Celebrate With Us!

For the past 8 years Farley's East has served up its unique brand of Community In a Cup here in Uptown Oakland. After eight successful years, we decided to expand to better meet the community's needs. We now have a remodeled cafe for you to enjoy with more space, more food offerings, beer and wine on tap and a "grab & go" case with a second register to get you out the door faster if that's your speed. 

We have worked to curate an offering that balances our food and community values and tastes. The food at Farley's is designed to feed community, not just literally, but figuratively as well. We also want your feedback so let us know if there's something you would like to see. Thanks for being such awesome customers. It's our pleasure to serve you and be a part of this community with you. In that spirit, we are having a Grand Reopening party on Friday, July 14 at 7pm. There will be door prizes, give-aways, complimentary appetizers and drink specials! We hope you can join us for this special celebration.

Coffee Corner    



Greetings coffee lovers!

Hey everybody!

Right now, our in-house roast consists of Sipi Falls, an organic Ugandan coffee, Kochere from Ethiopia, and Lintong from Sumatra. The Uganda and Ethiopia combine together to create uplifting, refreshing sweet fruit and floral notes: Hibiscus, mint, banana bread. The Sumatra is roasted darker than the African beans to add boldness, body, and some chocolaty / earthy notes to balance out all the subtle high notes.

Try it out as either a cup of drip or an espresso shot! Get in a conversation with our barista team! Admire our sweet new espresso bar set up at Farley's East if you're on the East Bay end of things!

Happy sipping,

All of my prints use what is referred to as the ‘reduction’ process, which derives its name from the block being carved away (reduced) as each new color is added to the print. When thinking of this, it might be helpful to imagine that each color is layered on top of the next, and the only portion of the color(s) below that are visible would be the areas carved away (removed) prior to printing each subsequent color. 

As a result of this process, the block is destroyed with only the final ‘run’ (usually black) usable by the end, so the edition number for each print is truly all that will ever exist. The majority of the prints I create have between 8-10 colors used (sometimes more), so when viewing a final print, it is worthwhile to note that you are actually looking at as many as ten impressions of the block layered on top of each other to comprise the final imagery.
My work focuses on subject matter incorporating both urban life and the environment, and the occasionally tenuous relationship between the two. The medium of woodblock printing is itself an extension of this relationship; working in this medium is subject to numerous variables inherent to carving and printing from wood. Above all, I seek to infuse contemporary sensibilities within what many would consider to be an antiquated art form.
This collection showcases both recent work and a handful of old favorites of mine - I hope you enjoy, and feel free to drop me a line!

From the beginning, my life has been about art. my parents, both passionate and eccentric artists, helped to form my appreciation at an early age. since i can remember, i had a fascination with creating anything image driven, which instantly led me to fall in love with photography as a medium. photo was my main study and body of work for some time, and eventually i went to work with opportunities in exhibition, publications, and fashion.
More recently, my paintings--which began as a relaxing little “hobby”--have grown into quite an enterprise. i have been busy consistently now for the past several years working up a recipe that aesthetically draws from multiple mediums (photo, acrylics, screen printing, and resin) to create pop-iconic and retrospective silhouettes dimensionalized atop vibrant patterns. one of the more important parts of the “recipe” is the process, particularly how its efficiency allows me to produce at once great quantities of repeat imagery (also part of the aesthetic). the works then translate individually, but with even more impact in groupings. while the efficiency not only broadens translation, it more importantly allows me to produce works that are obtainable by even the most modest collector.
My works are currently found in more than a dozen bay area boutiques and are featured in magazine publications, record albums, and wine labels. i also offer custom work by commission.

We're passionate about helping families who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless into housing stability,emotional and physical health, and economic self-sufficiency. 

Compass was founded in 1914 as Travelers' Aid San Francisco to provide assistance to the 19 million newcomers who visited the city of San Francisco for the 1915 World's Fair. We served thousands of immigrants of all races and creeds in our early years and expanded our reach to needy youth during the Great Depression, international refugees during WWII, and homeless families in the latter part of the 20th century.

We're proud of our 100+ year legacy of serving all the people of San Francisco.

Family Builders by Adoption is a local nonprofit organization that believes every child – regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, or medical, physical or emotional status – has the right to grow up in a permanent, nurturing family. Family Builders educates the community about the needs of children in foster care, advocates on their behalf, and places children with permanent, secure families through adoption and other forms of permanence. We work with birth, foster, and adoptive parents of LGBT youth to ensure they have the knowledge and resources to help their children thrive, and provide resources and support to all families impacted by the foster care system. We have programs and staff dedicated to helping populations overrepresented in foster care - with the goal that no child will leave the foster care system without a permanent, loving and caring parent.
