Known as one of the oldest neighborhoods in North Oakland, Temescal is filled with plenty of rich history, and is a fun place to call home. Temescal features a variety of real estate options, from cozy condos to spacious two-story homes, and everything in between. Most of the single family homes in the neighborhood were built during the 1910s and 1920s, with all of the charm of the early 20th-century, but with fully renovated interiors and exteriors. If you have been in the market for a North Oakland neighborhood with a vibrant commercial district, recreation centers, and convenient access to public transportation and highways, Temescal is a great place to search.
Two of Temescal’s most popular public facilities are located near the intersection of Shafter Avenue and 45th Street; the most notable of these facilities is the Studio One Arts Center. In addition to its annual array of Art Camps, Studio One Arts Center also provides a variety of classes in the Performing Arts, hands-on crafts, painting, and so much more. Adjacent to the Arts Center is the Temescal Pool, which is a great place for adults and kids who want to swim laps, or simply cool off during the summer months.
When Temescal residents need to shop, run errands or enjoy a meal with friends and family, they usually head to Telegraph Avenue, which serves as the main commercial district of the neighborhood. The restaurants along Telegraph Avenue feature several different ethnic cuisines, as well as a tasty option for any time of day. Some of the notable restaurants include:
The CRO Cafe: Located just east of Telegraph Avenue, along 49th Street, this small cafe offers big flavor via their hand-crafted espresso drinks, pastries, and granola. Their outdoor seating provides the perfect atmosphere for enjoying a morning pick-me-up.
Bird & Buffalo: The name of this popular Thai restaurant may not be what you’d expect, their menu certainly delivers for Thai cuisine enthusiasts. Whether it’s a bowl of Drunken Noodles or something hot off the grill, this is the perfect spot for a tasty lunch or dinner.
Asmara: One of several Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurants in Temescal, Asmara has been serving delicious North-African cuisine since 1985. In addition to their authentic Eritrean dishes, they also offer smoothies, an incredible cocktail menu, and Tej, a homemade honey wine.
MacArthur BART Station is located near the southwest corner of Temescal, and provides convenient access to Downtown Oakland (south) Downtown San Francisco (west), Berkeley (north), and the Coliseum. Plus, there are numerous bus routes that service the Temescal neighborhood, making it simple to travel to nearby neighborhoods such as Bushrod, Emeryville, and Longfellow.
