Alameda got on EB Food Map!!!
Alameda’s Cafe Q Makes a ‘Top Ten’ List:
Year 1!

A year ago, on this date 1/18/12, we opened our door. Much had changed since then. We quickly evolved from a deli cafe with ready-made model into a quick-service restaurant; largely by customer demand. Our weekday lunch time dining had evolved from a high-school cafeteria into a relaxed business-rendezvous place.

We reviewed and revised our menu to reflect our new focus and introduced dinner menu along with local wine & beer selection under the direction of our new partner, Chef Jesse Branstetter, former co-founder of Oakland Chop Bar. The Q[uality] of our food is now under Jesse’s keenly, watchful eyes.

We are happy to acknowledge that with all these evolution throughout the year, we are still able to maintain our mission of bringing to Alameda a serious eatery with focus on healthy, wholesome cooking, using organic and/or locally sourced products. We still make 98% of our food from scratch, with the exception of a few condiments.

Lastly, but most importantly, we could not have gotten this far without your support. Your continued patronage and words of encouragement meant so much to us. THANK YOU!

With one year under our belt, our progress continues to evolve. In the next coming weeks, please keep an eye and spread the word, we will introduce signature prix-fixe dinner menus, along with occasional music events. Jesse’s creativity will be putting in higher gear w/ our beloved, little kitchen!!! We are looking forward to seeing you then.

With our heartfelt and warmest appreciation,
All of us @ Cafe Q
