The Southern Cafe, Oakland

This restaurant space on MacArthur between Fruitvale and the Altenheim is again a meat-and-three place. Same name as 5+ years ago, and according to my husband who spoke to the proprietor(s), same people. We had some fabulous fried chicken tonight, accompanied by very good collards, green beans, and black-eyed peas. The only minus is the "cornbread," which resembles yellow cupcakes more than it resembles proper Southern cornbread.
