Let’s take a moment for the most important part of any day, food.

Here’s a running list of our holy grail food spots we feel should be on your radar while in Oakland:


For those of the non-meat eating variety, this place is an all vegan, soul food spot. Sophia Flores, our Digital Media Organizer and pescatarian/weekday vegetarian, swears by this spot. Vegan mac ’n’ cheese, cinnamon brown sugar yams, okra gumbo, a country style seitan steak plate, and more. Hungry yet?

The UC order: Sophia’s order is the combo plate with BBQ tofu, mac ‘n’ cheese, red boy beans & rice, and a piece of cornbread. Just enough for 1st and 2nd lunch.


At UpperCloud, our universal language is food. We’re always on the lookout for new good eats, good drinks, and good company. Have a favorite spot you feel we should know about? Let’s connect together over a dish (or two).
