About The Local
Who we are
Alameda is a friendly locals town, which is why we opened a local, non-corporate coffee joint, run by people who love an amazing cup of coffee.
Located in historic downtown Alameda, the Local is on the ground floor of the original Masonic Lodge that was built in 1891. This building has been at the heart of the community for over 126 years and The Local strives to be a gathering spot with great coffee, live entertainment and a welcoming atmosphere for all.
Starting December 8, 2020, we are temporarily closed during the second wave of COVID related shelter at home precautions in Alameda County. We look forward to seeing you soon.
The Local Ownership
The Local was opened by Otto and Erin Wright and their sons, who live here in beautiful Alameda, California. Our family has lived around the world and found Alameda to be the most livable and enriching towns yet; we love it here and have created this business as a place for the community to gather and enjoy a cup of GREAT coffee - not more corporate swill.
About our Coffee
We have selected Mr Espresso as our coffee roaster (owned by local Alamedans too!) because of their commitment to quality and excellent line of coffees. They have a wide assortment of coffee types that are all unique and present real flavors for all kinds of preferences.
