Downtown Oakland - who delivers?

I am in the process of opening a new office for my company at 436 14th Street in Oakland.

We have a lot of company meetings that involve catering lunches. In my other office (in Napa), I am usually the one who has to run out and pick-up the food and get it set-up for the meetings, but this may not be possible in Oakland.

I need to figure out what eateries are in the neighborhood for take-out and also that deliver.

This is around City Center.

  1. I am happy to say the restaurant I have mentioned several times recently does have delivery., Chef Edwards, and it's only 1/2 mile for pick up.

      Oh, a bbq place with mac n' cheese1 How is the mac n' cheese? The pulled pork? The ribs? (I will look up your posts as your palate is re-fine!)

      1. re: rccola

        I don't think I was wowed by the mac and cheese(been a while), but did like the beans and really liked the cole slaw which perked up the Piggly Wiggly, a large sandwich for $5. The potato salad profited from a helping of chopped pickles. I am working on my second slab. There is so much to eat I have take it in stages.

        1. re: wolfe

          Really is called the Piggly Wiggly? That's the grocery chain my mother frequented in Chamblee, GA. I thought you were kidding. Must be an homage.

          We used to go to the Pig & Pit in Valdosta for ribs. But no ice cream after. That wouldn't have been kosher.

        In case you didn't follow the lead on my link this might be helpful.

      3. I am not 100% sure they deliver but I think they might, quite nice food and sweets:

        They have a catering menu.

          1. We have catered lunches in my office from time to time and I think all these places deliver, in addition to those already mentioned:

            Brown Couch Cafe (14th/Webster) (sandwiches)
            Espresso Gourmet (14th/Franklin) (dolmas, hummus, lentils & rice, tabbouli, etc.)
            Pizza Rustica (pizza, rotisserie chicken, salads)
            Whole Foods
            Fountain Cafe (yuck)
            La Salsa (yuck)

            1. I'd check out Cafe 15 and Ratto's for sandwiches. Not sure about delivery but both are worth a call given the food.

                This has all been really helpful - thanks. Looks as though you are right, ML8 - neither Cafe 15 nor G.B. Ratto deliver...

                But the leads I've been given here will help me get the office set-up!
