Restaurant Review: Timeless Coffee Roasters in Oakland, CA

Timeless Coffee 

On our road trip up to NorCal for vacation, we drove through the night so we could arrive at Timeless Coffee Roasters in Oakland, California for breakfast! It was my first time visiting Timeless, and even after a long night of driving, I was soooooo excited to finally try out this all-vegan cafe that serves up breakfast, baked goodies, and, of course, coffee!

Loved the interior of Timeless!

We arrived around 9am, and the place was packed, with a long line at the counter. That only gave us more time to ogle the pastries behind the counter (such cakes! such pastries! so many other goodies!) and admire the cute decor. Gah, if I lived in Oakland I would be here every day!

 Tempting treats in the dessert case!

Vegan Quiche! Vegan Frittata! OMG!

Vegan Cheddar Bacon Scones and Peach and Almond Scones!

We finally got to the front of the line and ordered a vegan quiche, two cheddar bacon scones, a strawberry cheesecake cup, their version of the Twinkie, and some iced coffee. I'm surprised I restrained myself so much when I wanted to get everything they had! However, we did still have a lot of driving to do, so I limited myself a bit.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cup! Half-eaten because it was so good 
and I couldn't snap a pic in time!

We sat outside for a while and enjoyed the iced coffee, cheddar bacon scones, and the strawberry cheesecake cup! The scones were yummy, but the cheesecake cup was definitely the highlight! It was so creamy and flavorful...Mister Spooky was a huge fan and couldn't stop raving about these the whole trip - we wished they would have survive the rest of the trip so we could buy a bunch to take with us!

I saved the quiche and Twinkie for later, but these were also excellent! I had the quiche the next morning for breakfast and it was incredible!! I just reheated it in the microwave for a few minutes, and reveled in its flaky crust and tasty filling! Mister Spooky was also a big fan of this one as well. The Twinkie I enjoyed another night after dinner - the cake as so moist and the creamy filling was light and airy! It was wayyyy better than what I remember Hostess Twinkies tasting like!

The quiche traveled really well and was the perfect breakfast
the next day!

Timeless Coffee Roasters makes me want to move to Oakland just so I can enjoy their spectacular treats on a regular basis! Bonus is that they are super close to Mountain View Cemetery, so you can get some coffee and treats, then head up the hill and wander around the massive cemetery! We stopped off briefly at the cemetery, but sadly weren't able to stay long. Definitely want to explore it more next time I stop off at Timeless!


  1. we stop at timeless then the cemetery when we are in oakland. we need sugar fuel to walk the rows. i usually get a cookie sandwich or brownie & the boyfriend gets cheezecake or the cheezecake cup.

    1. It's in such a perfect location! I'm sure I would be there ALL the time if I lived up there! If I swing back up there anytime soon I should let you know so you can show me all the best plots in the cemetery! :)

  2. mmmmm cheddar bacon! It has to be good with that combo!

    1. Yes, it was so good and the best part is that no animals were harmed as everything is vegan there!
