      Awaken Cafe & Roasting

      Browse Products

      To those who think true coffee houses are dead – you haven’t been to Awaken Cafe yet. Consistently voted the Best Cafe in Oakland by East Bay Express readers...


      it's a gathering spot for “Woakland” where regulars and newbs hang out sipping locally roasted hot bevs (or wine and beer) and partaking of the organic food menu. Expect to run into someone you know here, its spaciousness draws in the whole community. Hot tip: order the avo toast on Firebrand sourdough batard – you can thank us later.


      Nothing can hide that smile.
      Cortt Dunlap, Owner
