Inspired by the street corner bakeries of the Arab world, Reem’s seeks to connect people through the warmth of Arab bread and hospitality. Award-winning chef and activist Reem Assil launched Reem’s as a participant of La Cocina in 2015 and one farmers market location grew to many. In 2017, Reem’s opened its inaugural restaurant in Oakland’s Fruitvale Village and built a consistent fanbase dedicated to its beloved mana’eesh, bread, pastries, dips and housemade beverages.
Reem’s kiosk in the Ferry Building Marketplace is a place where people can drop by to chat, enjoy the warmth of sourdough flatbread and bring home their daily pastries. Reem’s Ferry Building menu features classic dishes from the original Reem’s location and offerings exclusive to the Ferry Building, all depicting the quintessential Arab street food experience and prepared with California love.
