“Those who find their way to our location in Old Oakland experience the communion of California and Mexico and will find comfort in our home-style offerings. We prepare everything from scratch every day, including handmade tortillas, pastries, and complex traditional entrees, as well as seasonal salads and soups. We strive to provide high quality, affordable meals that can be eaten inside or on the go. We serve California wines, beers, and ingredients that use an abundance of high quality, local products.”

Fresh, flavorsome food isn't the only thing you can expect from Cosecha. This Oakland-based restaurant also sources sustainable seafood from the Monterey Fish Market and produce from organic, California farms. They have spent the last three years trying to inform locals of the need for a sustainable food industry. Guests are encouraged to dine in and use real glasses, silverware and plates, eliminating takeout waste in the process.
“It’s a harmonic combination of Mexican and Californian cuisine, located within the historic Swan’s Market in Old Oakland. Tacos with tortillas from scratch, salads, soup, and traditional entrees like braised pork in chile guajillo are on offer from chef/owner Dominica Cisneros-Rice (who also happens to be a Chez Panisse alum). Place your order, grab a number and a seat in the communal dining area, and prepare for flavorful, fresh Mexican food.” –Ellen Fort, Eater
