Situated within beautiful Schenley Plaza, The Porch is a come-as-you-are, no reservations restaurant serving the University community, neighborhood regulars, and park users alike. Creating simple, delicious, scratch-made food that we love to cook and eat; The Porch is an authentic everyday experience for a casual meal, a special occasion destination, or a great place to enjoy the sights and sounds of Oakland while unwinding with a cold drink and friends new and old.
