Restaurants in Oakland, CA

Oakland is big enough to offer a round-the-world roster of restaurants, plain and fancy, traditional and exotic. One of the most unusual is Bakesale Betty’s — unusual not so much because of what’s on the menu but because dining facilities include makeshift sidewalk tables that in fact are ironing boards. Star of Betty’s menu is a fried chicken sandwich: a chewy-crusted bun loaded with coarse-cut cole slaw then piled with pieces of chicken still hot from the fry kettle. For dessert, have strawberry shortcake, pumpkin pie, or bread pudding topped with caramel, whipped cream, and pecans. On the other hand, if you need ice cream for dessert, head over to Fenton’s, an old-fashioned coffee shop / ice cream parlor where the house-churned flavor roster includes divine Swiss milk chocolate.
