Art of an edible kind

A word for a cafe in Oakland called the Cock-A-Doodle Cafe. Like many small cafes all over the world it is a patron of the arts, doing its tiny Medici thing by showing the work of local artists while going about its own tasty business of creation. Long known in the Old Oakland neighborhood for great breakfasts, lunches, and weekend brunch, Blanca the chef, Olivier the pastry maker and waiter, and their associates have recently added dinner to the menu. Here's a sampling of the very artistic - and very delicious - art that will arrive at your table. The dessert is Olivier's specialty - the filling is a sort of French comfort food - chocolate with a special twist! I hope you'll pay them a visit - they're at 719 Washington Street between 7th and 8th Streets in Old Oakland which, if you haven't visited lately, has beautiful old buildings and several other very cool restaurants.

I can concur that this restaurant is a wonderful little "find." However, please note that it is on Washington, just below 8th St.
