend chicken sandwich was super good I loved the Brussels sprouts all the food was great.  Only downside is there was no coffee when I went but the food was so good I didn't care!!

I can't stop ordering the Buddha Bowl; the fried tofu and veggies are an amazing combination. Staff are incredibly friendly. This is the place I go to treat myself to a nice lunch! More...

I love this place. It's tasty, healthy, they're quite charming.It's near our new office, and I've been about 3 times in the 4 days since I discovered it.

I forget how many great lunch options they have...including good soup, salad, breakfast, sparkling water, coffee, fruit and cookies. They also have outdoor seating, which is nice for warmer days in Oakland. More...

I'm torn with leaving 2 stars, I really am. However, after spending over $15 for 10 brussels sprouts and a small piece of chicken for which I had to wait 25 minutes,  I'll still sleep tonight with my 2 star rating. New owner-it changed hands. That's not necessarily a problem, but they really need to get the entire house(front and back) in order. The wait time is horrendous for take out, and this is true even pre-ownership change. After seeing salad after salad after salad flying out the kitchen-mind you those orders came well after placing my sprouts and chicken- I could no longer contain my exasperation and let out a sigh as I waited near the only place you can stand for take out- next to the garage and dirty dish drop off.  The woman waiting next to me said the same thing, ironically had ordered the same lunch.  The new owner introduced herself and I received the same excuse I always would hear about the back log- "short 2 people" "kitchen staff alone today"..... Granted, she was gracious, but a new system is in dire need at cafe 15. That poor girl manning the cash register had to ring up customers, take phone orders, deliver food to tables, bag and hand out to go orders.  She totally needs a raise!Unless you arrive at 11:30, plan at least 45-60 minutes for lunch at cafe 15 and be prepared to shaft your employer even more time as you eat your food.  Perhaps Cafe 15 has had its 15 minutes of fame and it's time I finally learned my lesson Cafe Rio has just as fresh food, and faster service.So sad.  So very sad to see such good food get pulled down by such poor service.

Cannot say enough good things about Cafe 15. We've used their catering twice in the last two months for lunch meetings of 15 people. The food was wonderful both times, and the service was really impeccable -- flexible when I needed to make last-minute changes, and on time with their delivery to our location. We're an environmental group so try to avoid single-use plastics, and they let us use their reusable platters and return them later that week. Thank you so much to Cybele and the kitchen staff!

Conveniently located right outside the back entrance of the Elihu M Harris State Office Building, came here during lunch hour. There's a few small tables inside and outside, lots of people ordering to go. We had the Fried Chicken Sandwich served with citrus cabbage slaw and Cafe 15 Burger with a side order of sweet potato fries. Everything was cooked perfectly, tasty, although could have used just a pinch more seasoning. Staff was all very friendly and establishment was cute and clean. Be sure to check Facebook for daily specials not on the regular menu! More...

Cafe 15 is my favorite lunch stop in downtown Oakland! My coworkers originally told me about it, and we order from them probably once a week or more. The owner is a total sweetheart, remembers our names, our favorites, and is very helpful and attentive. My personal favorites are the Buddha Bowl, the Cafe 15 wrap with fried chicken, and the Mushroom Broth (when they have it!). They update their menu daily (easy to find on their Facebook page) but have staples as well. The cafe itself is super cute and quaint, and located in a easy-to-find place. I will continue going to Cafe 15 indefinitely because the service is friendly and I have yet to have something that hasn't surprised me in taste and freshness! More...

BEST TOFU BUDDHA BOWL OF ALL TIME. Super fresh. Tofu is fluffy and flavorful and just so good. Love this place!

This place is too expensive and the portion of the  chicken burger is not worth the price. I think at best that burger should cost 6 or 7 dollars. I have a feeling that they must be paying crazy Amounts of money on their over head? There was two people who took orders there at the same time and not many customers maybe that's why? Anyways their food might be okay for you if you are a fat cat working for the government but for the rest of us the people going to try use their services don't go here. It's sad. If you go don't tip they don't give you any actual waitress service. I thought they would offer to fill up my tea or so thing. The chicken burger was way too small and salty maybe this was an off day I would change my review but I don't think I'll  ever go back ...If you can afford it try it out More...

Got lucky stumbling into this place on my way to Flax. It's a delicious menu filled with healthy food in a cute and chill atmosphere. I ordered the "Best Brussels Sprouts Ever," and they really were. I added chicken and it was perfectly cooked. Also ordered the wedge fries and veggie soup for the little, and though she was being picky I thought they were delicious. Also fair prices. More...

This place is such a treat. They use great ingredients and each dish is unique and scrumptious. Their blueberry burger is literally the best burger I've ever had (seasonal), and the Budda Bowl is addicting with a delicious miso sauce, and exceptional tofu. I go here for lunch almost every week. It's pricey but it's worth it - organic, high quality ingredients which you can tell in the taste. More...

This place is a hoot. Although I don't recall what I ordered my first time there, but my second and third is absolutely great. Their fried chicken sandwich with slaw is certainly delicious for me to have it every time I'm there. Don't be a bit discourage by the small space in the cafe. The only major complaint I have is the cashier-unfriendly man, and a bit rude everytime I go there. More...

Fried. Chicken. Sandwich. You take the slaw that comes on the side and you put it on the sandwich. Then you put some Cholula on it. Then you eat it. Just do it. So perfect with a good old fashioned can of Coca-Cola. More...

Cafe 15 has high quality food made fresh to order. I was able to speak with the owner Cybele and I felt she's come with a passionate mission to serve real food at reasonable prices. I'll definitely be back when I'm in the neighborhood. I had the carrot and ginger soup that had great balanced flavors and an arugula salad that was surprisingly filling. Healthy and delicious.

The breakfast burritos here are fantastic and the staff is friendly enough, but the wait time for food is excessive and their online ordering is awful. Last time I got a breakfast burrito it took 15-20 minutes to prepare, so today I ordered ahead using their website to help save time. I arrived to pick up and was informed they didn't actually have any burritos available today, which is strange because their online ordering system took my money and mentioned nothing about items being unavailable. No big deal, it happens, so can I just have my money back please? "No, you'll have to deal with the company that does our online orders." Great. So I go to work, log in to their system, click on their Twitter link.. broken. Search some more, find their contact phone number, call them, their message says "We do not accept phone calls at  this number, send us a text." So I email them instead. And the saga continues..Long story short, they make rad food but it's quite a headache to actually get ahold of any of it.EDIT: manager reached out to me to make things right. Much appreciated. I didn't accept the offer, but I did add a star onto my rating. More...

I don't know how many times I've been here but I've always had an amazing experience. The food is fresh and organic and the chefs use seasonal produce. Cybelle, the owner is very sweet and the customer service is on point. They have tons of options for vegetarian folks or people with dietary restrictions. Thanks cafe 15! :) More...

I've been here twice, and it is my new favorite lunch spot! Both times, I ordered from the special's wall. Crispy Brussels sprouts + fried tofu: The Brussels sprouts were perfectly crispy, and had a great citris and chili sauce. The tofu is super soft on the inside, but lightly breaded and fried on the outside. Delicious! Bhudda bowl + tofu:There was a great tahini miso sauce over a big bowl of veggies, quinoa, and the same fried tofu. Filling, great flavor, and healthy! Overall, I do admit the prices are a bit on the expensive side, but the food is top notch and worth it! More...

Went to Cafe 15 with some coworkers for lunch today. Split the fried chicken sandwich and beef Ragu pasta special with one of them. Everything was freshly cooked and so delicious! The slaw with the fried chicken sandwich was a bit too salty/acidic but went well inside the sandwich. The fried chicken was seasoned really well and lightly fried. Great chicken to sandwich ratio and didn't leave me feeling gross afterwards. The pasta was good but nothing out of this world. We also snuck a bite of our other coworkers veggie Buddha bowl which was insanely good. Will definitely be ordering that next time. A great place to lunch and will certainly be coming back! More...

Lots of variety, super fresh, creative, healthy and substantial. There is a lot of care, and thoughtfulness that goes in to the space, and food. Have gone here for years, change of ownership brought new ideas and didn't change quality. This morning my husband had this crazy power bowl of sweet potato, grilled chicken, quinoa awesome creamy dressing excellent way to start the day! More...

This place is extremely close to my job is how I first found  it. I would say I probably frequent here at least once a week. The food is always fresh and good, I can't say I've ever waited a long time for my food either. The service is ridiculously good and the owner is the sweetest. She's attentive and remembers you. Will be going here forever! More...

My sister introduced me to this place as I'm here for business. I split the breakfast burrito with her without any meat and I was skeptical that anything without meat was enjoyable. Let me tell you that was hands down the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. The restaurant is very clean and the atmosphere is welcoming without trying or overdoing it. The owner, cashier, and chef are all very bubbly and genuine. Relationship goes a long way with me for determining favorites. More...

Had the fried chicken sandwich, which is the go to meal here. It was great. The fries were especially good. There weren't many people there so the food was made fresh to order. In fact, we were the only people there. Service was extremely friendly. The space is small and quaint, but very well done. On Friday there is a special that gives you free fries with the purchase of a drink. Overall, I've highly recommend this place. More...

I'm in Oakland for a conference and have now had several meals at Cafe 15. It's a small, unassuming place and there's no restroom, but it's clean and bright and the food is fresh and delicious. Omelette special- ham and Swiss one day, broccoli and Swiss the other day. It was a generous portion and can with fresh sourdough toast. The omelette was slightly overdone for my taste, but I like softly prepared eggs. Mixed greens salad with apple, celery, nuts, and some other wonderful additions. I added chicken breast (it was cooked perfectly) and to my surprise the salad also came with sourdough. It was enough for lunch and dinner. Highly recommended! More...

I love this place! Fresh food coupled with phenomenal service. I've been going to Cafe 15 regularly for over a year. The owner is super sweet.  Only once did my food not come out quite right. I explained what happened to the owner. She sincerely apologized, promptly refunded my money and got me another dish that was delicious. More...

I try to eat lunch here whenever I get a day off during the week. Hours are only Mon-Fri, which sucks since I live just around the corner. Fresh, healthy, delicious items, which can be a rare find in downtown Oakland. Chicken sando, cafe 15 salad, Brussel sprouts etc etc it's all great! Just wish they were slightly less pricey and opened on Saturday's! More...

Ordered the fried chicken sandwich with fresh cut fries and coleslaw.  Very fresh, not greasy at all.  The chicken was juicy and plump and the fries were nice and crispy.  My only warning is that you should wait until it cools down.  If you're impatient like me you might burn your mouth!  Haha!  So wait and savor the goodness!  The coleslaw, as noted in other reviews, is not mayo based so it's very fresh and crispy/crunchy.  Much more healthier (if you overlook the fried chicken and fries...)!  Haha!  The owners/cashier are very friendly and nice!  If I worked nearby instead of here for training this would be a regular joint for me!  Lots of good stuff on the menu. And after speaking with the owner he notes that the menu changes depending on the fresh ingredients they get daily.  My only issue is that the fried chicken, although fresh and not greasy, the way I like it, could have had a little more flavor.  Or maybe an option for a Cajun spice added to the chicken.  Then it would have been even better.  If I could I'd give them more like 4.5 stars but Yelp doesn't allow that.  Overall, this place is very good and everything is fresh!  And the fact that the menu specials evolve depending on the fresh ingredients they get daily is also a nice plus!  The outside seating is also a nice touch.  This place is a must try hidden gem and a good way to support a local business!

Yum yum! So this is my second time here, first time I had the fried chicken sandwich which was good. This time I got their blueberry burger, after being talked into it, by the super sweet owner. I ordered the blueberry compote on the side because I wasn't sure, blueberries on a burger After tasting the compote I was like yum yum! And added it to what ended up being one of the best burgers I've had all year! So freaking good! From the saltiness of the cheese, to the bold flavors of the compote, to the crunch of the bacon, such a great combo!Ow and it was free fry Friday! Bomb ass fries! More...

tl;DR: Fried chicken sandwich is much better than Bakesale Betty.------------------The fried chicken sandwich here garners a lot of well deserved attention. It comes with lemon aioli and a side of slaw and though it typically comes on a torpedo roll, in this pic I took it was on a regular bun (yelp.com/biz_photos/cafe…). Not sure if it's inflation or rents, but a couple years ago this was $8-9, but now it's $13 making it less of an "everyday lunch" kind of thing.That said, they do it right with a nicely fried and juicy piece of chicken (despite being white meat yelp.com/biz_photos/cafe…). The chicken / breading is well seasoned and the lemon aioli adds a subtle acidityI like that the Slaw is non-mayo based and has a nice citrusy tang. Grab a fork because it comes on the side, which I like because it puts the eater in control of how much or little they want in the sandwich.Different flavored water available every day to quench your thirst (yelp.com/biz_photos/cafe…) More...

It was my first time here today. I came with a friend for brunch and I have not been here before. The inside of the cafe was very nice and clean I loved the tables because there was seating both indoor and outdoor. It was extremely humid and hot outside but the cafe is located directly next to a very tall building that provided shade so we could have a comfortable brunch. I have to admit the menu had a lot of great sounding brunch favorites but I chose to get the cafe 15 salad and I also put in additional grilled chicken breast on the salad, mind do you it was very expensive for a salad. The salad i ordered cost nearly $20! But none the less I was very happy with the salad and the portion size because it was definitely filling. I also noticed how cute the set up of the interior was and they have this fruit infused water that was freaking amazing and super refreshing in the hot weather. To say the least, I thought it was a great brunch meal, a bit on the expensive side but the quality is awesome. Not to mention they have a kitchen where you can see them prepare the fresh dishes. Obviously going here again and was not disappointed with my first visit :) More...

I've had the chicken sandwich twice before I decided to write a review.  Is it the best chicken sandwich I've ever had? No, but it IS good.  Is it heavily seasoned? No, but bland, it is not. There's some really prissy people on here complaining and if that's the case, simply, don't get it.  I liken it to a light, fresh sandwich. I never feel full or bloated, yet completely satisfied. The sandwich comes together w lemon aioli and a small amount of lettuce w their 'slaw on the side.  To brighten up the sandwich I actually pile high the 'slaw on top of my sandwich. NOW you've got an explosive amount of flavors in your mouth. Indeed.  I'm a fan.  p.s. my only qualm, at $14 including tax for JUST a sandwich, a bit much. It should include their fancy fries at that price. More...

I ordered the old fashion potato hash. It had potatoes, fennel pork sausage and 2 eggs. I had my eggs scrambled. I also ordered a side of hot chocolate. Which was turrible (worst than terrible). But that potato hash!!! Remarkable. That sausage was sooo tasty. I would definitely go again and skip out on the hot chocolate but I would definitely try more on there food menu. The place is very small. It wasn't crowded. A lot of to go orders. Very nice and personable waitstaff and chef. I'm not holding the hot chocolate against them because the food was remarkable. Lol.

This place IS a bit stuffy for the average person, but the food really is excellent! I admit, I was put off at first by the attitude of most of the staff that I dealt with at first, but the food MORE than made up for it. Their salad menu is PHENOMENAL! Their sandwiches (burgers too) are amazing, not to mention their french fries. If you are in the area, I HIGHLY recommend this little place. More...

One of the best places to get healthy and real food from a real chef that really cares for real people.The owners of this little joint are real down to earth. They try to be environmental conscious, but also deal with running a business. So although they may not advertise they organic some of their items are organic and locally sourced. If you go here you must get the fried chicken. More...

I've probably been here dozens of times, and the food has stayed consistently fantastic for the years I've been coming here. It's obvious they care about finding the best ingredients, and it's obvious they've been to culinary school or had some training in cuisine. I love that they have a daily omelet special so you don't get bored. The Cafe 15 omelet that they have every day with dates and goat cheese is phenomenal. They serve Mr. Espresso coffee (roasted locally in Jack London Square) which is excellent. The salads are creative with seasonal ingredients, and the hamburgers are grass-fed and incredible.The few less-than-stellar reviews I just read through are all whiners. My eggs were too hot. Waah. I didn't get enough fries. Boo hoo. They mixed up my order. [sniffle.] There was no waiter (at this counter-service restaurant). Waaaaah. This is what you have time for? More...

This is my favorite cafe in Oakland. The food is fresh and delicious. It's a little pricey, but you get great quality ingredients and exciting dishes. .. not just a plain Cesar salad.  I love that they toast the acme bread and serve it with the salads, it tastes so good with the slightly charred bits. Staff are always really friendly too, and if you're a regular they know your name and your preferences! I always take business lunch meetings here. More...

I love the staff at Cafe 15, and the food is amazing.  Innovative recipes, fresh ingredients, skilled preparation, great presentation.  My favorite is the jalapeno slaw--fresh, light, crisp and flavorful without being overly spicy.  The herb fries are also amazing.My gripe about Cafe 15 is the clientele.  * I can't seem to go there with getting stuck in line behind some asshat that wants to ask dozens of questions about the menu and be fussed over.  * Worse is having someone who called in an order hop to the front of the line and then decide they want something different or in addition to what they phone ordered.* The table space is limited, but the clientele treats the space like a lounge/cafe to have meetings, work on laptops, or linger to chat well after they've finished eating.* The loud conversations by other patrons keep the space from being a relaxing, recharging get away from work.I recommend going in before 11:30am, or well after the lunch rush to avoid the annoying patrons.   Getting take-away is also an option if the line is short, but the dining room annoying.

Editing the previous comment. She remembers me. And the courteous service and attitude is what I really needed, and I did get something without onion.

Great place! Eaten here for lunch several times. Never breakfast though. If the breakfast is good as the lunch this place deserves five.

Friendly people, OJ is fresh squeezed, and breakfast sandwich is super tasty and a great value too -- with gruyere even!  Not a lot of space, so better to grab and go during rush hour.  Also, be aware that they're cooking with care, so don't expect immediate turnaround.  If you want mcdonalds speed, look for the arches elsewhere.  That said, they weren't slow, maybe 5-10 mins.  Thumbs way up!

I like my scrambled eggs well done enough to avoid any gooey wetness to the eggs at all.   I usually end up with over cooked dry hard scrambled eggs.  Not here! They prepared my eggs so perfectly I was amazed.  They were fluffy and light, without a spot of rawness anywhere.  Delicious.The menu is quite extensive for such a small place - only about 5 or 6 indoor table and 1 outside but there are more tables and chairs folded off to the side if needed.  Don't be shy, sit with someone if there are unused seats at a table and make new friends!Oh yeah back to the menu... Very creative, fresh and tasty sounding. The chef is right there, you can watch him cook if you like. As you walk in the only menu you see is the one for lunch overhead of the kitchen.  As we were looking for breakfast at first we were disappointed. Lo and behold the menu for breakfast is against the wall beside the cashier!  We both tried the breakfast sandwich which is on a yummy roll with fluffy perfect scrambled eggs and your choice of cheese (mozzarella, gruyere or cheddar) for $4.95, we added ham for $2.50 and hand squeezed oj.  What a find!  We'll definitely be back!

Fried chicken sandwich was fantastic!!  Especially the bun, best bun - fresh and sweet and perfectly toasted.  The slaw that came with it was delish.  Totally crisp and limey, with very thin slices of jalapeno that added the perfect kick.    Prices were good, staff was SO nice, definitely will be going back.  :) More...

I love this place so much!  It is delicious and healthy, super fresh, inventive... i could go on.  There is no better place in the area.  The owners are lovely.  The menu is diverse and everything is delicious.  Today's side salad, which is $5, is a heaping serving of red quinoa, roasted summer squash, spinach, sweet corn, and roasted kumquats.  This place is incredible.  There is almost always seating for lunch, so you can go, grab your local/healthy/organic meal, a glass of their incredible lemonade (roasted stone fruit lemonade?  apricot lemonade?  had both.  loved it.  changes everyday) and sit outside in the sun.  Or, if you're busy at work, you can call in your order in advance and they'll have it ready for you in under 15 minutes. Fantastic addition to the dining scene around here, super grateful to the folks who keep this place serving up some of the yummiest, healthiest fare in Downtown Oakland. More...

Love Cafe 15 for lunch! The salads have a surprise piece of crusty country bread at the bottom that can't be beat. The lemonade is to die for. And the eggs - if you're in the mood for eggs for a late breakfast or a comfort food lunch, are delicious. I just wish they'd bring back the oyster po'boy. More...

I was looking for brunch in the Oakland area after hiking in Muir Woods. The other places I had been Yelp stalking are closed on Mondays. .. #rude. I came across this place which is literally right off the freeway. Parking is a little sketchy (I'm from Honolulu). The menu looked amazing! And as I said I'm visiting from HNL so the prices are super reasonable compared to what I'm used to paying for local, organic, sustainable. We settled on the fried chicken sandwich (we had to know if it was truly better than Bakesale Betty). And the Cafe 15 Salad with a large order of handcut fries. And to drink? Roasted Stonefruit Lemonade. (OMG, Yumm!) Everything was amazing! And yes, the sandwich was as good as Bakesale. (I'm thinking they should try to do something to set it more apart, since the coleslaw was almost a copycat). Would LOVE to go there again, but they're closed on weekends. More...

I love Cafe 15 with all of my stomach. The food is great - what they do with eggs is nothing short of brilliant. I could list all of the other things that I have tried and loved, however that would be the entire menu. Eat here!

A couple of us decided to try out Café 15 for lunch today.  It's located at the corner of 15th and Jefferson at the backside of the State building. The restaurant has about five table inside and tables outside for about 20 people.  Beating the lunch crowd, we checked out the menu consisting of soups/salads, sandwiches and some entrees, placed our orders and were able to score an outside table on this beautiful warm day.  Shortly afterwards, a server brought us our napkins and utensils and then our orders came. I ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich (yelp.com/biz_photos/cafe…).  The sandwich consisted of a chicken breast meat with a lemon mayo in a torpedo roll.  The chicken had a nice crisp in the outside and it was moist in the inside.  It was not oily, but felt the chicken could have used some more seasoning.  The sandwich also came with a side of cabbage slaw. If you like you slaw to be on the vinegary side, then this slaw is for you.I'm glad I finally was able to give Café 15 a try.  Will be back to check out their other menu offerings.  Oh, they also provide free infused water to quench your thirst with your meal.

We wanted to stop for brunch somewhere closeby and we were drawn to Cafe 15 by the high reviews and green outlook. My first impression is the seating area is ridiculously small. For such a popular place, they only seat 12 people. We were able to get a table after "camping" one.Positives:GREAT tasting water. They have an infusion every day. Today's was blood orange and celery root. Wow.The food is excellent. The cheese panini was 5 stars. Excellent. Good coffee. Good soup. Loved the hearty side salad. Even the hamburger was perfect. Negatives: Too small. This is NOT a restaurant. This is a small cafe. Difficulty parking. EXPENSIVE - $35 for lunch for 2Bottom line: If you are walking in downtown Oakland and you want REALLY good food and water and don't mind paying a lot for it, eat here. Five stars because the food was so good - it made the negatives less important. More...

Thrilled that a fresh and delicious place like this exists in downtown oakland! Went here for the second time this week and was great both times. Had the cafe 15 salad with a cup of the daily soup (broc and cheese), and today the eggplant panini. Everything is made fresh when you order with love and care! They also have a wonderful selection homemade of jams and sauces for purchase. I got sour cherry amaretto and heirloom tomato sauce to try! Definitely a great place to check out for lunch with you work in the neighborhood. More...

Smoked ham and gruyere panini was amazing. The split pea soup went above and beyond with finely chopped veggies and other flavors perfectly blended. The drop of yogurt on top went great with it. The owner was also quite nice and there was a wonderful happy atmosphere during lunch in the restaurant between the chefs and the customers. Great prices as well for the quality of food. Definitely coming back again. More...

I recently came to Cafe 15 with my co-workers and I'm really impressed with this restaurant!! :) The Spicy Pulled Pork is sooo juicy, tender and perfectly spicy!  The pulled pork is savory and it's topped with a verde  salsa!! Their portions are very generous too!  I also like that the chef personally serves you your meal!Update - July 22 I think they changed the bread that they were using and decreased the portion size the last time I came.  It was quite disappointing....I'm not quite fond of places that lower their quality when they've become popular all of a sudden..

5 stars for the sliced pickles they give if you order any burger. They are my favorite part of the meal! :DThe lamb burger was a bit salty but still yummy. I also tried the pulled pork sandwich and it was delicious.I've only been here twice, but I never had to wait in line.. probably because it was 2pm. Second time I was here the owner (or at least I think he is the owner) gave me a free fig muffin. The muffin was not overly sweet so it was good. More...

great coffee, cosy environment, delicious (although slightly undercooked - pink all the way through for medium but I'm not complaining) burger, perfect thick cut fries, readily available water, friendly staff (until you stay for too long like I did). overall a perfect spot if you're downtown and want something a touch classier & closer to healthy than the average lunch fare. although it was packed it wasn't too loud to keep a conversation going. I'll go back for sure and if its equally good, I'll update my rating to 5 stars. More...

Don't know why it took me forever to finish this review. I had the Café 15 burger and it was honestly one of the best burgers I've ever had! Super juicy, perfectly cooked, and it was a decent size. I also loved the fresh and colorful vegetables that you could use to garnish the burger with. The fries were also delicious! Perfectly cooked, not greasy whatsoever and they had a very nice seasoning. As for the Café itself I found it to be small and adorable. It has a small seating area indoors but there's also seats outside which is quite nice. The decor is very simple and clean which I love. And the menu layout is also very simple. I really liked the variety of items on their menu as well as the description. I swear I would start craving every item on their menu.My only word of advice is not to come during lunch hours since it does get REALLY busy. I got there just before lunch so the café was empty but within a matter of minutes, literally minutes, the café filled up and there was a line all the way outside just to order.Great little place in Oakland. I wish I lived closer so I could come as often as I want but unfortunately I'm all the way in San Diego. :( More...

Tucked into a little corner with two other cafes, Cafe 15 caters to the lunch crowd. With charming chalkboard menus and fruit infused water, the adorable outdoor seating elevates this tiny little restaurant into a nice place to have a lunch meeting. I ordered the fried chicken sandwich, which arrived looking like it would be less than fabulous. From the outside, it looked like a piece of fried chicken breast was just placed in a french roll.I was pleasantly surprised. When you slice your sandwich in half and take a bite, you are rewarded with a light lemon mayo that works well with the delicate coleslaw and juicy chicken. It's a simple sandwich that goes a long way. It's really very, very delicious. Cafe 15 delights. A friend got the BLTA, which looked amazing. Another friend got the apple salad, which came with a slice of toast that was apparently super delicious once it soaked up all the juices from his salad. And I can't stop thinking about that fried chicken sandwich. More...

Affordable, organic, free-range, grass-fed, DELICIOUS.  Fresh squeezed juices, super fresh salads with homemade dressing. ..YUM.  We've been here several times and there are always good portions and everything is really tasty.  For some reason, every time we go we have a hard time finding it.  It is really tucked in there.  And it gets BUSY.  Or maybe it just seems busy because they have enough seating for about 8 people.  Seriously.  And there is no room to even walk in there when 8 people are sitting down.  Time for a bigger building!So, before you go make sure you know where they are located and double check their hours because they can be kind of funky.  We tried to go twice and they were closed.  Also, bring change for the meter--though if you drive around a bit I think there are some spots nearby that aren't metered.

13 August 2013

Had lunch here today.  Nice big salad - not sure why they put the slice of bread on the bottom - maybe to soak up some of the dressing or to make the salad look bigger?  I would have loved to have had it on the side (maybe even with some butter).  The Cafe 15 salad was good - good sized portion too!  Outdoor seating is in the shade and pretty packed together.  Really polite, friendly service.  Meals served on real dishes with real silverware.  I was disappointed that they gave out all their drinks in plastic cups.  If I could make one suggestion it would be for them to switch to glass cups.

Seriously, where has this place been all my life?  Cafe 15, you are the highlight of my week. Knowing I will see you Friday afternoons is the only thing that prevents me from walking into oncoming traffic Thursday nights after suffering through yet another Groundhog's Day-like week working for asshats in suits with the mental capacity of pitbulls fed an all gunpowder diet. I never know what to order because everything on the menu is just that good. The only downside is that the food is so delicious, I have to take it home to eat so no one will suspect that I'm part bird...I have a tendency to swallow my Cafe 15 meals whole, so the only logical conclusion one could draw from this is that I have a gizzard.Anywho, this place consistently over-delivers.  The food is always seasoned perfectly, cooked perfectly, portioned perfectly.  If only it were open for dinner! Vegetarians, try the eggplant sandwich. Non-vegetarians should try it too.  I love the fact the eggplant isn't breaded. More...

Took my parents here for lunch. They absolutely loved it and so did I.

Their rosemary fries are to die for and their freshly juiced blood orange juice is just perfect. There are so many more things on the menu that I can't wait to try! If your looking for a nice cafe with cute decor, amazing food and friendly faces come here! And if your not, come here anyways you'll be blown away! More...

This is long overdue. I love love love this place. Operated by Chef and his lovely wife. They are the sweetest. I have literally never not liked a meal I have gotten here. Try the double choclate cookie. I have a hard time not ordering the cafe 15 salad with grilled  chicken. It is a bit pricey, but it is a good size and has yummy avacado and grilled bread (genius), and sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts. You get the picture. And my chicken had a good life. What more can I ask for? I have tried their pulled pork sandwich, love it. Also, the grilled peach salad is fantastic. The burger is one of my favorites and they sometimes even have a turkey burger which might be more interesting. I have eaten breakfast here and the sandwhich is good. So all in all, this place is fantastic. My only wish would be that they had an ordering system where you could pay and quick pick up. More...

A cute little cafe located just outside the federal building. Unfortunately it's kind of in an awkward location ( in my opinion - you have to go through the federal building to get there) & the seating is pretty limited (alot there are outdoor seating , the day i was there the wind was all sorts of crazy so it wasn't very pleasant). A couple of things really stood out to me about this Cafe : 1) They use Acme bread (now we all know, Acme is the only way to go!) 2) their Salads are freaking Big & BOMB! 3) their menu is filled with interesting itemsI will definitely be back here soon!

I really enjoying eating here. Yes, it is a very small place, but the quality of the food is hard to beat. Yes, you're also spending a lot of money to eat here too, but it's a small pleasure you should indulge in every once in a while. I strongly recommend the fish sandwich and their breakfast items, I also love their coleslaw (tangy, crispy, tasty). Their menu can be a bit dizzying, don't try to read everything at once or you may have a chance of straining your neck. Go here at lunch hour at your own risk. More...

Really cute little cafe with a New Orleans flair to its menu- options included fried chicken sandwich, burger, fried green tomatoes, a bunch of salads including beets and feta, hand cut fries, and some yummy looking cookies.  I enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich a lot - it cost $10 and had a really surprisingly moist and tender chicken breast only lightly battered, not oily, with tangy lemon mayo and cole slaw.  It was good!  Space is a bit small and there's a bit of a line.

This place is SOLID Americana. I'm so glad I found Cafe 15, for the few times I'm not craving Ethiopian or Ole Ole Burrito Express. Ordered a pulled pork sandwich and fried chicken sandwich with a side of home fries. Both were totally enjoyable; my only complaint was I wish the sandwich roll was slightly less thick so I could taste more of the meat. The side of cole slaw was a welcome addition.Also, THE FRIES. I'm pretty sure it's double fried. The highlight of these bad boys are the herbs that are tossed in - definitely some fried sage and something else? In either case, the fries were AMAZING. Seating is limited indoors, though there's some outside. If it gets too busy, you can always order your meal to go OR take a short walk down the block to get Ole Ole. It's a win-win no matter what.

First meal after touching down in SFO the night before was here!As there were no tables available inside or outside and a line out the door, I knew we had come to the right place for our lunch spot!  I ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich which came with a vinegar-y coleslaw.  I also ordered a Vanilla Cafe Latte & a large order of fries.  One of my friends ordered the turkey panini and the other who's vegan just ordered a simple marinara pasta dish.I ordered first and then proceeded to scope out a table.  Luckily, I was able to snag one as some people were leaving.  The food took some time to prepare and our food came out at different times.  My latte came out first and then the fries so we could all snack on while waiting.  I loved their fries.  The crunchy pieces at the bottom were what we ended up fighting over as the flavor really hit home with every crunch.  The larger fries were also good but I poked around for the smaller ones as I didn't like the big cut of fries that were in the bowl as well.  The large portion ended up being more than enough as 3 girls ( 1 hungry, 2 average) couldn't finish it.  The latte had a good flavor and the vanilla was ever so slightly present but not overwhelmingly so, just the way I like it :)My Fried Chicken Sandwich was pretty good!  After about half though, I scrapped the bun as it wasn't doing anything for me.  I think they could have used a better quality bun here to enhance the experience but the fried chicken was spot on.  It was juicy without being oily.  I would order it again but I would also like to try one of their burgers next time around.My friend who got the turkey panini thought it was good but my vegan friend just thought her pasta dish was okay.  Granted, this was expected and I warned her well beforehand.  She did enjoy the marinara sauce that accompanied the pasta.4 stars - Come for good eats but definitely be ready to sprint towards a table if you want to dine in!  Also, food can be on the pricier side, my meal cost me $20.

for the price paid, cafe 15 serves great upsale american cafe food. it is a $$ kind of place, but i'm not phased by it because if i include into context that much of the food is procured locally, organic, and/or is sustainable, the prices are very fair. the only downside to this place is that because it is popular among people who work in downtown, some of the daily specials run out quick; last time i went, the special i wanted was already out and we got there around 130ish.their salads are enormous and have great flavor, definitely a strong point of this spot. another one of my favorite things about cafe 15 is their side cabbage slaw. it's more vinegar based than mayonnaise, and the vegetables used and the marinade make it a very interesting and savory slaw.favorite dishes: cafe 15 salad, spicy pulled pork sandwich w/ cabbage slaw, and beer-battered fish and chips.

Amazing place. A gem in Oakland as you would expect food this unique and good for the area. Plus it's a semi-hidden corner. I'd give it 4 starts because the place is so small but the food was so good. I had their amazing fries and fried chicken sandwich. Definitely one of the best but my co-workers always get the cafe 15 burger mixed into the ground beef mix and cooked together. Mmmm. I'm coming back. More...

This is definitely a winner. Great spot for sandwiches and salads. Cafe 15 has a nice vibe and the folks are friendly. I had the fried chicken sandwich. Guess everyone has to try to beat that other famous Oaktown chicken sandwich. I'd have to say this one is pretty good, but still didn't beat it. But I would pick this spot to come to, since it has a great range of food. Something for everyone. Not a great spot for a large group, but nice for a lunch for two. I'll be coming here again for sure. More...

Also good things to try here are the Cafe 15 burger, juicy, cheesy and with fresh vegetables.

Really impressive cafe in Oakland, wish I found it sooner:-Cafe 15 salad was surprisingly great even with no dressing, I couldn't find it till I was halfway through the salad and by then I realized it was satisfying even in it's absence.  I think I am having a lovefest with pinenuts lately, they are nestled throughout.  Very simple, ingredients stand alone, a slice of Acme bread included.-Lovely generous grilled salmon on a salad of purple and fingerling potatoes and romanesco, which I don't see often.  -Lovely staff and plenty of seating-Lots of menu options and about a dozen daily specials, good variety of comfort & healthier-Breakfast is served all day-Mostly organic and local ingredientsTotal bill for lunch & dinner: $35 incl tip & tax More...

Cafe 15 was the first place I've ever been in Oakland, and I think it would be really hard to top. We came in for lunch and left wowed. The lady working the counter was super helpful and patient and made several suggestions that we took her up on.My girlfriend ordered the famous fried chicken sandwich and wasn't disappointed. The chicken is super tender and you basically only need to close your lips over it to take a bite. She wasn't crazy about the coleslaw that came with it, but I wolfed it down, so problem solved.I ordered the house burger, medium rare, and they nailed the temperature. It was so tender and juicy and I left really happy.Even the water is pretty amazing, as they threw a ton of different fruit in it to give it a really unique, refreshing taste. More...

I really decided to go all out for lunch today. I needed a pick-me-up as I've been feeling a little down lately. I went for the wild arugula salad with dates, fruit, arugula, feta cheese, and added grilled chicken. Toast is also included.Wild arugula has been my new favorite vegetable that I actively hunt for now. I think it's the best thing ever, especially with cheese or fruit. This salad had both. BOOM.Toast and grilled chicken were great. I got a piece of skin on my chicken, which left like discovering hidden treasure in my salad. Not sure if this was on purpose, but if it is, MAJOR PROPS.Price is up there though. I paid $16+ for my lunch, which I hardly ever do. However, so many of my co-workers tell me to try it at least once, and I am so glad I did. BIG FAN!Charming decor. Street and private paid lot parking. More of an office lunch joint that is behind the State Building in Oakland. More...

I love Cafe 15 because you can literally feel the love in the food that they make. They have great outdoor seating, amazing customer service that is super personable, and a great atmosphere.

My first visit to Cafe 15 was an incredible dining experience. The prices were quite fair for the quality and caliber of the food, & the portion size was more than generous! I can't wait to go back! The chef/owner has a wonderful knack for creating offerings with amazing flavor combinations! He uses local farmers' markets, (organic, when possible). The menu changes to reflect the best of what's available.I had a difficult choice to make when placing my order... I decided on the black truffle brie panini w/house made cherry preserves and sliced almonds. (it just sounded too intriguing a combination to not give it a try... I enjoyed it very much! Even the hand-cut sea salt & herb fries were perfect! Just enough salt and a pinch of rosemary, crisp and not at all greasy! I also had a cup of the eggplant/tomato & fresh basil soup. It was silky-smooth with bright, fresh flavors. I am rarely in Oakland, but am already planning another visit, just to try more of Chef Arash's creations. More...

JUST got back to the office from a lunch break at Cafe 15 and it was so good I had to write a review right away! I had the spicy pulled pork sandwich and an order of their fries! The pulled pork sandwich was delicious; pork very tender with a bit of verde sauce on the top. Bread was good but got a little soggy at the bottom. Coleslaw came with it and I wasn't quite a fan of it but the sandwich made up for it! The sea salt and herb fries were thick cut and hearty without being greasy. A little toooo salty for my taste but I'm sure other people wouldn't mind. My friend had the organic apple salad and it looked and smelled amazing from across the table.  Next time I look forward to trying their burgers, which from reading other reviews, sounds entirely worth the money.

I try not to give five stars very often, but Cafe 15 seriously wows me. It's a little pricy, but I agree that they are incredibly passionate about quality ingredients, great flavors and a really fun menu. They change up the specials daily and the specials tend to have some seasonal influence, so that's cool.I've tried a few of their special paninis, which are always fun. The fried chicken sandwich is delicious - the lemon mayo manages to be super bright without being bitter, it's really nice. My husband enjoyed the spicy pulled pork sandwich (he said it has a "good spicy", with a great jalapeno flavor). The chef seems like a super passionate dude - incredibly friendly, and if you catch him during a downtime he'll chat you up. We were around during the end of the day today, and he even gave us a free apricot and orange zest muffin - we haven't tried it yet (still so full from lunch!) but it smells and looks fantastic.Definitely a must-try during weekday lunches in Oakland! I wish it was open on the weekends - would be a fabulous Saturday lunch date or Sunday brunch! More...

This is one of those places that you TRY not to write a review for because you don't want the whole world to make it THEIR new favorite cafe. Oh well, I'm going to write it anyway...Way more than a fried chicken sandwich spot, Cafe 15 has some of the freshest ingredients in town and a chef who truly cares about the dishes he creates. Quality and quantity will be appreciated with each delicious bite! From the morning offerings enjoy Oakland's own Mr. Espresso coffee (which is I might add, brewed up masterfully), fresh-baked seasonal fruit muffins (incredible!) and a savory old-fashioned hash (I order mine extra crispy with bacon instead of sausage). At lunch the options are limitless with each tantalizing special competing with the solid cafe classics on the menu. Whether it is a chilly herb-accented Gazpacho, a cheesy panini, the house burger with caramelized onions or one of their sumptuously satisfying salads-I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Round out your meal with some fries topped in sea salt and fresh rosemary and a fruity iced tea. It's a family-owned cafe (husband, wife, new baby) with fast service & delightful decor located on a busy corner just outside the Federal Building. Cafe 15 is one of the many reasons for Oakland's growing culinary relevance. More...

this place really deserves six stars! ill start with the only downsides. #1) it can be pricey #2) it's in a small space so it can be very crowded and hard to get in and outaside from those "issues", this place does something that is rare in breakfast/lunch places. .. THEY ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT THE FOOD THEY MAKE! they cooks are all very good at what they do, they use only the best quality seasonal ingredients, and their extensive menu of specials change weekly. because of #1 above, i tend to go maybe only once every two weeks. and to get around #2 i either show up early at about 11am if i am dining in or call my order in... its usually waiting for me when i get there.this truly is a hidden gem... oh and try the water... even that is good!

Nice place downtown for fresh sandwiches.  A little pricy but I'm always longing for yesteryear when lunches were $5 or $6 bucks - hence the 4 not 5 star rating.  Great fries, yummy sandwiches.

The fish and chips were great!  The super crispy chunks of fish done in a light batter were delicious. It came with a huge coleslaw salad and chips! My husband had the potato hash with sausage and eggs on a slice of sour dough bread with chips. My husband and I fought over the chips - crispy little potato wedges tossed with garlic and rosemary. The food just tasted so fresh. The blueberry lemonade was wonderful. More...

For lunch I give this little cafe 5 stars.  It isn't really a dinner place but it has an AMAZING fried chicken sandwich.  It isn't covered in a ton of breading but done just perfectly so that the meat is extremely juicy .  This is my first time and I will be back!The cole slaw is also good.  It has pickled red onions, jalapenos and cilantro so it gives it a different feel but still good.

I went to Cafe during a recent trip to the Bay Area, we were driving around looking for a restaurant and my friend recognized the place and said we had to eat there, so we did & DAM! Cafe 15 is perfect, small, quaint ut open, everything on the menu sounded amazing, very fresh and flavorfull, we ordered with our eyes and we ate everything! The Fried fish sandwhich was crispy chunks of fish, very light, not a heavy batter but super crispy, their coleslaw salad was perfect and i do not like coleslaw! We had the tomate basil soup - it was so pleasing to your taste buds, i could taste both the basil and the tomatoe and neither was over powering... amazing! We had a couscous salad with fried fish, friend zuchinni chunks... as i type this i'm realizing a lot of our food was friend and we left very happy and very full but neither of us had a food comma, neither of us felt heavy or overlly full after... If i lived in Oakland i would easily gain weight or add 3 miles to the run on a weekly basis just so i could enjoy the food. The service was great and the Chef was super friendly and a master in the kitchen.YOU HAVE TO EAT HERE!!! More...

This is my type of place. The menu changes slightly from day to day, but the food stays consistently good and FRESH! You could just taste it, may it be from the fried chicken sandwich, the burger, the eggplant sandwich, fish and chips, salads, etc. The ingredients just scream out FRESH QUALITY GOODNESS!  Even my work has Cafe 15 cater our business meetings/lunches.My favorite? The burger, fries, salad, and the fresh water... why? Burger tastes REAL...like a grassfed home made burger that's charred and cooked to perfection. Moist and juicy in the middle and it seriously leaves you wanting more. I could go ahead and describe everything else but then I'll just make myself hungry again.I'll just say this is my go to spot when my wife decides to join me for lunch during my work week. More...

This place is amazing. One of my favorite things about Cafe 15 is that they have a slight variation to their specials menu daily.

Other options that I recommend are their pastas, pulled pork sandwich, mac & cheese, ham & egg breakfast sandwich. More...

Travelling through the rough and tumble neighborhood of Oakland led me to Cafe 15, a small and quaint little restaurant overshadowed by frighteningly tall buildings. The interior is a nice blend of light greens and overhanging chandeliers, which provides a much needed contrast from the rough and tumble greys and browns that make up the surrounding environment. A quick glance upwards reveals a unique menu, written on mirrors, which makes reading from a distance quite hard, though handheld menus are readily available at the register. I ordered what immediately caught my eye, a fried chicken sandwich. It came out quickly, accompanied unexpectedly by a cole slaw salad. The sandwich itself was just fine, with the lemon mayo providing that slight hint of flavor needed to go along with the chicken. My only gripe was that there wasn't enough greens in the sandwich, although the cole slaw paired well with the lemon mayo. The water was amazing as water could be, since it came from a large jug filled with greens and fruits. The service was friendly and the price was fair. Probably would dare to come back here again, if the opportunity presented itself. More...

What's really great about this place is the sense of upscale food meets casual environment. The chef really knows what he's doing, and menu is varied and interesting and full of specials, and there's something for everyone. In fact, they could easily pare down their offerings and let go of what they're not stellar at.Fresh, delicious ingredients and friendly service. Clean and bright, lots of outdoor seating.We had:5 stars: tomato/pesto soup, served with grilled bread and very flavorful5 stars: pasta w/fava greens, garlic, bread crumbs2 stars: fried fish sandwich. very unexciting bread. very unexciting fried fish. really great cole slaw accompaniment but wouldn't get sandwich again.Definitely we'll return!

I've been wanting to try Cafe 15 for quite awhile and popped in yesterday afternoon for some lunch with the boyfriend. It's an adorable little spot - if I ever take my mom here when she visits she'll most certainly swoon over how homey and quaint it feels. We both ordered the fried chicken sandwich - it is most definitely inspired by the infamous Bakesale Betty's 'wich (coleslaw included) and I have to say not quite as good. Delicious, for sure, but not as good as the double B. I ordered a latte with it and that was insanely divine. The staff is speedy and attentive. My only real issue with this spot is that it's incredibly small and there are not a lot of tables (6 if I remember correctly, seating 3 at the most). I wouldn't say you're guaranteed a spot to sit when you come in. When we were eating I noticed a lot of people had to get their orders to go. As long as you're prepared for that I think you can look past it and plan accordingly to come at a time when you can wait. I'll definitely be back and am looking forward to trying out some other goodies. More...

Cute little cafe that is much needed for down town Oakland.Many people claimed this place is expensive. I think otherwise, for what you get, it is solid and you can walk out under $10. That's important.The decor is lovely with nice white wood chair with all the utensil and napkin organized in the middle of the table. The kitchen is fully open, thus created a nice home made feel to this little place.The selection of daily special are well thought out and coincide with what's in season. Keep up the good job!

Inject some gourmet into your day!This is as good as it gets in DTO. A good place to have lunch with a friend. The prices might seem a little high for a place without table service (~$10 for a salad or sandwich), but the food is thoughtful and high quality. Also, the portions are quite filling.I definitely recommend checking their daily specials on Twitter or Facebook and calling your order in. The line gets pretty long during lunch, and it takes time for the kitchen to prepare your order, so you could easily be waiting 20 minutes if you just walk in.My favorites: Cafe 15 burger (VERY good) and the Cafe 15 salad (without goat cheese). Their different soups and paninis are also worth trying, if you are in a cheesy mood. Sometimes they are a little too greasy or salty, but it's still good solid food, and I love that half of their menu changes every day.4.5* rounded up to 5* because I think it's an amazing option to have in the area.

Pros: Amazing healthy mostly organic foodLocally owned family businessEco-friendlyCons:A little pricey, except to pay $15 for burger fries soda comboSeating may be limitedI have eaten here dozens of times and have the punch card to prove it. It is my favorite place to eat in Downtown Oakland. I bring my reps and visitors here when I treat them to lunch.The pasta, sandwiches, burgers, and salads are amazing. I always try something new because I am never disappointed. I also love that it is a husband & wife duo running the place. The husband is the head chef and the wife runs the register, and is due for a baby any day now!Very friendly staff.If you go during the lunch hour, expect crowds (duh). Not sure why other people rated it so poorly because of this. It is packed for a reason!! There is limited seating inside, but there are tables outside. More...

Downtown Oakland and looking for some tasty burgers. I saw the yelp reviews and the menu items were adding up to a potential bit of yummy. My nose confirmed my hunch as we walked in the joint. Went for the house burger with bits of onion and bacon mixed in the Niman Ranch chuck (topped with cheddar and caramelized onions). I added in a helping of avocado to take it to bliss. It was just what my tongue was looking for and I snarfled it right up (and ate the second half of my wife's for dinner). Washed down with a pear-lemonade that was super tart and delish. Why the minus one star you say? Well, the ordering process was a bit flummoxed and I really wanted to enjoy their fresh cut, sea salt fries. But even though I asked a couple of times, it didn't make it on the ticket. As I got it to go, I never noticed until it was too late. Their menu seemed to have a bunch of goodies on there though. So next time I'm in the area, I'll be heading their way to find out about those fries ... and maybe that super spicy pulled pork sando. Ummmmm. More...

Very nice little cafe on the corner of a small driveway up to the fed building. It's also mostly covered with scaffolding now because of some construction. This place seems very popular during the lunch hour, and the dining room inside is fairly small. Food feels very nouveau yet homey. I had their fried chicken sandwich and it was very good, however it was on the salty side. Probably it was from the good helping of lemon while it was battered or cooked. The slaw that accompanied it was the best I've ever had, with a nice vinagrette, pickled onions. A+I've also had their house burger at another time, and it was cooked medium rare to the T. Nice pink center, super juicy and flavorful. Too bad the fries don't come with it! Extra side, but worth it. Rosemary and oregano all over it. Can be restaurant prices, but is just as good. More...

Very cute cafe somewhat hidden right now by construction. Got the eggplant sandwich to go, ate half for lunch, the other half for lunch the next day. ...definitely hearty. Great flavors and the eggplant was definitely cooked enough - I hate it when eggplant is still a bit "al dente" read: bitter.Saw someone's photos of fried green tomatoes....when the heck are those available? I'd drive 10 miles for that! But since my kids go to school down the street...I don't have to....just let me know when they're on the menu! More...

J
24 October 2011

Update:  still excellent.  The "fixed" base menu has gotten slightly smaller, and there are even more daily specials now.  Ingredient quality remains their hallmark -- it is just superb.  The chef/owner hovers over every plate that comes out, and the results far exceed what you'd expect for a standard lunch spot. Prices have gone up, for sure.  But I nonetheless feel the prices accurately reflect what you're getting.  Significantly, there are still plenty of dishes -- concentrated on the "fixed" menu -- where the prices are VERY reasonable and the food superb.Cafe 15 is no longer a secret, and the lines are longer...but somehow the tables keep turning over.  There always seems to be a seat just in time.

I really, really, really like this place. It probably is one of my favorite lunch spots in downtown Oakland. I used to pass it all the time when I would hang out here but decided to only recently give it a try. (I probably tried it for the first time four months ago). Anyway, I have never really been disappointed going here. My mom thinks it's a little pricey but the food is such great quality that I honestly don't mind. She's like, "You wanna eat here again?" WHY NOT MA. WHY. NOT. So I've tried a bunch of things. I usually buy lunch for my mom, sister and brother and we always eat off of each others' plates. I think their fried chicken sandwich is good. I prefer it to Bakesale Bettys. (I am in love with their cole slaw here at Cafe 15. I'm not a big fan of mayo based dressings so this cilantro, jalapeno, vinaigrette is mighty tasty.) Their cod sandwich is good, and so are their burgers. I had the pulled pork sammy and that was delicious as well. We always like to get a couple orders of the rosemary fries because they're soooo good. Also, sometimes they serve a fritto misto and ugh. fried squash blossoms? yes, always. The last time I went the boyfriend got the fish and chips, we shared an order of the fried green tomatoes (seriously, they know how to fry stuff here.) and I got the "french kiss" sandwich. It was basically a beef tongue sandwich, and DAAAAYYUUMN. It was delicious. The guy who brought it out was like, "this is my favorite". Duh, how can it not be? Our meal was very enjoyable. So if I'm feeding my family, it can be upwards of $50 or $60 dollars, but then again we get a lot of food. I think with the significant other and I went it was 30 bucks. But you pay for quality, right? They're always really nice there, and I really enjoy their daily specials. Their daily specials are like a whole extra page onto their menu. The only reason why I couldn't give them 5 stars is because sometimes their food is a a bit salty. Lucky for me, I like salt. But some of my family members are sensitive to salt so, meh. But I really dig this place. totes. tons. More...

7 October 2011

I really like the chicken sandwich. My partner and I both had it and thought it was very different from Bakesale Bettie's, but delightfully so. We also had the coleslaw which was too salty to eat. The lemonade was to die for. Best of all, they have a selection of jams and I got a caramelized Meyer lemon jam that is probably the best jam I have ever eaten in my life. It is ridiculously delicious. Would give this 5 stars, but I just don't like sitting that close the police station. I'll be going back, for sure! More...

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in all of downtown Oakland. Of course you can see it's good given the very long lines. Everything here is so tasty and delicious. Lots of vegetarian options!

This was very good. I got basic cheeseburger (traditional) I liked how they don't add mayonnaise or any dressing on it and they ask if u want it on the side. Also, the simple mixed greens salad was good - very light on the dressing. They forgot to put cheese on my burger so I got a small free plate of fried potatoes & zucchinis which were also delicious. The burger itself very well seasoned and delicious, buns are really good as well. Fresh toppings. Their water is infused with fruits & vegetables in a very pretty jar. :) definitely makes you want to skip the soda. The cook was also very nice and personable. He came out and socialized/chatted with customers, including me ;) Overall a 9 out of 10. More...

This is a fantastic lunch spot in downtown Oakland. Their friend chicken sandwich definitely rivals BSB and they make terrific salads, desserts, agua fresco's, . They have good service - though my only complaint would be that their space is way too small. I usually only get take out because it is so tough to get a table. They only have a Facebook page - so look their for daily specials. Everything is natural or organic - so be prepared to pay a little more than usual for lunch. It's worth it! More...

I just started working in Downtown Oakland so I'm getting a lot of new of experiences with several eateries in the area.  A lot of my co-workers frequent Cafe 15 for lunch and I have heard such great things about this place.  I decided to accompany some my coworkers to the place and I had the Oyster Po-Boy.  It was very good and I would definitely order it again.  The Cole Slaw, however, was AMAZING!  It's not like traditional slaw that you would get from KFC but it's a house slaw that you uses a cilantro vinaigrette.Overall it was a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to going back.

Went here with a co-worker today and was delighted with my lunch. Had pasta with homemade fennel sausage and chile flakes. I rarely get pasta but was not disappointed with this. We shared a special the fritto misto - and it was comprised of two female squash blossoms with  small squashes attached, two okras and small artichoke pieces. It was all very good. The food isn't inexpensive but I've paid more for a lousy lunch at Whole Foods and this was tasty and made with sustainable food. Staff (including the owner) were all very friendly but not intrusive or my new BFF.  I will be back. More...

My co-workers and I eat here at least a few times a month.  I really can't say I've had a bad meal here.  The Cafe 15 burger is awesome, I love the hash with homemade fennel sausage and eggs, the fish and chips are really light and not oily. ..I could go on.  The owner is always friendly and immediately offered us a free dessert when she realized that they had mixed up our order and we had to wait too long.  A bit of advice, though, the place is small and unless the weather's great don't expect to get a seat unless you're there early or get lucky.  The line can grow after 12:15 also.  I don't knock them down for this, though, because you can't really knock a star because they're busy (unless they didn't handle it well).

Love the food philosophy (local, organic, sustainable, yada yada) and the food, but my wallet doesn't like the pricing. With salads starting between $9. 95 and then trying to add chicken at $3.95 on top of that, I'm almost out $15-$17 on salad alone. One of those places to not eat at everyday, but perhaps for the occasional splurge--at least for me. More...

I just ate a Roasted Cabbage Coriander Soup and a Prosciutto Sandwich w/ Mozzarella and Sun-dried Tomatoes today and was just in awe.  Wow!  It was good and not expensive at all.  What could make this meal better?  A good refreshment?  They have Boylan's Root Beer.  Try it, you'll like it!  A bowl of the soup was $4.95 and the sandwich was $9.95.  The pickle slices, put on the side, that came with the prosciutto sandwich, was incredible.  The people that work here are also cool and genuinely nice.  The place is small but it's a great place to get a quick bite to eat.  The food is hot, made-to-order, and cooked with fresh ingredients.  If they have other great dishes here then sign me up for the long haul because my first food experience here was nothing short of fantastic.

Cafe 15 is my favorite lunch spot in downtown Oakland.  This lovely little cafe focuses on fast food prepared with high quality local and seasonal ingredients.  The regular menu features sandwiches and salads.  I've tried almost all of their burgers and sandwiches and they are all very good.  As good or better than other sandwich shops.  I prefer the spicier cole slaw at Bakesale Betty but my wife prefers the milder Cafe 15 version, so it's a matter of preference.  The salads are a mound of fresh vegetables.  Beautifully done.But it's in the Daily Special menu that this place really shines.  Unlike other "cafes", the items here actually change depending on the fresh ingredients that the chef has procured.  The specials menu usually features: an entree like pan-seared fish on a bed of vegetables; some kind of pasta; soup; and sides.  We almost always get a side.  They're so good.  Check their FaceBook page.In keeping with their vision, the fish are all environmentally friendly and their to-go containers are all compostable.  It's obvious that the husband and wife team love this restaurant and their friendliness makes this an inviting restaurant.

Seriously, one of my happiest, tastiest, and all around greatest lunch place finds. Friendly service, nice modern-rustic decor, and absolutely great-tasting, fresh food. Have been here twice so far and I've tied the pulled pork sandwich, the fried chicken sandwich, and the french fries. The pork was moist, rich in smoky bbq flavor (and not too sweet) and the chicken sandwich, well, this might be anathema on Oakland Yelp, but I will say it, it's the best fried chicken sandwich in the Bay Area! Portions = generous, organic = awesome, and don't forget the slaw -- it's lightly vinegary dressing is the perfect acidic balance to all the sandwiches with which it comes.Cafe 15 is tucked in behind the State building in Downtown and only open during work hours but well worth venturing to even if you don't work right by it. My new fave lunch destination in Oakland. More...

This sweet little treasure is hidden behind the State of California Building. Can I tell you how much I love, love, love going to Cafe 15 when I need a break from my cubicle life at work. But, let's talk about all the wonderfully prepared healthy food. Arash and his wife Loren, spend countless hours per week thinking, shopping and preparing the menu. When most of us are sleeping in on a Saturday and Sunday morning, Arash is up and shopping at the local Farmer's Market's dedication and care. You must try the chicken sandwich-it is definitely a contender and holds its own in this category. My fav of course is the Cafe 15 salad with the grilled chicken. I have yet to be disappointed. But today on this cool Friday, April 22, I was in the mood for a blueberry muffin and that is exactly what I did-got up from my seat and walked over to my happy little spot and got a dose of some goodness.

this place is a killer homegrown kind of food cafe obviously fueled by someones passion and dream. love it. here's the worst nitpicks I can think of for this place. First, their venue is pretty small. Second, this place is aiming on focusing on producing healthy versions of fast food favorites so vegans, vegetarians or folks avoiding gluten and dairy will have to improvise a little here.the good?  the ingredients they use are top shelf. I'm tasting organic or natural quality meats, fruits and veggies in every dish they are putting out. This reason alone gets me coming back considering how few options you have if you are looking for organic eats in this area. If you are avoiding gluten or dairy some menu items are only a few modifications away from being gluten or dairy free. More...

Butternut Squash.Brown Butter.Honey & Brie Panini. ENOUGH SAID. I'm drooling right now while eating my left overs. Omg & the bay leaf iced tea is to die for. && the herb potatoes. Next time your filing lawsuits you MUST checkout this amazing cafe near the state building. More...

This place is amazing and I would go every single day if 1. it wasn't so expensive and 2. it's a further walk from City Center. But the salad. Oh how I dream of that salad. I'm happy to report I was able to recreate it for a recent baby shower, and now I'm stalking their Twitter feed for flavor combination ideas. I hope to go back soon. More...

I met a friend for lunch here, and I was not disappointed. The restaurant itself is small with a couple of tables, but there was a lot of turnover by the time we finished ordering. We were encouraged to wait and dine in. So the stay was nice and accommodating. On to the food.... I choose the Oyster Po' Boy off the special menu. I had been craving some oysters... It was deep fried and top with tarter sauce, just how I enjoy my seafood.  My next trip will include purchasing that big and tasty fried chicken sandwich, which I sampled off my eating buddy.

Just discovered this little gem in downtown Oakland. it's obvious that a lot of care goes into this food -- quality ingredients and very thoughtful and creative menu.  salads, pastas, sandwiches...Not a "cheap" lunch, but good value for the generous portions.  The space is a little tight, but has a warm, light decor. Being able to peek into the kitchen is nice. Service was friendly. Now the good stuff...the Cafe 15 burger with the bacon on the inside blew my mind...in a good way.  Tasted the pulled pork as well, which was a nice amount of spice and not as sweet and tangy as pulled pork can typically be. The fish sandwich looked good too -- i tasted the slaw that comes with it, and it was very good -- light and fresh, but flavorful. The fries looked out of control as well, but I held back.  Next time. More...

You can tell the food is made with luv at Cafe 15. Everything I have tried was really good and made with quality organic ingredients. I really liked the bottled drink selection. From the real Ginger Beer to lavendar water. Again great selection. Im not a huge mr. espresso fan so the lattes and the coffee aren't my fav but everything else is well done. T More...

This place is GOOD.  Really tasty, fresh food, and tons of variety.  The only con is that their inside seating area is really small so if it's not good weather outside... tough to find a spot to sit.

This place is awesome!!!! I check their specials on facebook everyday to see the latest creations they have come up with to tempt me to ignore all other establishments in downtown Oakland. Given it's location, I'd venture to say that this place is best compared with Max's as it is a step up from the rest of it's surrounding all-around-average cafes. That being stated, it's ALMOST as pricey as Max's is so I tend to only treat myself when I see a daily special I cannot resist. Everything is well worth the price though. Stuff I've tried so far is their fried chicken sandwich, fried artichoke hearts with lemon mayo, Pork loin sandwich with balsamic onions, Panini with a whole lotta good cheeses, Bacon-Cheese burger (like with the bacon pieces in the patty!) and most recently a Panini with braised short ribs.... so so good!!They also have a daily drink, usually a variety of other-than-just-lemon-ade, the only one I've tried so far is the Kiwi-Lemonade and it was incredible. Also, in my opinion, i would suggest shying away from their burger. Not at all because its bad (it was actually great), but simply because they have so much more creative options that it would be a shame to pass up.Enjoy! More...

I was looking for a "comfort food" lunch today and happily stumbled upon Cafe 15.  It's a cute little spot and a great place for lunch with a friend, especially if you can snag a seat at one of their tables.  (There's only a few...maybe six).  The menu looks fabulous, great salads and sandwiches and I'm always a fan of restaurants that focus on organic and sustainable ingredients.   I ordered the lemonade (I'm a sucker for fresh made lemonade which was delicious!), the chicken sandwich and their fries.  The chicken sandwich was good, moist and tender.  Just a heads up - If you are a fan of Bake Sale Betty (and who isn't!) keep in mind NOT to compare the two...they're completely different.  The fries were fabulous! Fresh, perfectly fried and perfectly seasoned.  Definitely worth going back for.  All in all, I like this little spot!  I'll definitely be back and look forward to trying other items on the menu.

I love this place.  I found it after getting tired of the same old thing at lunch.  It is so cute and quaint inside.  The food is fantastic.  I am in love with their rosemary fries, and the cafe 15 burger.  Today I had a special with pasta, wild chanterelle mushrooms and parmesan.  It was amazing.  The woman at the counter and the chef are husband and wife and they own the place.  A little pricey, but worth it!

10 January 2011

Everything I've ordered here has been delicious! Even the water tastes better here--they flavor it with cucumbers, lemons etc. And you can tell that they use fresh quality ingredients. It is a bit on the pricey side and there's limited indoor seating, so get there early when it's cold outside. More...

I spend way too much money here buying lunch.  I would complain that this place is pricey, but I keep coming back.  The couple who owns the restaurant is lovely, and the food is divine.  I recommend placing orders by phone so as to avoid a long wait. More...

I've been going to Cafe 15 for about a year pretty consistently so I can honestly say that it's the best place for a great, fresh lunch in Downtown Oakland. I wish they would open a second location in San Francisco so that I could have one near home as well as work.  It's a bit on the pricey side to have it every day - Lunch is usually $8-15 depending on if you get a drink and sides - but it is definitely worth the money.  The best part about this place is their salads. Figs, avocado, blue cheese, goat cheese, prosciutto, grilled peaches, persimmons.... it's all seasonal and all delicious. Plus, they put a big piece of grilled french bread on the bottom of the plate so your fork can pick up all the salad leaves instead of having to jam your fork against the plate or scoop. The bread also soaks up all the extra dressing and cheese....yumm... so it's dual purpose.  Why didn't anyone think of it before?As mentioned by other reviewers, their fried chicken sandwich is better than Bakesale Betty's. It's also served with awesome, mayo-free cole slaw.  I always want hot sauce with it though, so I may start bringing my own.Really everything is good. I love the seasonal sides of roasted or grilled veggies and the soups.  I also tried the tripe dish once, which won me major bonus points with the head chef (and owner?).  The woman who works at the counter is very nice as well. I also like how I can dump my entire tray (minus the plate) into the compost when I'm done, and that they have flavored water.  Ok, that's it, I swear. More...

I felt really bad about giving a negative review in the past.  However; I was really pissed at the service I received as well as being charged for a cup of water.  I decided to give it Cafe 15 another chance.  I went with a friend for lunch and had a much better experience.  The food was great.  The woman behind the counter was much friendlier than previously and they didn't charge me for a cup of water.  After my most recent experience, I'd most definitely go back.

This chicken sandwich is better than Bake Sale Betty! Yeah, i said it. Must be the lemon mayo sauce ... or the fact that their cabbage slaw tastes amazing independently of the sandwich. MUST check this place out. MUST must must. I'm experiencing a food high. More...

This place is great. You can really tell that they invest in quality food items.  My fave is the croquette monsieur and the different pasta of the day. The oyster po'boy and spicy pulled pork sandwich are yummy too. I also really like the owner and staff because they are super nice. More...

As if this place needs another great review.... Basically anything you get here is going to be delicious.. They use heirloom tomatoes in everything and the food is fresh, healthy, yummy and pricey. Not a place to hit up every day , but once in a while it's a nice treat. It's very small inside and they have a few seats outside. More...

I work in the state building and when I find it in my budget (kind of pricey)  I love to visit Cafe 15. I sometimes rotate between breakfast and lunch. I've tried their breakfast potatoes w/apple chicken sausage links & or bacon..Love it! Their fried & grilled chicken sandwich w/fries are great as well. Mayo spread and slaw are good too! I've even been able to reheat the sandwich & fries (when I don't finish it))and it is still pretty good.  I've also had (when on the menu) their grilled chicken caesar salad. Love they use fresh ingredients and it's organic. Never received a punch card though. More...

Really good portions, tasty salads with spiced/sweet nuts and grilled fruit. The special panini with port salut and peach/pear jelly and toasted rosemary might be one of my all time gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches in existence. Lucky for me it is a short walk from the office, and contrary to some of the other reviews, I have never experienced a wait. More...

I LOVE This place. Their food is so good it is practically addictive. So far I have only had their salads and guacamole with home. They are kind of a small place so I wouldn't suggest it for groups of more than 4, but you can get take-out (call ahead, otherwise you have to wait a loooong time)They are always so friendly when I go here and their food really is delicious. A bit pricey ($14 for a salad with chicken) but it is worth it. More...

Loved this place.Went there on a weekday during lunch rush. The service was super fast with great choices on menu.We ordered lamb burger, eggplant sandwich, cold cucumber soup and side of fries. Everything was fresh, made with simple ingredients and full of flavor.Fried heirloom tomatoes is on our list for next time. Freshly made lemonade was a refreshing treat!! More...

I was intorduced to this place by a dear friend and it's quite a find!  A bit pricey, but for once in a while lunch getaway or special outing, it's great!  Being my fist time there, I had a wonderfully big (as in piled-high) salad (no iceburg!) that was delicously hand tossed with just the right amount of house dressing (love that!); strawberries; raspberries; and candied walnuts.  All layed atop a thick piece of bread that was a real treat in the end.  Oh, and the french fries have a special seasoning that is devine! Not a lot of seating, although there are a few outside seats when the weather is nice. More...

I got way more than what I was expecting for $9.33. The Fried Oyster Po'boy was amazing, the roll was fresh they oysters were fried to perfection, and the tarter sauce wasent your typical "mayo with relish". Also the slaw that came with the Po'boy had a wonderful twist. The slaw was free of mayo, very light, and you could taste every ingredient; cabage, red onion, cilantro, lime, and jalapenos (surprisingly with no heat). The flavors reminded me of a Verde sauce. Last but not least the staff gave me a side of the best Fried Green Tomatoes I've ever had. Sometimes you can eat in a spot that has great atmosphere and sub par food, but this place had it all. If charged more on my next visit I would gladly pay it. I was not disapointed!!! More...

Really really nice girl at the register every time. Went for lunch a while back but still remember the lamb burger. My mom who works right there in the state building said she had the most perfectly cooked hard boiled egg ever. Breakfast this morning, simple egg, ham and gruyere sandwich. Dab of ketchup and coffee for me, simple classic and perfect. Another great Oakland place using great local products not fucking with them too much and putting out consistently good food. Cheers!

Our second attempt to find this place and I'm glad we FINALLY did. I just got back from lunch and I can still taste the tender meat melting in my mouth. . MMmMm.. I tried their special burger and the lamb meat and they were both DELICIOUS... The portion size is just enough. I tend to overeat, so thank goodness everything is a la carte. This can be a downfall as far as pricing goes, but the quality makes up for everything. Warning: Please do not mistake this place for the brand new cafe that just opened right down the street. Yes, that place has variety but CAFE 15 is 100x better!!! More...

Had lunch here the other day with my stepmom who works in the State Building.  Great food, cute decor and extremely nice people.  Coleslaw is made with vinegar not mayo.  Made my day!  Fried chicken sando was pretty great as well.  If I ever work in downtown Oakland, I will definitely be visiting this place again.

Maybe I shouldn't be giving this place 5 stars because the only thing I ever order here is the fried chicken sandwich and rosemary fries. But oh, they are yummy good. Everything I've seen anybody else eating has looked good too, but I don't get into Oakland that often and when I do come here I have to have that sandwich. Admittedly I've never been to Bake Sale Betty's so I can't compare. Everything here is fresh and local.Be aware this is a very small little hole in the wall with a few tables inside and a few outside tables. Try not to come right at noon or you might not get  a place to sit.I think I need to go to Oakland again this week......Sorry Cafe 15 but I had to deduct a star as the food hasn't been as good the last few times I've had lunch here.

I can honestly say, Cafe 15 is the BEST (and I mean BEST) food in downtown Oakland.  The chef is unbelieveably talented.  Good, real food made to enhance it's flavor perfectly .  Great specials everyday and you can't go wrong with any of the stand by.  Go once, try anything, go again and try something new!  Before you know it, you'll be there every day, reviewing their specials and truly enjoying your breakfast and lunch!

Cafe 15 is a quaint, laid-back cafe with indoor and outdoor seating in a sketchy neighborhood.  I haven't tried much here, but the Oyster Po'Boy is to die for and truly hits the spot.  I would really eat this every single day if it weren't for my poor, poor arteries.  I'm not a huge fan of chicken sandwiches in general, but one bite of Cafe 15's Fried Chicken sandwich changed my mind.Yeah, it's in a sketchy neighborhood, but if I die with Cafe 15's Oyster Po'Boy sandwich in my mouth, I'll die happy.

I've been here a few times and always order their fries seasoned with sea salt and rosemary.  The chicken burger is delicious and although the prices are high, the food is worth buying every now and then.  I couldn't afford this place on a daily basis, especially after the 15% pay cut/3-day furloug BS.  Anyway, I also like their fresh fruit drinks and water with frest fruit floating in the water jug.  Very refreshing.  The couple/owners are pleasant.  I wish he would make the deep fried artichokes because I can't duplicate it at home.

OK, so I checked out Cafe 15 after all the yelp hype.  And, admittedly, it's a great spot - good food, nice folks, friendly vibe.  It definitely has appeal.I ordered the fried chicken sandwich and, although it was very good, I wasn't totally blown away (a necessary occurrence for five stars!).  It was clearly a well thought out sandwich, though - from the yummy, lemony cole sale that has just the right amount of zing, to the breaded chicken with a hint of spice.  And, the chicken is moist and the right amount for one - as opposed to some others in the area that aren't quite as moist, but give you enough for two complete meals!  Overall, a great place to have lunch.  I would definitely go back and sample something else!

my five stars goes solely to the potato hash with fennel sausage and overeasy egg - so tasty!  i think i've had it around three times, and it is delicious every time.  as jennifer a mentioned, there is a thick layer of bread underneath the hash and egg, so if you don't care for that type of chewiness, i would eat in or ask them to put it on the side.  but seriously, if you don't enjoy this dish, something is wrong with your taste buds.note: cafe 15 is not the speediest (or biggest) of places in downtown oakland, but it is well worth the wait!  just something to keep in mind!

Their potato hash is so comforting and satisfying...it gives me the warm fuzzies thinking about it!  Browned potatoes, italian sausage, onions all topped with a fried egg. ..yum yum!  Under the hash was a piece of chewy bread toast...now, I love chewy bread, but it was a little hard to eat/cut through with the hash.  I kind of would have preferred it not soggy and on the side. The lunch menu looked delicious and the cafe itself was cute, wouldn't mind a second visit! More...

I think that the prices is a little steep for a regular lunch but if you are having a special date, it's perfect.Everything I've ever had at Cafe 15 has been fresh, seasonal and exciting.  And you have to LOVE LOVE a place that makes their own pickles.I wish they had a few more seats - you have to get their early if you want to eat inside - and a bathroom.  No one should have to endure the TSA type security of the state building to use the facilities!

Oyster Po Boy is my favorite thing on the menu. Go a little late, the place is quieter - and the chef comes out to visit. He's Iranian via Amsterdam, now Oaklandish. Nice man, nice restaurant.

I have sort of known about Cafe 15 for a bit; however, I have always turned back because of the line (I know, that's usually a good thing because it means good food inside - I am just impatient! HAHAHA!). Today, I went with a group of co-workers, and I am so glad that I finally stopped in. We were a group of 5, and there was still plenty of seating out front (thankfully, a nice day in Oakland it was). We each ordered individually, and the food was at our table within 10 minutes (all 5 of ours showed up at basically the same time). I got the Cafe 15 burger (medium), which comes on a nice fluffy toasted bun, with cheese and bacon. On the side was a huge tasty piece of romaine lettuce, and to round out the complement of condiments were raw red onions, LOTSA sliced pickles (YUM!!!), and I believe, some sort of thinly sliced pepper? Either way, the burger was delicious, paired with a fresh squeezed organic lemonade for just about $11.00, a good lunch was had, and I will definitely be back! Joe Bob Sez Check it OuT! More...

Cute service *winky*winky*It's been three weeks since I've been here and I am STILL thinking about their cole slaw.
