Brown Sugar Kitchen

Tanya Holland is bringing her interpretation of soul food to West Oakland with the opening of Brown Sugar Kitchen at 2534 Mandela Parkway. Combining her African-American heritage with her formal training at La Vareene in France, Tanya cooks with soul. Delicious, healthy, fresh soul food, Blue Bottle Coffee, wines from California African-American Vintners and South of France, favorite microbrews and some mouth watering baked goods are some of the tempting items at BSK. Because "soul food" emerged at the same time as soul music, music will be an important part of the experience at Brown Sugar Kitchen. The outer cafe design is still in the works so the building is easy to miss but once inside the experience is warm, classy and rich with aromas that give your salivary glands a start. You can check out the BSK menu and take out menu at www.brownsugarkitchen.com. Go treat yourself!
