The Well

Wellness cafe that serves a variety of elixirs, broths, and gluten free treats.

The Well is a place for people to come together for herbal drinks, food, and apothecary items in North Oakland.

We believe deeply that food is medicine and are working to re-ignite the collective wisdom of our ancestors and to put this traditional knowledge back in the hands of the people. We do this by serving unique and delicious drinks and food, working with small local farmers, hosting workshops and events, providing educational literature on our offerings, and offering meals at affordable prices (including a pay-what-you-can daily meal).

The Well is owned by Anwen, a Chinese-American born and raised in the Bay Area, who believes strongly in the power of community. She is dedicated to stewarding a space that fosters community wellness and resiliency.

The Well offers:

  • herbal drinks
  • nourishing food
  • kava
  • herbal & Chinese tea
  • herbal apothecary & retail shop
  • live music & events
  • wellness workshops
  • local art
  • late night lounge
