The recycled wood floors, mismatched furniture, and quirky decor give Arbor Cafe a comfortable, rustic feeling and an aesthetic that is oh-so-Oakland. Arbor serves a quality selection of pour-overs, and their most coveted drink is their French press. If you’re not feeling coffee, their beer is on tap all day. The entry wall is made entirely of floor-to-ceiling windows, giving the main room a lot of natural lighting, which makes it the perfect place to get some work done. Cal students and young professionals crowd the main room with their laptops, so competition for power outlets is usually fierce.
