Chicken and Waffles?

Many of you who know me know that I love food! If you are looking for a taste of retro East Oakland, look no further.

Today I had lunch with some clients at Merritt Bakery in Oakland. I have had their cakes, but never actually sat down at the restaurant.

The hostess, who called me “hon,” immediately looked at us and with a wink and a smile, said “Feel free to sit wherever!”

We went towards the back. The menu offers a large variety of typical diner food: Fried Chicken (I think there were 4 peices) complete with corn, potatoes, and a salad. Or how about the HUGE Club sandwich with enough meat to feed a family of four.

But that isn’t what people come here for. It’s the house fav: Chicken “n” Waffles.

It comes with 2 pieces of mouth-watering fried chicken and an enormous waffle- all piled on top of each other- and a bottle of syrup on the side. Who can resist this?

Committed to their neighborhood, this downhome diner is a part of Oakland not to be missed. The next time you are taking a walk around the lake, stop by for a piece of pie.
