Downhill alert: Nomad Cafe in North Oakland on Shattuck

I recently had some service done on my car at Ron's mufflers (excellent by the way) on Shattuck Ave in Oakland.

Which happens do be across the street from Nomad Cafe.

I had gone to Nomad's Cafe a year or so ago and it was a cool, very "green" Cafe with good coffee and food.

Evidently the cafe was sold or leased out last year to some new people that have absolutely no clue on the food service industry.

The lowest quality ingredients served up at high prices.

I was served the worst "food" I have ever had in any cafe or restaurant in the Bay Area in the last 25 years.


Avoid, avoid, avoid like the plague.

Coffee was ok though... but overly priced.

I think their business plan is to gouge everyone to pay for the free WIFI.

So sad!

So many better options less than a mile away.
