A First Taste of Cosecha Cafe in Old Oakland

When the lunchtime sandwich crowd recedes from Ratto’s, Old Oakland can feel semi-deserted, especially on days when the summer fog makes the corner of Washington and Ninth feel as dreary as the Outer Richmond. But things are looking brighter at Swan’s Markeplace, the historic food hall beset by closures. Friday saw the launch of Cosecha Café, the sprawling food stall by Dominica Salomon Rice, and the first tenant in a planned revival of Swan’s. Cosecha (Spanish for “harvest”) serves up a farm-centric taste of Mexico from a glassed-in counter that runs nearly the length of the market’s concrete-floored central hallway.
