A great find in Oakland that features sausage sandwiches, fantastic burgers and all the '80s r&b an Evelyn "Champagne" King fan can handle.

Super cool place with nice and big garden with a lot of trendy people hanging out there.
Not a big selection of tapped beers.

Cool, trendy beer garden on upper telegraph. They have a big outdoor patio painted with huge colorful murals. Lots of good beers on tap. Dog friendly. They have food, but I did not try any.

Part hot dog, part banh mi, part sandwich but better than all. Their sausage sandwiches are to die for.

Who would have thought such amazing creation could be found at this hole in the wall spot? The front entrance suggested more of second hand vintage store than a coffee shop/sandwich spot/beer garden.

Second impression was no better. It certainly looks like a coffee shop and a pub but just didn't seem like a place that serves food. The only menu available was written on a small chalkboard that was almost too easy to miss.

Sausage sandwiches. That is all they offered. You choose from a handful of their homemade wieners. There might be a vegetarian choice somewhere but I didn't bother to look. Wild Boar & Pear. Beer Brat. Those two just looked most appealing to me for some reasons.

The outdoor patio area was like a separate world. You are immediately surrounded by beautiful brick wall painted in colorful graffiti and bold wooden furniture equipped with umbrella. It was a lovely day and perfect afternoon to soak in some sunshine.

I was beaming ear to ear once I took the first bite of my sandwich. The bread was authentic baguette used in Vietnamese banh mi. It was fresh, crispy and light. The sausage was meaty and juicy. Flavors were great and the texture was awesome. I took a few bites with some of their mustard sauce and a few bites without. It was great either way. I cannot find any fault in these sandwiches.

It was a perfect afternoon.

Telegraph is a cool bar with reasonably priced beers and a cool patio for lounging outside. If you're looking for a beer garden on a sunny day, stop in here.
