Reviews for People's Cafe

This place seemed really mismanaged when I went (sometime last year). Here's a list of observations I made in chronological order, trivial annoyances at first but slowly escalating, like a frog in a pot of water being brought to boil: 1. They were out of chicken, so I got a soyrizo breakfast burrito 2. They had exactly one cook at first 3. There was no line, but I eventually noticed that nearly everyone in the place who was there before me had no food and had a number on full review

Wonderful food! We've tried the ramen, some baked goods, and chai. I'm not much of a kombucha person, but the samples I had were good. The person next to me last time was eating an açaí bowl that looked tasty. I'll try it next time. Great ambiance for working a few hours or after a class at Yoga for the People. My new favorite spot in Berkeley.

My partner and I come here all the time for the good vegan eats! They have more options than any cafe in town and the friendliest staff. Except the one guy who told us we couldn’t bring in outside food and who stared at us angrily as we ate outside, before coming in.
