200+ Black-Owned Restaurants Across The Bay Area
Here’s a running list of Bay Area Black-owned restaurants that you can support today.
Written by

One way to show solidarity with the Black community is to put your money straight into Black-owned businesses - or more specifically, ordering from the many Black-owned restaurants across the Bay. That’s why we’ve put together this list of spots that are currently open for takeout, delivery, catering, or outdoor dining. We encourage you to order directly from the restaurant when you can, tip generously, and be kind.

This is not just a list of Black-owned restaurants we should all be supporting today, or tomorrow, or next week. These are restaurants that we should be supporting, always. This guide is just one step, a starting point - we’ll be updating this list continuously. Please email us at sanfrancisco@theinfatuation.com to let us know of restaurants that should be included on this list, and we’ll work to get them added as quickly as possible.

We also acknowledge that this list is nothing new - organizations like Bay Area Black Market and the Bay Area Organization of Black Owned Business Directory have been compiling Black-owned guides for years and are go-to resources for Black-owned restaurant information.

Please also consider donating to organizations fighting for racial justice, like the ACLU, NAACP, Know Your Rights Camp, Black Visions Collective, and Reclaim The Block, as well as Bay Area organizations, like the Bay Area Anti-Repression Committee Bail Fund and People’s Breakfast Oakland.
