Cock-A-Doodle Café: Bacon Scramble

Some friends and I went over to the Cock-A-Doodle Cafe in Old Oakland for brunch last weekend.  This cafe is kind of a hole in the wall place off of 8th and Broadway.  There are rainbow flags all over the inside (sorry forgot to take a pic) and it’s a very gay-friendly place to eat (unlike some other places in downtown Oakland). The restaurant is small and narrow and the kitchen is semi-open to the dining area.

The place was packed.  Luckily we got the last table and didn’t have to wait… I ordered the Bacon Scramble which was one of the specials for the day.  It came with home fries and a side of toast (sourdough).

The dish kind of threw me off guard but in an ok way… I was expecting more of just eggs scrambled around with bacon… this was more like a veggie omelet with bacon in it too… there were olives, peppers, green onion, tomatoes and avocado on top.  It was good but not what I expected.  Cost about $11.

My friend got the strawberry ricotta stuffed french toast (with 2 slices of bacon).  I took a bite and it was REALLY GOOD.  I’m not a huge french toast person but I would definitely go back to this place to get this dish.
