Staff is always friendly and work as quickly as possible. At the same time, they are happy to spend time explaining what they have on the specials menu that day or what the desserts are. The Timeless coffee is very good; a little strong for me, but I'm not a huge coffee fan. The food is always very tasty and... More

Timeless Coffee does not advertise itself as a vegan cafe, in fact you will likely have a hard time finding the word "vegan" on any of their web pages or social media. Why? Because they don't need to reserve themselves just for the vegan crowd--they are amazing for everyone with a sweet tooth and high expectations for baked goods. BUT,... More

While I didn't indulge in the coffee, the weekend brunch and dessert case was another story. The baked goods looked so amazing I had to ask, just to make sure it was all actually vegan. Yep, everything is and upon closer inspection, the bakers at Timeless must have made a pact with the devil! Everything tastes amazing and you would... More

Vegan conscious folks serving all manner of breakfast and luncheon dishes using no animal by-products, but tasting to those of us not particularly vegetarian, quite good! Service is quick, but sometimes the lines are long. The space is clean and bright and very easy to find on Piedmont Avenue in Oakland. Parking is on the street but in a very... More

Great neighborhood coffee and tea bar with some outside seating. Pastries are all homemade and quite delicious although a tad pricey. Staff very friendly and obvious this is a neighborhood favorite. Staff appears to be on a first name basis with locals.

Visited recently while waiting to pick up my Mom from her doctor's appointment. The cold-brew iced coffee was delicious! And the folks here are very friendly. And the baked good are vegan and tasty.

This is a great Coffee House in an area loaded with Coffee places. They have a vintage coffee roaster and roast their own blends of coffee, definitely the best coffee in Berkeley. The smell of the coffee roasting is awesome. It is vegan so you will not get cream or milk but they have almond milk. The pastries are some... More

This cafe on Piedmont Avenue is a real find. My almond milk latte and brownie were great. I am looking forward to returning so I can try some of their savory items, which seem to be more limited but what I saw today - a "beef" and potato empanada - looked great. They seem to be crowded most of the... More

On Piedmont, there are a ton of coffee places. This one clearly stands out. The roasting is wonderful. The baked goods and pastries are extraordinary. I saw one review from someone who was dismayed about not being told this shop was all-vegan. I guess I can understand that. But even if that isn't your normal cup of tea, the food... More
