Commonwealth Cafe and Public House has been a local favorite in Oakland, California for years. Changing ownership in 2016 didn’t change much about the most popular aspects of the gastropub – a British bar aligned with the traditions of the city of Oakland.
In this episode of Buzzed Bites, Danica and Arthur visit Telegraph Avenue in the Pill Hill neighborhood to taste the best of the CommonWealth menu, including scotch eggs, beanz and toast, bangers and mash, and the vegan sausage roll. They also sip some restaurant industry – and some exclusive-to-CommonWealth – specialties, like the Underberg digestif and Spider Bite lavender cider.
Buzzed Bites video series explores the new, noteworthy, and must-know underground food scene in the Bay Area. Hosts Danica and Arthur visit a local bar or restaurant, with a little extra fun – one of them has to review the new spot sober, while the other has to review it…not sober. Our drunk thoughts are your entertainment.
