Steel Rail


From pastries and coffee every morning, soups, salads and sandwiches from midday on, weekend brunch, and a great rotating selection of local beer and wine on tap — Steel Rail is the place to grab lunch on the go or relax with friends. Steel Rail celebrates the spirit of Oakland as acommunity-focused spot, and by souring premium ingredients from as close to home as we can.

Steel rails have played an important role in Oakland since the late 1800's when west Oakland became the ending point of the Transcontinental Railroad. These rails ensured that goods and services were delivered into the heart of the community, bringing with them growth and opportunity. The workers along the railways helped shape our local community and our nation. Steel Rail is a public house and café that honors Oakland's storied past and celebrates the peopleof Oakland in the heart of Jack London Square.
