Core Kitchen is a fast-casual vegan restaurant that provides wholesome and macro-nutrient dense breakfast and lunch items.
Their mission revolves around sustainability and community. They want to nourish the Oakland community through produce based and nutritious meal options. The ingredients are from local farmers and they are organic, gluten-free, sugar free, and oil free.
Core Kitchen integrates their mission into their business practices by using re-purposed and resource efficient building materials. They also fight recidivism by offering ex-felons careers and paying them a livable wage.
Breakfast options include açaí bowls, chia seed pudding, and gluten-free granola. These items are light, yet packed full of energizing nutrients that help you jump-start your day.
Try one of their fresh salads or collard wraps for lunch. If you prefer something more filling, try a hot zoodle entrée such as their Thai Zucchini Bowl. You can also stop in for a refreshing smoothie or coffee drink.
The restaurant is located inside of the Oakland City Center, and is a perfect option for a healthy meal on your way to or from BART.
