Brown Sugar Kitchen
Where we've featured it
Brown Sugar Kitchen is open for lunch and dinner, but our favorite meal at this Southern restaurant in Uptown Oakland is weekend brunch - especially when we want to spend quality time with people (and foods) that we like. Everyone else in this place seems to have the same idea - and a craving for flaky biscuits, buttermilk fried chicken, and incredibly light cornmeal waffles - so prepare for crowds and a wait. Service tends to move at a slower pace at Brown Sugar Kitchen, but when you’re having mimosas and beignets in this light-filled space, you won’t want to rush.
Payment platform company Marqueta has partnered with Brown Sugar Kitchen to provide meals to nonprofits supporting homeless communities, foster youth, and low-income families.
