Out to Eat: Boot & Shoe Service

A few weeks ago, I had an amazing lunch at Boot & Shoe Service in Oakland with my friend Alix. We met up on a weekday-just the two of us. This was my first experience at the restaurant and it definitely won't be my last. The place is charming as heck & has an incredible menu that changes daily. So many good things to choose from! I simply cannot wait to have a delicious breakfast & dinner here.

So much wood & brick in this space. Something about it reminded me of Sitka & Spruce. 

Also note-Tom Selleck. That made me smile.

When you enter, you order your food up front and find a table in the main dining room.

They give you Alphabet markers so they know where to bring the food. Charming!

Alix & I split everything. I got an iced coffee and we started with Avocado on charred toast with a beet salad.

We share a pizza! This one has greens, olives & cheese. It was awesome. We had their mixed green salad with it.

It wasn't until the food came until I realized everything we ordered was green!

And for dessert, we shared two simple treats.

A beautiful/simple meal over wonderful conversation. What could be better?

    I live dangerously close to Boot & Shoe Service, and have to say, if you like their lunch, their breakfast will make you weak in the knees!
