Yali’s Café is a popular independently-owned and operated café located next to UC Berkeley and between downtown Berkeley BART and the Gourmet Ghetto. Locals, visitors, and members of the university community have come to Yali’s regularly to enjoy delicious coffee and fare since 1999. We serve custom roasted, expertly prepared coffee and espresso, as well as homemade granola, desserts, panini, soups, and salads. We source the highest quality ingredients from local vendors and farmers. Yali’s was among the first businesses in the Bay Area to use 100% biodegradable packaging and operate as a green business.Yali’s Café has become a second office, meeting space and living room for students, faculty and neighbors. Countless ideas, connections, dissertations, and proposals have been hatched here. We love building relationships with our regulars who come to Yali’s every day for dependably great coffee and homemade food in an unpretentious atmosphere.
