Newcomers will find an abundance of attractive and affordable housing options spread throughout this beautiful region, and they’re located within easy reach of neighboring cities Oakland and San Francisco. A vibrant and family-oriented town in the East Bay area of Contra Costa County, Oakley is a picturesque community attractive to those seeking a relaxed and peaceful lifestyle.
 

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

 
La Costa is a great place for a quick casual lunch or dinner. This homestyle Mexican eatery has a convenient counter-serve setup plus available outdoor seating. Tacos, seafood, and ceviche are all on the menu.
 
The Oakley Tavern is a cozy little neighborhood staple known for fresh, delicious pizza. Take the kids here for a slice and try sampling some of the other great menu options like the burger combo platter and chicken kebabs. The tavern is a unique fusion restaurant with three distinct menus: pizza, burgers, and kebabs.
 
For down-home southern comfort food, there is no better option than the popular local chain Black Bear Diner. Chicken and biscuits, country-fried steak, and all-day breakfast (including pancakes the size of your face!) are just a few of the commonly ordered dishes.
 
After a meal in town, be sure to stop by the family-owned Guanatos Ice Cream Shop for a sweet treat. Using recipes passed down for generations, Guanatos creates creamy, unique flavors you won’t find anywhere else using only the freshest all-natural ingredients. Some of their distinctive flavors include Chamoyada, Cheese, Avocado, Guava, Eggnog, Rose Petals, and Chongos Zamoranos. But don’t worry, if you’re not feeling adventurous, they’ve got all the classics, too!
