The Press Box: Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe
Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe puts its own spin on the traditional American diner. Co-owned by Mike Dirnt of the band Green Day, the eatery evokes nostalgia for childhood pop culture instead of vintage Americana. The menu features an array of global comfort foods including challah french toast, tofu chilaquiles, banh mi chicken sandwiches. Read on to learn more about this diner with a twist:
“The restaurant, named after a classic Clash song, serves up classic American diner fare with fresh, mostly locally sourced ingredients.” — Rolling Stone
“This edgy E’ville diner—inhabited by a few Barbies, Barrel of Monkeys lookalikes and, on occasion, part-owner Mike Dirnt from Green Day—is très trendy for breakfast, but also does a brisk lunch and dinner business.” — Oakland magazine
“Tables and booths incorporate playful themes (board games, action figures). Good music adds a punk edge, and specials boards above the bar provide entertaining reads.” — Gayot
