The Temescal District... still holding strong!

The Temescal district made the Wall Street Journal in December. It doesn't suprise me! Temescal has been up and coming for many years now. There is a certain charm and unpretentious vibe in the Temescal area of Oakland. It's nestled below Rockridge and has easy access to all the freeways. The district is home to a few of my favority spots as well.  If you want the best strawberry shortcake in town then you must go to BakeSale Bettys. If you are looking for a great deal on wine of a fun evening of wine tasting then you must stop at The Wine Mine. I have also become a big fan of the the taqueria La Calaca Loca. You can get a quick bite to eat while being entertained by the decor. And last and but certainly not least, is Genova Delicatessan where you can find a great sandwich. There always seems to to be a wait but the lines move fast and it's worth the wait.

As for real estate, Single family Homes prices in Temescal range from  $450,000 to $650,000 and condos in the same area range from $300,000 to $500,00.
