Serving Italian-style breakfasts and lunches, Caffè 817 sits on a tree-lined street in Old Oakland and is decorated with the work of select Bay Area artists, such as painters Julie Cohn and Jennifer Perlmutter. The kitchen poaches eggs in a retro Italian steamer, serving them with toasted whole-wheat sourdough bread and corned beef that's cured in-house. During the noon hour, diners lunch on panini, like roast beef with crème fraîche, shallots, and horseradish or portobello mushroom with blue cheese and spinach. Unusual drinks include rosemary lemonade and Mr. Espresso coffees made from beans toasted in an oak-burning roaster.
