Wonderful selection of well-roasted beans and coffee drinks. Owner, who often is there, knows his stuff! Can also get local pastries, and next door, there is a cafe with a limited menu. A neighborhood gem that is not part of a larger chain, or any size chain.

We get our home coffee in the Coles store beside the coffee shop. This is a great neighborhood spot on a nice corner - been there for years, not going away any time soon. Good outdoor seating for watching the world go by, and the block of College you can watch is one of the prettiest in Oakland, with several... More

Excellent coffee, full flavored and without the silliness of some of the other places on offer. A real cafe.

I've only tried their house roast (a friend gave me a bag as a gift), and never have I tried worse "specialty" coffee. This coffee is roasted so dark you might as well be drinking water from an ash tray, or roasted wheat for that matter, if it weren't for the fact that they were unable to cover the taste... More

great neighborhood coffee place, I like their seating outside to people watch or just to read my book or magazine or sit and chat with a friend. They sell coffee by the cup or fresh roasted beans from different areas of the world.

Cole's is our go-to source for de-caf coffee beans. Their Max's Decaf is simply better than any other we've found.

If you are visiting the East Bay- and are anywhere near Berkeley or Oakland, Cole's Coffee is the place for your morning brew or afternoon espresso. It is a real coffee house with outdoor seating. They do poached eggs splendidly! And are just doors away from a great bakery. Nice hang in nice hood.

Have been buying coffee here since it opened. Truly the best coffee I have had anywhere. And you can get the delicious La Farrine baked goods without the extra stop. Very cool stretch of Oakland/Berkeley street scene. Make the effort to check both the cafe and the bean shop out - you will not regret it.

I love Cole Coffee at 63rd St and College in Oakland!! Their coffee is the best I found so far in the Bay Area! Coming from Holland, I like my coffee hot, strong and full of flavor and that is just the way they serve it. The street they are on is very nice too. Lots of local stores and... More
