The Corner Cafe

Since 2011, The Corner Cafe has served as a comfortable ‘third place’ space where residents of West Oakland and surrounding neighborhoods can connect with one another sharing delicious food, fair-trade coffee, Ms. Diane's famous buttercake, and other tasty treats!

UPDATE: Due to a fire in January 2020, The Corner Cafe is currently closed.  We invite you to support The Corner's Capital Campaign Project today. At this time, we are operating full programming from our community room- a quarter of The Corner building space.

Your contribution will support:

  • Full restoration of The Corner Cafe space/building

  • An addition that will house ADA restrooms, necessary program storage space, and office space to better serve neighbors

  • Creation of a workforce development program focusing on hiring an intergenerational team of neighbors

  • Increase The Corner programs overall capacity to serve


We are ready to grow into the next phase of making The Corner a center for community to grow and thrive for many years to come! Thank you for your care and support of The Corner program!
