There are only a few reasons we get out of bed early on weekends. One is to move our car on street sweeping days. Another is to have breakfast at Reem’s. This casual counter-service Arab bakery and restaurant serves an incredible shakshuka (on Saturdays and Sundays only), pastries, and coffee, in a bright, sun-filled space we’d hang out in all day. They also have excellent chicken wraps, oven-baked flatbreads, and hummus. Like Nyum Bai, Reem’s is right off the Fruitvale BART Station, so you have no excuse not to make it here.
