    has anyone been to the new location since it opened the other day?
    do they have a full bar?

      It opened on Monday. I've not been there, but here's what the press release says about the bar. "Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe in Oakland differs from its Emeryville counterpart in that it has a full service bar offering a selection of classic, contemporary and original cocktails, an eclectic wine list and local beer. Also available are various specialty coffee drinks and an array of milkshakes including the Shakin’ Jesse Milkshake made with Guinness Stout, chocolate Ice cream and espresso."

        ooh the jesse milkshake sounds fabulous. but between the espresso and the stout, it's hard to figure out what time of day is best to enjoy it!

            there is no inappropriate time of day for a Shakin' Jesse.

        do people really like the food here? (i mean the old one.) i found their breakfasts to be greasy and tasteless, and sloppily prepared. on 3 occasions. plus overpriced. bah humbug.
