Old time soda fountain and burgers, fries, and offers breakfast dishes too. Favorite spot for the locals, and always busy. My lunch was good but not any better than any of the other local establishments.

You do not come here just for the food, which is classic Soda Fountain/Woolworth 5 & 10 counter seating.
You come here for the whole experience of a step back in time to the 1950's. Meet the locals. Stroll the Antique shop displays. Take in the classic Soda fountain seating, grille, and decor. And by god, have a milkshake or home fried potatoes.
And yes, you do have to go to the front cashier to get the keys to the restroom......

I visited Englanders during 4th of July holiday week with 8 other family members. We got seated at 2 tables immediately and the service was excellent. All meals were as ordered and the food was basic, but delicious. Highly recommend the milkshakes! So thick and yummy!

Located at the bottom of Alder St in downtown Oakland is this gem. Home cooking at reasonable prices. Complete with counter seating and yes, a soda fountain serving ice cream sodas, sundaes and more.

My co-workers and I eat from here a lot for lunch. Very good food and good portions. Reasonable prices.
