Oakland: Farley’s East; restaurant review


880 South

Farley’s East  33 Grand Ave./Broadway), Uptown, (510) 835-7898.  B-L-D daily; $$.  No reservations. 

My favorite spot in this tiny coffeehouse is the upstairs balcony, which has a row of seats overlooking the action downstairs.  Sidewalk seating is prime in good weather.  The breakfast menu is small--scrambled egg sandwich, frittata of the day, bagel, housemade granola, steel-cut oatmeal, assorted muffins—and the lunch menu features hot panini (I plan to try the prosciutto-fig-arugula-balsamic described as “heavenly” along with a crunchy peanut butter cookie for dessert) and cold sandwiches, including a vegan lentil-cashew hummus with avocado and cucumber.  Several magazine stands provide reading material, and local art entertains the eye.
