Redhawk Coffee Opening Second Location Downtown

One of my first thoughts was, “finally, now I don’t have to go to Oakland for Redhawk.”

Kidding but not. Living in Pittsburgh post-grad has me wanting to spend my time everywhere else but Oakland. Anyway, according to Redhawk’s Instagram stories last night, they’ll be opening in about 2 weeks at 536 Smithfield.

I’m excited to see if the new interior matches the cozy and eclectic one in Oakland. Redhawk started as a food truck and has turned into a permanent location on Meyran Ave, making it the only independently owned coffee shops in Oakland.
