Farley’s East was a catalyst to the once ghost-town, now thriving neighborhood of Uptown in Oakland. Through its doors and outside on the parklet you will find a pulsing coffeehouse deeply supported by its community.  As demand for their coffee has grown, they have expanded into the space next-store to create a dedicated coffee bar with dual espresso machines! This new coffee focused area of the cafe will be used for cuppings, training, faster customer service, and feature guest roasters in addition their own in-house roasted coffees.
