First, I was not a Subrosa fan. No need to go into that, just sharing as a reference point. States... what more could you ask for? Excellent coffee and baked goods, and friendly staff. The bread I would put up against Josey Baker - these bakers are talented and hardworking. Please keep it up! I noticed once they left the unsold bread neatly bagged just outside the door, after closing, for the people of Oakland. I like to see this kind of small gesture in support of our full review
I am a long time customer of sub Rosa and when ownership changed to states coffee I was intrigued how things would change. Good news the change was seamless and the coffee and customer service is still just as amazing. I especially love the options of locations ( depending on where I walk my dog in the neighborhood) between the MLK location and 40th street location. Our highlight is getting to talk with the manager Sam, he is always so friendly and kind, not to mention makes full review
Okay, going to come clean - slightly biased review since the first coffee was on the house. Even if I wanted a bite, I was there about 30 minutes before closing so all the baked goods were sold out. Guess I'll have to get the "bread" part of the cafe at another time (aka get here early)! The parklet is still here from the previous cafe and considering it is on a big street like 41st, I always felt like this part of the sidewalk is cozy, if you know what I mean.
