MLK Cafe Parklet
Welcome to the parklet project for the MLK Cafe, located at 3860 Martin Luther King Jr. Way in the Longfellow neighborhood of Oakland, California.
Longfellow is known for its wide variety of transportation options including BART at MacArthur Station, several AC Transit Transbay lines, the Emery-Go-Round, local shuttles, freeway connections and many bike lanes. In fact, the neighborhood has a deep history in public transportation and the MLK Cafe Parklet will pay homage to the rich and vibrant past of this transit corridor.

Buy a Train Ticket. Get a Drink Ticket.
We need $3,000 more to achieve our funding goal and build the parklet. If all goes according plan, we will build the parklet October 17–18, 2015.
We are reaching out to the community for help. The cafe is selling train drink tickets for $20 each. The ticket is a replica of what passengers would have received on the Grove Street line of the Oakland Consolidated Railway. One ticket will be good for one drink of your choice at the MLK Cafe. To redeem: the MLK Cafe will punch the ticket and return it for you to keep as a souvenir. MLK Cafe is an Eritrean restaurant with a full bar.
