The Well is a place for people to come together for nourishing food and drinks in North Oakland. The owner, Anwen, has created a menu inspired by her Chinese ancestry, Bay Area upbringing, and background in herbal studies. At The Well, we strive to create an environment where everyone has a seat at the table. Our hope is to create offerings that facilitate deeper connection and nourishment for ourselves, our communities, and the earth. We believe in reciprocal relationships and community resiliency, which is why we offer a pay-what-you-can meal option every day. We source from local farmers, chefs, makers, and herbalists. We showcase local artists, host a weekly open mic, and put on special community events. We offer a retail line centered around wellness and resiliency. Please join us as we say YES to the power of plants and to the power of community.
