Friends and Family is a great women-owned and operated cocktail bar in Oakland that also happens to make the best carrot cake I’ve ever tasted in my life. The menu changes occasionally, but based on what I ordered recently - an incredible grilled cheese with mozzarella, spicy sopressata, honey, and balsamic roasted tomatoes, and a bright, herby little gem salad - anything here is bound to be fantastic. I’m also a certified sucker for floral flavors, so it’s no surprise that I absolutely love their Mom’s Rosy Cheeks cocktail, made with vodka, lime, rose, and Peychaud’s.
