Docking at Mosley's Café for Local Breakfast and Fresh Lunch Selections

By Kelly Church

At Mosley's Café, guests can enjoy their breakfast and lunch on the dock of the Grand Marina, or from their boat on the water. The Alameda, CA restaurant overlooks Coast Guard Island and was opened by Christin Shea who realized a need for a good coffee shop. After several years of fighting for permits to open her waterfront eatery, she introduced Mosley's Café.

"I loved the idea of bringing something to where there was nothing," Shea says.

Mosley's Café has a traditional drink menu with coffees (both with and without dairy), hot tea, hot chocolate, juice and soda. The food menu features crepes of all kinds: turkey and gouda, ham and white cheddar, spinach and brie, Nutella and banana with whipped cream, and lemon with whipped cream and Bicycle Coffee. Customers can also order baked goods including muffins, scones, danishes and croissants.

There are also gluten free options at Mosley's Café and Shea says the cheddar, rosemary and garlic biscuit on the gluten free menu is her favorite. Additional gluten free items are the berry friad and snickerdoodle, both made with almond flour, date and coconut balls, and banana bread.

More wholesome breakfast meals include old fashioned omelet, a three egg scramble with toast, cinnamon French toast with whipped cream, and gluten free French toast made with banana bread and topped with whipped cream. For lunch, customers can enjoy made-to-order sandwiches and stuffed croissants.

Shea says she consciously made the decision to serve local ingredients and sustainable Bicycle Coffee because she believes that consumers should have a choice with what and where they eat. The menu's crepes, sandwiches and soups all feature locally grown and all-natural ingredients. Bicycle Coffee is roasted in Oakland and sustainably grown.

"I want my voice to be heard supporting the local guys," Shea says. "I am living proof of what is possible when you support your local business. We thrive as a community when we stick together."
