Fear and Hunger at OB’s Cafe

OB’s Cafe may be a fantastic restaurant, but the owner isn’t interested in your praise.

A food writer friend hipped me to this tiny Cajun spot in Old Oakland, saying that he “didn’t want to take credit or blame” for the suggestion. Intrigued, I did my Internet due diligence. The OB’s website is a slick Mardi Gras party, with Flash animation, zydeco music, and a curious slogan: “There really is such a thing as Southern hospitality which comes with a certain attitude that says ‘Calm down and enjoy yourself.’”
