                  Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
                  We love the diversity and so many cultures in this wonderful neighborhood. It's cool to be so close to so many fabulous areas, attractions, restaurants and activities in the Laurel and just a few minutes away to the many other awesome neighborhoods and tourist areas in Oakland. It can be hard to choose what to do, see or eat on a given day and that's what makes the Laurel District and Oakland such a cool place to visit. We also love being only 15 minutes away from the University of California, Berkeley, Emeryville with it's trendy Emery Bay Shopping Plaza, just 20-30 minutes away from San Francisco, Fremont, Union City and an hour from San Jose. There are so many choices to eat whatever type of food you might fancy, great music venues, concerts, Silicon Valley, movie theaters, shopping, site-seeing, waterfronts, fantastic festivals and an amazing selection of whatever tastes, hobbies or activities anyone of any age would enjoy!
