Oakland's Haddon Hill Neighborhood

We live in the Haddon Hill neighborhood adjacent to Lake Merritt. Our neighborhood offers many sought after features including quaint tree-lined streets, a variety of architect designed homes from the 20s, 30s and 40s, and easy access to freeways, AC transit Express buses to SF, and BART. We are a short walk to Lakeshore shopping, and minutes from Glenview, Piedmont Avenue and Montclair Village. Some of our favorite things to do include:
  1. Restaurants:
    On Lakeshore Avenue
    • Spettro's, a fun little neighborhood place on Lakeshore next to Starbucks, a short walk down the hill
    • Cafe Mezze, an elegant Italian bistro with a fantastic bar and wonderful food
    • Rolling Dunes, a great place for crepes
    On Grand Avenue
    • Milano, another wonderful Italian place
    • Hunan Village is the best Chinese takeout, not much atmosphere but great food
  2. Peet's Coffee is on Lakeshore and there is also a Starbucks next door to NOah's Bagels
  3. Cafe Arizemendi has to be the best bakery anywhere right across the from Peet's
  4. Lots of other little shops on Lakeshore including:
    • Payprus Card Shop
    • Sees Candy
  5. On Grand Avenue there is a great used and new bookstore called Walden Pond Book at 3316 Grand Avenue.
  6. Our favorite breakfast place is Lynn and Lu's on Grand Avenue.
  7. The best ice cream is, of course, Fenton's Creamery on Piedmont Avenue in a nearby neighborhood.
  8. Long's, Albertson's are on Lakeshore and a new Safeway is on Grand.
  9. We also have a great Farmer's Market every Saturday morning in the newly landscaped park across from the Grand Lake Theatre.
  10. Go to the Grand Lake Theatre on Saturday night and hear the grand organ solo half an hour before the movie begins.
  11. is a great website that tells you all the things to do on and around Lake Merritt including Children's Fairyland.
  12. Davies Tennis Stadium is an Oakland Public Court that is a hidden gem. It is on the Piedmont Oakland border, 198 Oak Road, and has wonderful tennis facilities, a short bike ride away form out our home at the end of Lakeshore Drive.
