A week ago I was invited to attend a media preview of Oeste, a cafe located on Clay between 7th and 8th Streets in Old Oakland. Right next to their bar by the same name, the new cafe offers a variety of sandwiches and salads, special treats like Spanish tortilla and bread pudding, and delicious coffee drinks like the Lavender Oat Milk Latte.

I had the opportunity to try a bit of everything. The salads were made with fresh ingredients, while the sandwiches had the dynamic flavors I like. I really enjoyed the Lavender Oat Milk Latte, whose lavender flavor wasn't overpowering.

I would definitely stop by Oeste the next time I'm looking for brunch in Old Oakland. If you've been to Oeste, what do you recommend trying?

Thanks to Christina of East Bay Dish for the invitation!
